Many people come to regret the images they post to Facebook. Help is at hand for anyone who has ever forgotten about embarrassing images they posted to a social network or website.

Once this date has passed the key stops the images being viewed and copied. Creators plan to levy a small charge to use the tagging system and put a digital lock on digital pictures.
