Instagram’s finally working on protecting users from unsolicited nude photos




Unsolicited nude photos are a massive problem on social media, but Instagram is reportedly working on a tool that could help. Instagram is working on developing a useful safety feature that will protect users from receiving unsolicited nude photos in their direct messages (DMs).

Cyberflashing is reportedly one such crime that impacts millions of women around the globe. In order to filter out unsolicited and unwanted nude photos, Instagram is developing a feature that will shield people from explicit content.

Meta confirmed that the feature is still in the early stages of development. The new “Nudity Protection” feature is similar to the “Hidden Words” feature which was launched by Instagram last year. The feature allows users to automatically filter direct message requests containing offensive content.

According to the reports, this feature is going to be completely optional. Meta confirms that the platform will use machine learning to prevent nude pictures from being delivered on Instagram.

One of the meta’s Spokespeople0 gives the statement:

“We’re working closely with experts to ensure these new features preserve people’s privacy while giving them control over the messages they receive”

The aim of this feature is to shield people from nude images or other unsolicited messages. As further protection, the company said it can’t view the images itself nor share them with third parties.

However, the technology will not allow Meta to view the actual messages or share them with third parties. Meta says it’ll share more details about the new feature in the next few weeks.

How does it work?

That feature allows users to filter abusive messages in DM requests based on keywords. If a request contains any filter word you’ve chosen, it’s automatically placed in a hidden folder that you can choose to never open — though it’s not completely deleted.
