Nudes: When your naked photos get to the wrong hands
With modern technology you can protect your nude photos so that they do not get into the hands of the wrong person.
Almost everyone is an amateur nude model these days.
With the cameras in smart phones getting more advanced these days, not a lot of people have to summon the courage to approach a photographer for a nude photo session. Many people just whip out their phones and snap themselves in their birthday suits.
Mistakes happen, passwords are hacked and these nude photos get into the wrong hands. Yesterday, October 5, 2016, a certain lady accused a guy of accessing the nudes on her phone and threatening her with it on Twitter.
There are numerous cases like this of some deadbeat guy threatening a woman that her nude photos will be exposed to the public if she does not have sex with him. While some go ahead to call the bluff of their blackmailers, others succumb to the threat. Having your nudes in the wrong hands is an invasion of privacy.
Unfortunately, there are no laws in Nigeria that stops anyone from taking your nude photos and threaten to put it out in public. In Nigeria, the victim would be blamed instead.
As there are no laws to protect people from emotional blackmailers, people can be a lot more careful with their private photos.
Photos can be stored in special photo app that needs a password or fingerprint access before it opens. Storing sensitive photos in the general photo folder in your smart phone isn’t really a smart move and an invitation for public embarrassment down the line. Nude photos should be saved in apps that have extra security features.
Taking it a step further, after taking a nude photo, delete it on your phone. The photo must have been stored in the cloud account attached to the phone that only you have access to. When sending nudes do not show your face and it’s best to send them via SnapChat.
You can never be too safe when it comes to protecting your photos. At the end of the day, it all boils down to trust. If you do not trust someone enough, he or she should not be near your phone.
