Saturday, November 11, 2017

Want to protect yourself from being embarrassed by nude photos?

Individuals who have shared intimate, nude or sexual images with partners and are worried that the partner (or ex-partner) might distribute them without their consent can use Messenger to send the images to be "hashed". This means that the company converts the image into a unique digital fingerprint that can be used to identify and block any attempts to re-upload that same image.

I swear I had the same idea but I lacked the technology to compare photos via computer so I was going to have to do it by hand. Fatties need not apply for the service.
