New online app helps users reject requests for naked photos

A new app has been developed which helps people respond to unwanted requests for naked photos online.

Send This Instead was launched by Ontario Provincial Police for IOS in an attempt to crack down on underage sexting but can also be used to respond to untoward requests for nude photos on gay dating apps such as Grindr.

With over 50 ready-made responses, the user has the ability to quickly and creatively communicate their disinterest with responses such as these:

 “Sorry, just in the middle of something… Can I reject you later?”, and “I can’t send you nude photos, but I’ll forward this to my dad and you can try asking him for some.”


The app's description states:

"We asked all the funny people we knew, ‘what would you say if someone asked you to send images you didn’t want to?’

“We took their answers and developed this app. When no doesn’t get it into their head… send this instead.”

Check out the app on iTune here.
