Picaboo: How to send naughty photos without getting caught

This week a number of sneaky publications published some rather NSFW photos (allegedly) of the lovely Scarlett Johansson. Now it’s not been confirmed yet how they got their hands on the images, with some suggesting her phone had been hacked and others claiming the lucky recipient passed them on.

However, regardless of how Scarlett’s personal bank of naughty shots got into the public domain, there’s no denying this is becoming a bit of an issue among hot celebrity women nowadays. Only a few months ago similar photos surfaced that looked very much like Blake Lively, something her reps still seem to be denying.

So what’s the solution?

Obviously it can’t be that these celebrities just STOP taking photos of themselves, they’re pretty, rich and live in Hollywood, of course they need other people to see their nakedness. So we think we may have found something that’ll help them send these photos without getting caught instead.

The Picaboo app allows you to send photos to your contacts, but you control how long they see them for. So, to be safe, simply take a photo of yourself (with or without clothes, your choice) and set the timer to five seconds. The photo will then be sent to the contact of your choice but once they’ve looked at it for five seconds it will then disappear FOREVER.

Now we’re not suggesting you use it for sending NSFW photos. In fact we don’t want to tarnish Picaboo, it could be a completely innocent and cute way to send photos to your friends and family. BUT if you just have to get your kit off and take pictures, this is probably the safest way to do it, but don’t send these ones to your friends and family, obvs.

Oh and don’t come running to us if a tabloid publishes images of your bits and pieces over the weekend, the safest way to stop them getting into the wrong hands would be NOT TO TAKE THEM.

Picaboo is available from iTunes for Free.

    what about a smart phones capability to take screen shots?

    Good point, although I imagine if you’re using it to send naked photos the last thing the recipient is going to think for the 3 seconds it’s on screen is about taking a screenshot…

    We notify the sender if the recipient tries to take a screenshot :)
