Millions of hidden porn videos found on Instagram

Millions of hidden porn videos have been found on Instagram, under Arabic Hastags. Hacker and technology blogger, Jed Ismael claims to have found more than a million porn clips and films on the social platform while searching for Arabic hashtags that read ‘movies’. “I came across this discovery by searching for the hashtag “افلام” which means movies in Arabic,” he explains. By using such hashtags, users are able to fool the system, making for a security loophole that’s easily exploitable.  

“The length of the movies is limited on Instagram, but not their effect on the young generation. By now many kids and teens have probably seen porn on Instagram . Even pornographic websites have a warning page that tells visitors that the site has explicit content,” Ismael writes in his blogpost.

Ismael also posted a video on how to find porn on Instagram. You can watch the video below. So far, Instagram has not made any comments on the issue.
