Revenge porn is increasingly a problem around the world.

"But the rest depends on Facebook's security controls around this".

Roughly 4% of US internet users have been victims of revenge porn, according to a 2016 report from the Data & Society Research Institute. More protections for people who could be affected by revenge porn are desperately needed, but this method of protecting privacy has some people unnerved.
