Instagram to Block Adults From Contacting Underage Users With New Tools
Instagram to Block Adults From Contacting Underage Users With New Tools.
For which Instagram will begin using artificial intelligence (AI) to determine a user age at signup.
Instagram Said in Blog Post :
“While many people are honest about their age, we know that young people can lie about their date of birth. We want to do more to stop this from happening, but verifying people’s age online is complex and something many in our industry are grappling with,”.
“To address this challenge, we’re developing new artificial intelligence and machine learning technology to help us keep teens safer and apply new age-appropriate features.”
Instagram said it would introduce a new feature that prevents adults from sending messages to people under 18 who don’t follow them.
Instagram Said :
“This feature relies on our work to predict peoples’ ages using machine learning technology, and the age people give us when they sign up,”.
“We’ll use this tool to alert the recipients and give them an option to end the conversation, or block, report, or restrict the adult,”.
