What is cyber flashing?

Cyber ​​flashing is the act of intentionally sending a stranger an unsolicited sexual image using the AirDrop feature on an iPhone. These images are usually of male genitalia.

Specific to iOS devices such as iPads and iPhones, as well as Apple Macs, AirDrop uses Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to connect to other devices over a short distance.

People are often the target of cyber flashes via AirDrop on public transport due to the technology’s short range.

There is currently no law directly addressing cyber-flashing in England and Wales, despite the act being made illegal in Scotland 12 years ago.

The New York legislature is considering a bill requiring sexual harassment training for anyone caught in the act.

Texas passed a law last year banning the practice. It carries a $500 fine.

Cyber ​​flashing was criminalized in Scotland in 2009 under Section 6 of the sexual offense, while a similar measure was also passed unanimously in May 2019 in the Texas Senate.

Police investigated the first-ever cyber flash incident in 2015 after an unwanted graphic surfaced on a shocked London commuter iPhone.

Three cases were reported in 2016 and 15 in 2017.

“Meet Larry who just dropped a whole flight of photos of his dick,” the post reads. “Fortunately, I accepted it, saw who sent it and immediately started speaking out. Stay tuned for the police escort.’

Southwest Airlines did not respond to requests for comment about the Cabo pervert, but in June they confirmed that “Larry” had sent inappropriate photos to the passengers.

“We can confirm that this unfortunate incident occurred on a recent flight from Detroit to Denver,” a Southwest Airlines spokesperson said. The mail. “Our flight attendants immediately addressed the situation and the crew requested that local law enforcement officers meet the flight upon arrival, which they did and then arrested the person responsible.

Southwest Airlines has zero tolerance for this obscene and unacceptable behavior and we sincerely apologize to the other customers on board.”

Last year, Texas became one of the first states to ban the practice, also known as Cyber-flashing.

It is now a crime punishable by a $500 fine to send dirty photos unsolicited in a digital format.

New York State Sentor James Skoufis has introduced legislation, with the support of dating app Bumble, the National Organization for Women and the National Women’s Political Caucus, to outlaw the law.

“These images are often transferred anonymously between mobile phones via text or digital file-sharing services, and often on public transport or in large public institutions — invading the recipient’s personal space and undermining their sense of security,” Skoufis said when he spoke. introduced the measure in Can.

His law would require sexual harassment training for those who have broken the law, but stricter measures are being offered in England and Wales.

Lawmakers in those countries are considering the Online Safety Bill, which would punish violators with up to two years in prison for sending “d**k photos.”

Scotland already passed such a bill in 2009.
