#HideNudes: 🙈 🙈 🙈 🙈 🙈 🙈 🙈 🙈 8/10
There are few moments more nerve-wracking than when someone is scrolling through your photos and you know you have a couple sneaky nudes just waiting to pop up in there somewhere.
Sweat bubbles begin to build as you watch your unsuspecting friend flip from image to image, like a countdown to your soul-crushing moment of shameless nakey-nakey doom.
Luckily, as for most millennial problems, there’s an app to fix that now. Whew!
A nude app (fittingly named Nude) is on the market, promising to protect you from those increeeedibly awkward moments when a stranger/friend/parent decides to scroll way too high up in your camera roll.
The app is the brainchild of 21-year-olds Jessica Chiu and Y.C. Chen from the University of California, Berkeley, and was created to hide ~scandalous~ photos you don’t want anyone and everyone to see. It works by using artificial intelligence to scan through all of your photos, and pull out any potentially sensitive content. These particular images are then deleted from your camera roll (and on sneaky iCloud!) and stored in the app that requires a password to unlock. Break-in attempts are also tracked and reported straight to you.
It’s a bit like having a hidden vault deep in a dungeon reserved for just your nudes. (Yay!)
Inspired by Hollywood actresses who have spoken about their concerns over keeping sensitive digital content secure, Chiu and Chen created Nude with the ultimate goal of keeping nudes and private images, well, private.
To ensure this privacy, the two went through millions of images on sites like PornHub (it was only apt) to power the algorithm and make it most accurate and fitting for the biggest range of body types/race.

Available currently for iOS (and soon Android!), we’re looking forward to sleeping very, very soundly knowing we can take ALL the nudes and not blush bright red whenever a friend scrolls through our phone.
