If your private photos have been shared online without your permission or manipulated inappropriately, Meta has introduced a useful solution called Stop NCII. This new tool is designed to assist you in such situations. Stop NCII stands for ‘stop non-consensual intimate image’ abuse.
Using this tool is simple. You provide the original and edited photos, answer a few questions, and share some details.
These questions might include information about the people in the photos, their age, whether you have all the related content, and whether there’s nudity involved.
The best part is, you won’t need to talk to anyone directly, and your privacy will be protected. The tool operates with encrypted data, so you don’t need to worry about sharing sensitive images.
Once your case is registered, you’ll receive a unique case number. You can use this number to check the status of your case anytime. It’s important to remember this case number and a PIN, as they won’t be retrievable later.
The tool then scans for images that match the encrypted data you provided. If these images violate the policies against intimate image abuse on partnering social media platforms, the tool will work to have them removed.
Some of the companies partnering with Stop NCII include Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Reddit, OnlyFans, Threads, and Bumble. It’s hoped that more platforms, like Twitter, will also join in the future. It’s important to note that this tool won’t be able to remove images from people’s personal devices or local storage.
