Is sending dick pics – these photos of male sexes – the evil of the century? While the advent of the smartphone has put cameras perpetually in our hands, it seems that many men can’t help but take snaps of what’s between their thighs. Everyone has their own hobby, of course, but where the lower (-abdomen) hurts is when they find themselves sent to women who did not ask for them. To put an end to this practice, Instagram is in the process of preparing a new tool.
Dick Pics: Hide This Penis I Can’t See
It is estimated that more than 50% of women aged between 20 and 40 have received this kind of unsolicited photos. To counter the scourge, Instagram is currently developing a tool that will prevent these photos from appearing in private messaging. The testing phases have begun, and Liz Fernandez, the app’s spokeswoman, confirmed this to The Verge.
“We are working closely with experts to ensure these new features preserve people’s privacy, while giving them control over the messages they receive. »
An AI will therefore allow to analyze the photos sent and, if she thinks it’s a shot with nudity, she will block it in the message. You will still have the opportunity to see it if you wish.

Instagram also confirms that the company will not have no access to what will be sent. More information should be communicated in the coming weeks regarding the large-scale implementation of what will help combat the cyber flashing.
