This is a fun way to spruce up familiar videos and GIFs with a personalized touch, but it's not for little kids, and check the privacy policy. Sharing GIFs and videos is an entertaining and lively way of conveying ideas and thoughts when plain text just won't cut it. Seamlessly create and share high-quality, realistic face-swap GIFs and videos with friends. The app doesn't just substitute your face on someone else's body. Instead, it seems to blend your facial features with those found in videos or GIFs. Some face swaps are better than others, with users' facial features more prominent and recognizable. Others are less obvious. Creating and sharing on Reface: Face Swap Videos is extremely user friendly. Simply browse all the available clips, and tap on the Reface tab to start the process. It even lends itself to fun with friends, accommodating clips with more than one face in them. The app offers a large collection of video clips and GIFs, ensuring something for everyone. Since some content on the app makes reference to mature themes, it's more appropriate for teens and adults. Overall, Reface: Face Swap Videos is perfect for a good laugh, but it's always good to check privacy policies on apps that collect selfies and track facial structure to see if and how developers share that information.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
