It seems that Instagram’s no nudity policy is getting violated at will. The site has become a storage box for millions of hardcore porn videos hidden under Arabic hashtags.

Recently a tech blogger and hacker, Jed Ismael claimed that he has come across porn videos while searching for hashtags with the Arabic word for movies. He further claims to have found over one million sex films on the site.

Instagram users are able to find a loophole around the no nudity policy by using non-English terms or hashtags. He wrote, “I came across this discovery by searching for the hashtag “افلام” which means movies in Arabic,”

In his blog post, he further indicates that these pornographic videos requires no age verification and can be viewed by almost anyone.

“Of course, 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,” he writes.

Jed Ismael also credits himself for founding another set of porn videos on YouTube about two months ago. The videos on YouTube were posted using the “Hungarian” language.

In recent years, the porn industry has been on a rise by leveraging technology. According to some reports, the porn industry is further upgrading itself and is going beyond 3D and mobile viewing to the feeling of being there, hinting at Virtual Reality.
