Swedish web designer Per Axbom has created a website called the "DickPicLocator," which helps you to track the senders of unwelcome penis pics. The DPL is a database that is an important tool (pun intended) in combating cyber-flashing, a creepy trend where sexually explicit photos are sent to unsuspecting recipients via Airdrop. The DPL uses GPS coordinates to track down the location of the sender of the unwanted file. Since it was released on August 8, 2017, over 10,000 penis pics have been uploaded to the website's database. That's a whole lotta penis pics.
Cyber-flashing. Cyber-flashing is a disturbing trend wherein sexually explicit photos are shared with unsuspecting recipients via Airdrop. Cyber-flashing is becoming a serious problem on subways and in other areas where iPhone users are in close proximity to each other.
Airdrop. Many iPhone users have their Airdrop setting configured to accept files from everyone. This is how cyber-flashers are able to send their unwanted photos.
Per Axbom. Like most of the public, Swedish web developer Per Axbom was horrified to hear of the dick pic epidemic. So, Axbom decided to find a way to put a stop to the unwanted sharing of dick pics.
