Top 10 Deepfake Apps, Software and Websites in 2022

By Cecilia Hwung | Last Update:

It was tacitly accepted that moving images with sound was a reliable form of evidence until digital technology gave us the tool to change the game. Fueled by the sophistication of artificial intelligence, the past few years have seen a remarkable rise in the breadth of deepfakes' applications – the videos in which the face of the performer is replaced with someone else's likeness. As the tools to produce the synthetic media evolve, rapid progress has been made to the point where, today, users can easily make convincing deepfakes using the right deepfake apps. Thus in this post, we have highlighted the top 10 deepfake apps and websites that you could dabble in for either research purposes or simple delectation.

Deepfake apps

Note:

Since deepfakes can become the subject of misinformation, any action that involves nefarious intent or crosses the ethical line is not suggested.

1. Reface

Formerly known as Doublicat app, Reface is one of the top-rated and bizarre deepfake apps. Powered by GANs framework design, the tool could map your face onto another image in an eerily realistic way, with convincing facial expressions and movements that look very much like you. The home screen features a wealth of music video clips, movie clips, and celebrity videos that you can use for face swap. Collections of video clips and GIFs are organized by categories, including Game of Thrones, Victoria's Secret, WWE, Hot GIFs, Marvel Heroes, Girl Power, and Love. Users can also use the search function to browse trending searches or GIFs.

Platform: Android & iOS

Price: Free; offers optional in-app purchase options ranging from $2.49 - $24.99.

2. Zao

Rocketing to the top of app store charts shortly after its release back in 2019, Zao, a free Chinese deepfake face-swapping app for both iOS and Android, can paint your likeness automatically over famous actors in movies and TV clips. The deepfake technology has enabled an arena for users to become the stars and swap places with the likes of Marilyn Monore, Leonardo DiCaprio, or Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory within seconds. Characterized by its impressive processing speed and accuracy, Zao works to scan the image you upload and transpose it to the character of your choice, fully animating you in accordance with how the character moves.

3. DeepFaceLab

Programed as an open-source Github project, DeepFaceLab, a top-notch deepfake software for Windows, is, without a doubt, the most important technology that drives the vast majority of this generation of deepfakes. Featuring great engineering support, and flexible and performance-focused implementation, the utility enables you to achieve smooth and photorealistic face-swapping results. Its success stems from weaving deep learning and AI technology into a design that balances speed and ease of use as well as the booming of computer vision in face recognition, alignment, reconstruction, segmentation, etc.

But the first-time users might need some instructions to get started, and you have to try certain videos with certain models with certain parameters and see what works best. The longer you are in the game, the better you are at it.

4. Wombo

Priding itself as the world's best AI-powered lip-sync app, Wombo could make just about any photo literally sing. The deepfake service is remarkably easy to use and allows anyone to participate in what appears to be a growing trend of synthetic media. Just snap a selfie or pick a head-on image of a character, and upload it to the app. Housing a variety of character images, the app enables you to unlock numerous customizable feeds within a few clicks. Moreover, Wombo states clearly in its privacy policy that it does not lay claim to any of the images that are used in the app and will delete the called "facial feature data" after the images are created.

Platform: Android & iOS

Price: Free; $4.49 a month or $29.99 a year.

5. FaceApp

Considered by many to be the best face photo editing app for iOS and Android, FaceApp generates highly realistic transformations of human faces in photographs, adding to the image uploaded an impression, make-up, smiles, hair colors, ages, breads, filters, background and more. What makes this deepfake tool unique, though, is the way it does things. Instead of relying on base-level photo editing to slap a set of smiling dental onto your grimacing face, the app uses innovative AI technology to reverse your frown and make you look a little more cheerful.

Platform: Android & iOS

Price: Free; $19.99 for a lifetime subscription; a $1.99 monthly subscription or $9.99 per year option.

6. Faceswap

Compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux, Faceswap, similar to DeepFaceLab, runs as a leading free and open-source multi-platform deepfake software, offering an arbitrary face-swapping framework on images and videos with one single trained model. Powered by Python, Keras, and Tensorflow, the program has an active team supporting and developing the software and is hosted on GitHub. But it requires a modern GPU and arduous efforts to fully grasp the workflow, which might be unideal for those who deepfake for just fun.

Platform: Windows, macOS and Linux

Price: Free.

7. Face Swap Live

Having made plenty of headlines thanks to the feat of its ingenuity, Face Swap Live enables users to switch faces with another person in real-time and create videos using a set of bundled live filters with the device's camera. You can select from the ones that come preloaded or search for a particular picture you'd like to morph yourself into. Unlike other face swap apps that can only use static photos, Face Swap Live swaps faces live right from your camera's video feed, but it does fall a little short in terms of accuracy as the morphed images might come out unnatural.

Platform: Android & iOS

Price: $0.99 for iOS, $1.99 for Android.

8. Deep Art Effects

Beyond just a deepfake app, Deep Art Effects also provides an AI-powered image enhancement solution that transforms ordinary photos, selfies, and even video clips into attractive and engaging works of fine art. Available for both desktop and mobile end-users, the tool adopts an advanced AI algorithm design to swap faces of pictures with authentic and stylistic output quality. Departing from the dull and transitional filter, Deep Art Effects is a collaboration between humans, machine, and the concept of art.

9. Deepfakes Web

For those who seek a quick in-and-out deepfake app, an online solution would be a great way to go. Deefakes Web is a web-based software that harnesses machine learning to face-swap the subject with another. All you need is to upload your videos, click the button, and the app will implement the rest. The reuse model feature built in allows you to improve the quality of your deepfake results. Every deepfake generated on the tool comes out with a clear and visible watermark indicating that the video is deepfake. Besides, personal data privacy is ensured according to its official statement.
