Well, we suppose it's a sign of the times, but anyway… a new app, appropriately called Nude, claims to have developed technology that can identify, group, and make your nude pictures stored on your smartphone disappear from public access, all without your help.
Currently, the app is only available for iOS devices but an Android-based app is in development according to the team behind Nude.
Automating the process of removing potentially embarrassing photos from your phone might sound promising but is it safe?
Well, you decide.
The app works by examining your photos for sensitive material using algorithms designed just for that purpose. Nude then removes your photos from your phone and iCloud storage and keeps them stored locally, within the app. The pics are then stored in a PIN-protected vault.
For iOS 11 users, the entire process is local and uses no outside source to view your photos, relying instead upon the app’s built-in machine learning.
