“If you must send intimate images, consider using a one-view feature or obscuring your face or any other identifiable features,” Hundeyin tweeted. He drew attention to the fact that video calls can be screen-captured or recorded, which could lead to the unauthorized recording of intimate moments without the consent of those involved.

Furthermore, SP Hundeyin expressed his deep concern regarding the increasing number of individuals, including public figures, who have approached him after falling victim to blackmail and extortion schemes involving their explicit content.

His message reminds everyone to exercise caution and protect themselves when engaging in such online interactions.
