MicrosoftIt was announced last month that Google would be making efforts to help eliminate “revenge porn” from making its presence known on their search results by coming up with a system that allows people to report explicit images posted of them without their consent.

Microsoft has decided to do the same thing by launched a new reporting page today, where somebody will be able to submit a link to nude and explicit photos and videos they want removed from Bing search results.

While people have been able to report to us in the past, we’ve set up a new reporting Web page, available today, to make it easy for victims to let us know about these particular photos and videos.

Users are being asked on Microsoft’s new “revenge porn” reporting page to submit their name and email address, along with a URL to the offensive material.  Something else that Microsoft is inquiring about in their reporting page is whether or not the user has ever agreed to the content being put online and distributed, and if the personal information appears with the photo or video.

As of this time, English is the only language the page is available in.  Over the following weeks, more languages will be available.  It was confirmed that when links are removed from search results, they are removed globally.

Just as with Right To Be Forgotten, despite the fact the results will be removed from search, Microsoft has made a point that the content itself will not be removed from wherever it is being hosted online.  If you want more information on revenge porn, Microsoft recommends that you visit the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative or Without My Consent.
