Meta has begun developing a system for detecting nudity in photos sent to private messages on Instagram. Writes about it The Verge.
Researcher Alessandro Paluzzi posted a screenshot on his Twitter demonstrating the Nudity Protection feature. According to him, the technology hides photos with naked parts of the body and gives users the choice of whether to open them or not.
Meta has confirmed that the feature is in early development.
According to company representatives, the technology should protect users from nude photos or other unsolicited messages. Meta stressed that they will not be able to view the images or share them with third parties.
“We are working closely with experts to ensure that the new features keep people private and give them control over the messages they receive,” a company spokesperson said.
Meta has promised to share more details about the feature in the next few weeks when testing begins.
The company also noted that “Nudity Protection” is similar to the “Hidden Words” option. launched in April 2021. It allows users to filter chat requests. If the latter contains any selected filter word, the message is automatically placed in a hidden folder. Such prompts are not completely removed, and the user can decide for himself whether to read them or not.
Recall that in July 2022, the UK authorities supported the idea of scanning users’ smartphones for the presence of CSAM materials.
In December 2021, Apple added intimate photo detection in Messages to iOS 15.2.
