New app helps you reject requests for naked photos

Gabby Jeffries August 7, 2014

A new app has been launched that helps users reject people asking for naked photos.

The ‘Send This Instead’ app gives people access to 57 different ways to shoot down people asking for naked pics.

Some of the responses on the app include: “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, launched on iOS by Ontario Provincial Police, is intended to crack down on sexting in under-18s, but works just as well for dealing with unwanted attention on Grindr.

Its 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.”

Inspector Scott Naylor of Ontario Provincial Police said: “We got back some really funny stuff. It’s not going to solve sexting, we’re just giving kids an alternative strategy to deal with it.”
