A CHINESE tech whizz claims to have built an app that lets sickos check if their girlfriends have ever acted in porn.

The tool has supposedly linked 100,000 adult stars past and present to their real-life Facebook and Instagram profiles in a bid to “expose” them.

It was built by cross-referencing faces in thousands of porn videos with online profile pictures.

The app’s creator, a Germany-based programmer who posted his claims to Weibo under the name BuriedInMemory, said in his original post that he hopes to help others find out if their girlfriends have ever been in an adult film.

He’s promised to stream a live Q&A on the Chinese video-streaming platform Douyu at 2pm BST, sources told The Sun.

He will be sharing his computer screen rather than showing his face.

BuriedInMemory has yet to prove his tool exists, and has not promised to show it in action during his livestream.

In his Weibo post, the data geek said he and an unnamed team spent six months building the facial recognition tool.

It uses over 100 terabytes of video data pulled from popular sites including Pornhub, 91, 1024, sex8, and xvideos.

For legal reasons, he said he’s not letting anyone access the huge database just yet, and may have to “anonymise the data” to avoid criminal charges.

He also said he’s open to the idea of doing a version for male porn stars.

Written in Mandarin, BuriedInMemory’s post went viral on Twitter this week when it was translated by Yale University student, Yiqin Fu.

He’s received widespread criticism, with some branding him a “creep”.

“This is disgusting and terrifying,” one Twitter user wrote.

Another said: “This is going to get people blackmailed, assaulted, or killed.”

One quipped: “You know, this kind of thing might be useful for finding victims of trafficking or other sexual exploitation, but nooo, techbros want it to snoop on their potential partners’ past.”

In response to the backlash, BuriedInMemory has changed his tune.

He told SexTechGuide that the tool was actually intended for use as a facial recognition algorithm to find and remove revenge porn.

The sick trend sees ex-partners humiliating their former lovers by uploading explicit images or video of them without permission.

According to BuriedInMemory, the database was actually built by someone else, and he was simply using it to build an anti-revenge porn tool.

He claimed he never intended to publicly release the private data.

The programmer has deleted his Weibo posts.
