Dating App Launches A New Feature To Blur Out Nude Images
As reported by The Independent, dating app Bumble has launched a new feature that automatically blurs nude images.
Earlier this year, the female-forward app, which encourages women to make the first move when they match with men, announced the development of its Private Detector Tool.
By utilising artificial intelligence, the tool captures images in real-time with 98 percent accuracy in order to detect if a user has been sent content that is inappropriate.
They are then offered the option to tap to reveal the picture or message in question.
According to Wolfe Herd,
“The digital world can be a very unsafe place overrun with lewd, hateful and inappropriate behaviour, there’s limited accountability, making it difficult to deter people from engaging in poor behaviour.”
“The development of ‘Private Detector’ is another undeniable example of that commitment,” he stated.
“Someone tried sending me a nude and I was SO happy when this popped up,” one person wrote, in reference to the Private Detector tool. “Guys – send dog pictures, not d*** pictures.”
Another person commented: “Finally.”
