Alessandro Pauzzi, a corporate developer, also offered a sneak preview of the new function on Twitter. He posted the screenshot on his microblogging site “Instagram is working on chat nudity protection. Your device’s technology protects photographs that may include nudity in chats. Instagram is unable to access images.”

Cases of cyber flashing and bullying on social media networks have escalated in recent years. Instagram is one of the platforms where such instances have become pretty prevalent.

According to a YouGov poll conducted in 2017, more than 40 per cent of young women received unsolicited images of a man’s private parts or unwanted graphic photos. According to a Glitch poll, 17 per cent of women received unsolicited pornography in June or July 2020.
