The Federal Bureau of Investigation considers any mobile app developed in Russia to be a “potential counterintelligence threat,” it said on Monday, responding to a U.S. lawmaker’s query about face-editing photo app FaceApp, APA reports quoting Reuters.

The viral smartphone app saw a surge in popularity this year due to a filter that ages photos of users’ faces.
