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.
Facebook is partnering with a small Australian Government agency to prevent sexual or intimate images being shared without the subject's consent.
If you're anxious your intimate photos will end up on Instagram or Facebook, you can get in contact with Australi's e-Safety Commissioner.
The idea is that the best way to combat revenge porn if you suspect someone would do that to you is to teach Facebook's algorithms how you look naked, so pictures of you can't be shared online using Facebook's services.
3GB RAM variant of Nokia 5 Launched in India at Rs. 13499
Camera wise, the Nokia 5 rocks a 13MP sensor at the back, and a 5MP sensor on the front for selfies and video calls. Apart from the upgraded RAM, both the variants feature the same internals.
"We would expect that Facebook has absolutely watertight systems to guard the privacy of victims". If Facebook has the photos, it can specifically recognize and instantly block them if they turn up elsewhere on Facebook, Messenger, or even Instagram.
"The service providers turn around and say "yes we removed the images", but what they don't do is remove the accounts", Szalkiewicz proclaimed. The company's software creates a "hash" (a digital fingerprint) of your nude photo, which tags that photo if someone else tries to upload it and prevents it from being put on Facebook.
In order to begin the prevention process, users must first complete an online form on the e-safety commissioner's website detailng their concerns, before being asked to send the pictures they are anxious about to themselves on Messenger, while the e-safety commissioner's office notifies Facebook. The answer is-revenge porn.
Earlier this year, Facebook implemented a photo-matching tool in the U.S. to stop sharing of content tagged as revenge porn in the past.
For Facebook, revenge porn is a big issue.
But the real question is - who is ready to share their nudes with Facebook? Australia's safety commish Julie Inman Grant defended the experiment, arguing "they're not storing the image".
