Facebook Urges Consumers To Send Nude Photos To Prevent Their Upload

Facebook Image

"We would expect that Facebook has absolutely watertight systems to guard the privacy of victims". "This program is completely voluntary".

There are fears the images could be found before being deleted, intercepted on their way to Facebook, or people could get around the technology by simply resizing images. Australia's eSafety Commission said Facebook doesn't store the image, it stores a link and uses artificial intelligence to sort out the pictures.

Facebook Australia's plan to fight revenge porn seems a bit counterintuitive.

The social media network, Facebook, is combating "revenge porn" in a very unique way in Australia.

In her post, Davis clarifies that eSafety does not have access to the actual image.

The company are encouraging users to upload their nude images to Messenger.




According to The Guardian, anyone who shared an intimate, nude or sexual images with their partner and are anxious that they might distribute them without their consent can use Messenger to send the images to be "hashed" - which means that Facebook "converts the image into a unique digital fingerprint that can be used to identify and block any attempts to re-upload that same image". "Once they delete the image from the thread, we will delete the image from our servers".

A trial is now taking place in Australia but is soon to be launched in the United Kingdom, the U.S. and Canada.

NCII is short for non-consensual intimate imagery. Facebook says it won't store the photos.

Some critics, however, suggest a better method would be one that doesn't require uploading the image in the first place. Further instances of the images will then be blocked.

Stamos responded to the idea to calculate the hash locally, saying "photo fingerprinting algorithms are usually not included in clients to prevent the development of circumvention techniques" and "humans need to review to prevent adversarial reporting".
