To Combat Revenge Porn, Facebook Asks Users To Register Nude Photos

  • Facebook wants users to share their nude photos with it as it fights revenge porn

"The organization might then tell them to send a nude photo of themselves to themselves via Messenger".

According to reports, as part of the pilot project run in Australia, users will have to first fill an online form on the e-safety commissioner's website. If someone else tries to upload the same image you send Facebook Messenger, it will have the same hash value and the upload process will stop.

Once the nude image is uploaded, Facebook will use technology to "hash it", which is essentially giving it a digital fingerprint. The company won't store the images directly but create a hash out of them using the anti-revenge porn tool.

Anxious that an abusive ex may upload intimate images of you to social media? Well, share your nude photo first with Facebook.

Facebook has teamed up with the e-Safety Commissioner to protect your intimate photos in case your phone gets hacked or you and your soulmate weren't really made for each other because your now-ex is the type of jerk who would even consider posting revenge porn.

Julie Inman Grant, Australia's e-Safety commissioner, said Facebook would not permanently store the images, only their digital fingerprints, which are capable of blocking further attempts to upload the pictures but can not be decoded to produce the images themselves.

"The photo's information you upload is harvested and numbers are stored - but not the image itself", she said. CNBC reports Facebook's anti-revenge porn pilot program is available in the U.S., U.K., and Canada. "My specialty is digital forensics and I literally recover deleted images from computer systems all day - off disk and out of system memory".

In a statement shared with Newsweek, one law firm said the initiative could make a big impact on addressing the issue, so long as Facebook is able to properly secure the naked images and videos that are sent to it.

Revenge porn is increasingly a problem around the world.

"With its billions of users, Facebook is one place where many offenders aggress because they can maximize the harm by broadcasting the nonconsensual porn to those most close to the victim".

According to a 2016 study by the Data & Society Research Institute, One in 25 Americans has been a victim of threats or posts of almost nude or nude images without their permission.

Because of these high numbers, Carrie Goldberg, a lawyer who specializes in sexual privacy, welcomed Facebook's revenge porn plan.
