The cryptographic signature, marked with a hash, will allow Facebook to identify inappropriate images without the need to store them on a database.
If you're in Australia, Facebook wants your nude photographs, but it's not what you may be thinking.
It requires users who are anxious about their intimate photos being shared on the platform to upload them to Messenger.
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. "If someone fears they are at risk of revenge porn, they can contact e-Safety", they explained. "Australia is 1 of 4 countries participating in a pilot with Facebook to help prevent sharing of intimate images".
The social media company is right now testing the new strategy in Australia where it is working in collaboration with the office of the e-Safety Commissioner to device methods so that revenge porn can be dealt with. Firstly, the user has to upload an explicit photo of themselves to the messenger (later delete the same from chat).
Revenge porn is increasingly a problem around the world.
