Meta rolled out a new tool on Thursday that stops revenge porn from spreading on Facebook and Instagram, but it requires people to upload their sexually explicit photos and videos to a website.

When someone is concerned their intimate images or videos have been posted or might be posted to either of the social media platforms, they can create a case through a global website called StopNCII.org, which stands for 'Stop Non-Consensual Intimate Images.'

Each photo or video uploaded receives a digital fingerprint, or unique hash value, which is used to detect its copy that was shared or attempted to be posted.

However, the website was created with 50 global partners and sharing intimate images and video of yourself with a third-party website may not sit well with most users, but Meta says they 'will not have access to or store copies of the original images.'

'Only hashes, not the images themselves, are shared with StopNCII.org and participating tech platforms,' Antigone Davis, global head of safety for Meta, shared in a blog post.

'This feature prevents further circulation of that NCII content and keeps those images securely in the possession of the owner.'

DailyMail.com has contacted Meta about the safety of the tool and has yet to receive a response.
