If you’ve ever received unwanted nude photos on Instagram (ladies will know what I’m talking about), you might soon be able to filter them out. Mobile developer and reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi recently discovered that Instagram is working on nudity protection for direct messages. While nudity is already not allowed in posts (with some exceptions), this could be now moved to messaging as well to increase safety on the platform.
One of many double standards oddities of Instagram is that it doesn’t allow nipples, but only if they’re female. Not even a famous movie director like Pedro Almodóvar can’t post a female nipple on the platform. After sharing a poster for his new movie Parallel Mothers, the director had it removed “because it violated Instagram’s nudity standards.” But did it really?
