Individuals affiliated with ClothOff revealed – media

Individuals potentially linked to the app ClothOff, which has aided in the generation of nonconsensual deepfake pornography, have been named in a recent investigation.

A recent investigation by The Guardian revealed the names of two individuals associated with the app ClothOff.

Approximately four million monthly users visit the app ClothOff, allowing individuals to “undress any photo with AI.”

The app has successfully created nonconsensual pornography of minors, as evidenced by two examples that the Guardian provided.

Both incidents demonstrate the app's shocking ability to transform an image of a fully clothed child into a nude photo.

Nonconsensual deepfake pornography is occurring all over the world and has devastating consequences on the mental health of the victims.

At the core of these issues, which occurred in Spain and New Jersey, was the app ClothOff, according to The Guardian.

Despite their attempts to remain anonymous, The Guardian has identified two individuals who they believe are linked to ClothOff.

During its six-month investigation, the news outlet identified Dasha Babicheva and Alaiksandr Babichau – allegedly a brother and sister duo – with ties to ClothOff.

Babicheva has supposedly conducted business on ClothOff’s behalf, whereas Babichau has websites and accounts that are affiliated with the company.

Furthermore, separate entities have alleged ties with ClothOff, including Russian videogame marketplace GGSel and a London-based company known as GG Technology.

When the Guardian reached out to the siblings, Babicheva declined to comment, and Babichau denied involvement in activities related to ClothOff and GGSel.

Deepfake pornography epidemic

There were almost 280,000 clearnet synthetic, non-consensual exploitative videos in 2023, as per ‘The State of Deepfakes and the exponential rise of nonconsensual synthetic adult content in 2023,' by Genevive Oh.

The duration of these videos was 1249 days, and the number of views amounted to over 4.2 billion, the report states.

Furthermore, the number of video hours posted on leading deepfake NCEI websites jumped from 9,300 to nearly 14,000.

This harmful trend has demonstrated far-reaching adverse effects on individuals and the industry as a whole.
