Instagram working on the nudity protection feature

Unsolicited images that contain nudity or sexually explicit content are a major concern on any social media platform.

Instagram is testing a new way to protect users from exposure of unwanted content in the app, via DM, with a new one Nudity protection filter this would block probable nudes in your IG Direct messages.

The new “nudity protection” option will allow Instagram to activate the nudity detection element in iOS, released late last year, which scans incoming and outgoing messages on your device for potential nudes in attached images .

“We are working closely with experts to ensure these new features preserve people’s privacy by giving them control over the messages they receive,” Meta spokesperson Liz Fernandez said.

Where detected, the system can then blur the image, as Instagram notes, which most importantly means that Instagram and parent company Meta would not download and analyze your emails for this feature, everything would be done on your device.
