Here are some best practices to guarantee your private pictures remain just that.
Crop your face out
“My number one tip for sexting images is to keep them anonymous by not showing your face clearly [or at all],” says Carolyn. “This is really the only way to avoid uncomfortable situations with family, friends or future employers.” It’s also a good idea to edit or blur out other identifiable details, like tattoos, piercings or distinct moles, and hide all location details.
Use private messaging apps
There are apps like Couple and Between that let you send photos to your partner privately and can be set to self-destruct after a while. However, remember they can always take a screenshot.
Remember to delete
After taking and sending those shots, go to your camera roll and delete them. It will also avoid embarrassment when you pull out your phone to show your relatives some holiday snaps, only for them scroll a little too far behind.
Only send them to someone you trust
Revenge porn is vile, but it happens. Just look at Rob and Chyna. In fact, the distribution of any materials deemed “obscene” is prohibited in Singapore. Any violation of this – whether it’s photographs or videos – can get you up to three months in jail, a fine, or both.
