1.   DeepSwap

The top software using deepfake AI technology this 2023 is DeepSwap. Its popularity among users stems from its all-in-one AI-powered features. DeepSwap is a one-stop software for generating deepfake AI videos, photos, and GIFs that quickly provide users with whatever file they need.

It also features a one-second face-swap photo editor, which helps make lightning-fast changes to targeted photographs.
