Deepsukebe nonconsensual nudification

August 2021
Updated: December 2021

UK member of parliament Maria Miller and others are calling for a ban on Deepsukebe, an app that creates nonconsensual pornography by removing non-nude clothing using deepfake technology.

Launched in 2020, Deepsukebe has reputedly garnered millions of visits and has hundreds of thousands of images uploaded to it. A number of celebrities, including an Olympic athlete, are among those who appear to have been nudified.

In December 2021, WIRED reported that the site has launched a partner programme that appears designed to avoid the service being taken offline.

It remains unclear who is behind Deepsukebe.
