Instagram is developing a new optional feature to protect users from seeing and receiving nude photos in chat and Direct Messages – media reports.
The optional user controls feature is still in the early stages of development. The feature will help people shield themselves from nude photos and other unwanted messages on Instagram.
Users will be able to add nudity keywords to the “hidden words” feature, allowing users to filter direct message requests containing offensive content automatically.
In late August, the Meta-owned company said that it is testing new ways to protect users from unwanted/irrelevant content:
- Instagram is currently testing the ability to mark multiple posts in Explore as Not Interested.
- Instagram will soon start testing the ability to tell Instagram you don’t want to see suggested posts with certain words, phrases, or emojis in the caption or hashtags. Whether you’re seeing something irrelevant or moved on from something you used to like, you can use this feature to stop seeing content that’s not interesting to you.
