The worst aspect about Instagram is receiving unsolicited nude photos in your direct messages, and the corporation is now striving to fix this issue.
Instagram is calling this feature “Nudity Protection,” and it will discreetly identify and hide photos in the conversation that may contain nudity if it finds them. This will be a feature that can be turned on or off at your discretion, and the photos will stay hidden until you want to see them.
With the Nudity Protection setting in place, Instagram will automatically blur the photo attached in the chat if it detects nudity. You will then be alerted that the message you received includes a photo that is explicitly sexual, and given the option to view the photo if you so choose.
