Instagram Plans to Protect Users From Unsolicited Nude Photos

Instagram is developing a feature that will allow users to block unsolicited nude photos in their direct messages. 

“Nudity protection” will be an optional privacy setting, similar to the Hidden Words feature launched last year, which filters out messages containing abusive language and emojis. Using machine learning, Instagram will prevent nude pictures from being delivered. The company also won’t view or store any of the images.
