Instagram is developing a nudity filter for direct messages

Instagram is testing a new way to filter out unsolicited nude messages sent over direct messages, confirming reports of the development posted by app researcher Alessandro Paluzzi earlier this week. The images indicated Instagram was working on technology that would cover up photos that may contain nudity but noted that the company would not be able to access the photos itself.

Technology on your device covers photos that may contain nudity in chats. Instagram CAN'T access photos.
