To begin with, we will be facing an optional protection, so it is you who must choose if you want to activate the protection against nudity or not. The app will the detection of this type of content on the mobile itself, without being sent to the Instagram servers for analysis. In case there is a possibility that it is a nude, the photo will not be visible at first.

Instagram will hide photos that have possible nudity from you, but always you can choose to show them anyway probably after you play in the blurry preview, maybe with some kind of blurring or warning.
For now we do not know if this protection can be activated for all chats or separately for each chat, but it is indicated that it will be possible easily turn it on or off from settings. Of course, we still do not know when this protection will be available, since Instagram has not yet officially announced it.
