Revenge Porn

Revenge porn’ is the posting of nude or sexually explicit photographs or videos online without consent, even if the photograph itself was taken with consent.
Content is often uploaded by ex-partners, friends or even strangers with an intention to shame or embarrass an individual, linking content to the person’s other online content, such as Facebook, LinkedIn or even work websites, along with personal information including addresses and telephone numbers. Sometimes this content is also directed at family members to cause maximum harm to the victim.

Getting images removed:

Most websites take Revenge Porn very seriously and take down the images. Report all images that are harming you and look into websites terms and conditions to ensure removal. Some websites may charge, contact the Revenge Porn website below.

Coping if this happens:

You are not to blame. Just because you took some pictures/allowed someone else to take them does not mean that it is your fault that you are in this situation now. Images like this may take a long time before they are removed. Get some support if you need it.

Be in control:

Ensure that you have got control in your life and keep yourself safe mentally, physically and emotionally. Report all websites that take and share your image.

Remember that you have options:
