Microsoft Wants to Battle Revenge Porn

We can all agree posting intimate pictures or videos of your ex spouse is wrong. Jacqueline Beauchere, Microsoft’s chief online safety officer talked about what is being done to battle it. Microsoft launched its own site where users of its services, including OneDrive, Xbox Live and Bing, can report instances of intimate images and videos that have been uploaded without their consent.
Beauchere says that while Microsoft has provided ways for users to report inappropriate, personally damaging content in the past, this site makes it easier to do and removes it globally.

The reporting site can’t reverse the violation of privacy felt by revenge porn victims, nor can it remove those images or videos from other services. However this is a step in the right direction to protecting people’s private lives.
