  • The increasing proficiency in AI and Photoshop is fueling the creation of deceptive explicit images.
  • This has raised concerns about the growth of ‘revenge porn’ incidents.

With the surge in AI and Photoshop expertise, the potential for creating deceptive explicit images and engaging in ‘revenge porn’ is on the upswing. “Revenge porn” pertains to the non-consensual sharing of sexually explicit content. While various platforms worldwide aid cybercrime victims, what steps should one take if their personal images have already been disseminated?

Operated by a UK-based helpline for revenge porn, offers support to adults (18+) dealing with intimate image abuse. This platform assists adult victims of Non-Consensual Intimate Image (NCII) abuse and strives to halt the circulation of private sexual content across partner platforms. It operates as part of SWGfL, a UK-based nonprofit charity. Claiming an impressive removal rate of over 90%, the platform has successfully eradicated more than 200,000 non-consensual intimate images from the internet through innovative technological means. 

How does the platform function? employs a specialised tool that generates a hash or digital fingerprint from the provided intimate images/videos. This process involves utilising an algorithm to assign a unique hash value to an image. Notably, all duplicate copies of the same image share the exact same hash value. Subsequently, shares this generated hash with its collaborating companies. This partnership aids in swiftly detecting and eliminating shared images from online platforms.

Who are the platform’s partners? has forged partnerships with numerous industry giants in the technology sector. These include prominent names like Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, TikTok, Bumble, Threads, and OnlyFans. Beyond these established collaborations, the platform boasts a widespread global network of partners. This network includes esteemed organisations such as Breakthrough, Centre for Social Research, RATI Foundation for Social Change, Red Dot Foundation, and Social Media Matters in India.
