Portfolio uses on-device hashing technology to prevent the non-consensual sharing of intimate images online. People concerned about intimate image abuse can create unique identifiers of their images, (also known as ‘hashes’ or digital fingerprints) from their own device. Only hashes are then shared with, not the original image (or video), ensuring that the intimate content never leaves the user’s device. Hashes are then shared with participating partners and if an image is uploaded to one of these sites, matches the corresponding hash, and meets partner policy requirements, the image will be sent for moderation. If the image meets the criteria of an intimate image, it will be removed and blocked from being shared further across partner platforms.
