Instagram will automatically block penis pics in DMs with new feature
Instagram wants to prevent users from receiving unwanted messages with a new feature. The filter must, among other things, block penispics in the DMs so that users do not see them without wanting to.
A newly developed algorithm should detect unwanted messages and photos. In addition to nude photos, the algorithm must also recognize malicious messages such as insults and threats and then filter them out before the recipient sees them. The development of the filter is still in its early stages and has yet to be tested.
A spokesperson for parent company Meta promises in conversation with CNET that the new feature will be privacy-friendly. On Instagram, DMs are encrypted and normally only visible to the sender and receiver. According to the spokesperson, the new filter does not change that, because the messages are not checked by people, but by an algorithm.
