Microsoft Makes It Easier To Remove Revenge Porn Content From Bing, OneDrive And Xbox Live

bing

“Revenge porn” is on the rise across the globe. Microsoft is today announcing a new service to to help put Revenge Porn victims back in control of their images and their privacy. Microsoft will remove links to photos and videos from search results in Bing, and remove access to the content itself when shared on OneDrive or Xbox Live, when they are notified by a victim. They have set up a new reporting Web page, available today, to make it easy for victims to let us know about these particular photos and videos.

Clearly, this reporting mechanism is but one small step in a growing and much-needed effort across the public and private sectors to address the problem. It’s important to remember, for example, that removing links in search results to content hosted elsewhere online doesn’t actually remove the content from the Internet – victims still need stronger protections across the Web and around the world.
