Meta (in the recent past, Facebook) has offered its users a new way to deal with the leakage of intimate photos. The British company Revenge Porn Helpline helps her in this.
Users are encouraged to upload their intimate photos to the StopNCII platform, of which they fear leaks. After that, the snapshots will be added to the common database, and they will no longer be able to load them into services owned by Meta. Meta owns Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp.
Meta and the Revenge Porn Helpline will not be able to access the photos themselves, as only hash data will be uploaded to the StopNCII platform. It is impossible to restore the original snapshot from this data. The disadvantage of this protection method is that the algorithms are able to recognize only the photo that was “fed” to it, and may miss the modified file (for example, a mirrored or cropped image).
