Send us your nude pics that you do NOT want to have online

Revenge porn is a serious issue online and few would deny that it has serious repercussions on the perpetrators.

Heck, there is a large population in America who thinks that any pornography online is a serious cancer and that appropriation penalties are required.

But now there’s a new strategy from Meta, formerly Facebook, according to a post on DIYPhotography on Friday.

The company says that if you don’t want to have them online, that’s where you should send your porn pictures.

DIYPhotography confirmed the problem but was skeptical of the solution.

« Meta came up with a ‘brilliant’ idea to prevent your nude content from spreading on Facebook and Instagram. The company launched a tool that allows you to send your explicit photos to a hashing database, so that they can be recognized and removed from the website platforms in the future.

« Needless to say, this has raised some concerns in the community. »

The report explains that the Revenge Porn Helpline, Meta, and dozens of other groups started the site to address the issue.

Would you trust Meta with your explicit images?

“If you suspect someone may or is threatening to share your intimate photos, you can submit your case through the website. To do this, you need to submit photos or videos showing you naked or half-naked, engaging in a sexual act, and so on. Of course, this isn’t very well received by the public considering that meta is involved. We all know it’s not exactly synonymous with data protection, « the report said.

The process is that once a case has started, the person seeking protection must provide information such as: B. Who can be seen in the pictures and where they were filmed.

« Then you can upload it [the image] – but it will never leave your computer, ”the report said. “It is only used to generate a ‘digital fingerprint’ that assigns a unique hash value to your image or video. Then all the technology companies involved in receive the hash and can use it to see if someone has shared your private content on their platforms or is trying to share it. « 

Meta explained: « Only hashes, not the images themselves, are shared with and the participating technology platforms. This function prevents the further distribution of this NCII content and keeps these images safely in the possession of the owner. »

The report says Facebook tried something similar four years ago when people were told to contact an e-safety officer and send the pictures or videos through Messenger.

“It seems that uses the same technology, only your pictures and videos don’t go through Messenger. It’s a good idea in general and revenge porn is definitely something we have to fight back and I don’t really deserve my trust so I’m still a little skeptical. I think time will tell if it’s a good idea or not, « the DIYPhotography report said.

NBC said Meta worked with a UK nonprofit to develop the software.

According to the report, Karuna Nain, director of global security at Meta, said the concept is for an independent website to make the system easier for companies to use.
