INSTAGRAM is taking a stand against unsolicited d*** pics sliding into people’s DMs.
But for the first time, Meta is working on a nude filter for any sent by creeps in private messages as well.
If one’s detected, it’ll be blurred from view, with a button to reveal all if you so choose to.
The feature is designed to better protect women from cyberflashers.
A shocking four in ten women aged 18-34 have been sent an unsolicited sexual photo according to YouGov research.
Building such systems to work properly usually means feeding it with thousands of photos so it knows what to look out for.
Soos die een of ander deel in wat gebeur het – óf in berigte, this could well mean Instagram is pushing loads of d*** pics into the AI – though Meta hasn’t confirmed this is how it works.
Die Facebook owner is currently developing the feature and has said it will be optional.
In an early screenshot, a popup gives users the chance to switch it on.

The firm has made it clear that Instagram can’t view your photos.
“We’re working closely with experts to ensure these new features preserve people’s privacy, while giving them control over the messages they receive,” Meta spokesperson Liz Fernandez told The Verge.
There are plans to make cyberflashing a criminal offence in the UK.
Sending unwanted nudes was added into the controversial Online Safety Bill earlier this year.
Anyone caught could be sentenced to up to two years in prison.
But ministers are now reviewing the wider Online Safety Bill, over concerns that some parts of it could limit free speech.
