It's quite an unusual request: Facebook is asking for your naked photos.

The Verge reported the social media giant is testing a program in Australia that can "digitally tag uploading photos or videos to prevent future uploading" -- all part of an effort to combat the growing trend of revenge porn.

Facebook officials say users can upload their photos or video directly to them, and then a special algorithm will help keep track of the uploaded and shared media via a digital footprint.

The company added they will not store the pictures, but some forensics experts believe there is still a risk of hackers gaining access to the photos.
