Facebook wants Australians to upload their nudes to its Messenger app to help Facebook tag them as non-consensual explicit media, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Apparently revenge porn is a big problem Down Under (pun intended) and Facebook has teamed up with Australian government agency e-Safety to prevent people from sharing intimate photos of others without consent.

How it works is you send a nude photo of yourself to yourself on Messenger. The photo itself is not stored, just the link to the photo, which then allows Facebook to use artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies to recognize the photo in the future without needing to store them on Facebook’s servers.

So if anyone tries to share the nude you’ve uploaded, it will be flagged as non-consensual sharing and blocked from being uploaded.

This isn’t the first time Facebook has tried to combat revenge porn. Back in April, Facebook launched photo-matching technology that meant photos reported and tagged as revenge porn couldn’t be shared on its platform anymore.

In semi-related news, here are eight alternatives to Tinder.
