The popular dating app Bumble has finally created a new tool to fight back against unsolicited d*ck pics being sent and received by its users.
An AI named 'Private Detector' will be able to scan images sent in chats for signs of X-rated imagery and blur them out as well as assigning a warning.
55 million people use the app, which is claiming that it can separate out the lewd pictures with 98 percent accuracy.
The firm said: "With our revolutionary AI, we're able to detect potentially inappropriate content and warn you about the image before you open it."
"We're committed to keeping you protected from unsolicited photos so you can have a safer experience meeting new people on Bumble," the company stated.
Bumble is one of Tinder's major competitors, but works by only allowing women to initiate a chat with their matches. The app is one of the few that allows its users to trade images.

In June, the AI technology trained to spot nudes will start flagging possible rude images as soon as they land in your inbox.
The pic will be blurred and will also involve a message underneath that reads: "This photo is blurred to protect you from inappropriate content." Recipients can either block and report the image or open it anyway.
Private Detector was created specifically to tackle a plague of sexual harassment and abuse which has been streaming from dating apps for years. Especially for the safety of women, dating apps can be a dangerous feature.
A YouGov poll recently found that more than half of young women have received nude pictures online, and three quarters of images were unsolicited.
"The sharing of lewd images is a global issue of critical importance," said Andrey Andreev. "It falls upon all of us in the social media and social networking worlds to lead by example and to refuse to tolerate inappropriate behaviour on our platforms."
Andreev heads up Badoo, the network of dating apps which includes Bumble.
The organisation's bosses slammed a misogynistic "small-minded" fat-shamer in a recent open letter, and banned him from the app, according to The Sun.
