This is an image hosting platform to temporary and securely share your images. Most people would find it hard to download your images. And even if they do, they would have their IP address on them. You can still disable all the security features and use it as a simple image hosting, if you wish.
Assuming that you want to securely share an image (or several) with somebody:
These is the IP address of the person, who viewed the image. Every time the image is sent to a person's browser, they get watermarked with this person's IP address. This is done so that even if the image is downloaded it's less likely to be be shared further. And if it would the person who did that would be easy to find.
Sure, each album has a setting section that you can access if you uploaded these images. You can find it if you click on the orange ribbon in the top of album page.
This QR code contains information about the image. It contains a unique image id, image upload timestamp and an encrypted IP of the image uploader.
No. Uploader's IPs are encrypted with AES encryption. Only Unsee can decrypt the encoded values back.
This is a measure against site abusers, who upload illegal photos and/or harass other people. If such an act is reported to a law enforcement they might reach out and demand to disclose the IP of the uploader.
Unfortunately you can not switch this functionality off. Normal usage of the site should by no means be affected by this. Your personal data is still owned by you only.
You can send us a short notice about this and we will quickly delete the album. But this would be a temporary measure. You can also report this to the police to try and stop this from happening in the future.
What you do need to know, though, is that in most of the cases the person who uploaded the images knows you well. It could be your friend, ex or even a family member.
The albums on Unsee are very short lived. Meaning that there's no way to stumble upon an album by chance.
Usually it goes down like this:
Just click on the "Report" link in the top-right corner of the page. And send us a short notice about this.
Please make a screenshot of the photos in question with the QR code clearly visible and scannable. The QR code contains an encrypted uploader's IP address. With this you can reach out to your local law enforcement agency. In turn the agency will reach out to Unsee and ask the IP addresses to be decrypted.
In case you uploaded an illegal content or performed illegal actions on the site and this was brought to our attention you may be reported to relevant agencies by Unsee and you IP address might be disclosed to them on request.
