Dating App To Warn Users About Incoming Dick Pics
Goodbye, unsolicited nudes.
If you're a woman and you've used a dating app, odds are you've had a surprise dick pic slide into your DMs.
Odds also are that you didn't want a bar of it.
Well, come June, that will be in the past because Bumble is introducing AI technology to rid the app of dirty snaps.
The fittingly named Private Detector scans images in real time and will blur and alert users to the lewd ones.
Those who receive a dodgy image can choose to view it, block it or report the sender.
The function can detect a dick pic with 98 percent accuracy.
Of course, it doesn't only apply to women, men are affected too. The feature will also be rolled out on Badoo, Lumen and Chappy.
“The digital world can be a very unsafe place overrun with lewd, hateful and inappropriate behaviour", said Whitney Wolfe Herde, Founder and CEO of Bumble.
"There’s limited accountability, making it difficult to deter people from engaging in poor behaviour."
She said that the 'Private Detector' is part of the company's commitment to helping make the internet safer.
According to CNN, the dating app currently hires 5,000 content moderators who sift through millions of photos each day.
In terms of nudes appearing in people's dating profiles -- that's already a definite no no.
