What is the impact of revenge porn on the victim

If you are a victim of revenge porn, it is likely that you are feeling violated and devastated. In most cases, revenge porn is not limited to sharing of images and videos online or by text as a one off event. Revenge porn could easily be escalated, where your image or video is shared on multiple websites and phone devices and being linked and shared and tagged by people you know and by strangers.

What to do if you are victim of revenge porn

You should report revenge porn to the police. You may have told the police already at your local police station many times but you may feel that the police are not doing enough and certainly not fast enough.

If you want images and videos which have been posted as part of a revenge porn campaign to be taken down from the internet before anyone else that you are close to or strangers, see them, you will need to speak to a specialist internet law solicitor who will help you take down the private images and videos instantly. The solicitor will then deal with any other issues such as bringing the offenders to justice.
