Are deepfakes really dangerous?

Deepfakes videos are a trend, a trend chosen by many people. However, for many people they are really dangerous. What’s the truth? Follow the article below to find the solution.

Deepfakes is a video created to show people things they have never done in real life. This can be done to destroy someone’s reputation. And as deep imaging technology improves, it becomes easier to create videos that can fool the public.
