Meta launches 'Take It Down' to tackle crime against teenagers




Meta is now actively working on preventing crime against teenagers through a new tool called 'Take It Down'.

The tool will specifically target crimes such as revenge porn which has increased rapidly over the years. The crime has affected many teenagers as it targets their mental Health, reputation, and relationships. 

With the help of the tool, minors can attach a hash or fingerprint to their intimate photos directly from their devices. The anonymous number of that picture will be stored in the database of Meta. This way, if anyone else tries to post it, it will be matched with the original photo. It will then be reviewed and removed from the platforms.

The tool will work for all Meta platforms as long as the pictures are not encrypted. The tool is available for teenagers as well as their parents who can use it on their behalf.
