Michelle Baran 

It’s not too late to score a good deal.

Haven’t booked your Thanksgiving or end of year holiday travel yet? Fear not, procrastinators. According to online booking data, the best days to book are still ahead of us.

Thomas Brewster - Forbes Staff

Associate editor at Forbes, covering cybercrime, privacy, security, and surveillance.

FaceApp is a massively popular face-altering app for Android and iOS, but there are privacy concerns about its AI tech.

No, FaceApp isn’t taking photos of your face and taking them back to Russia for some nefarious project. At least that’s what current evidence suggests.

After going viral in 2017, and amassing more than 80 million active users, it’s blowing up again thanks to the so-called FaceApp Challenge, in which celebs (and everyone else) have been adding years to their visage with the app’s old-age filter.
