Revenge Porn

Revenge porn is when someone shares sexual/explicit images or videos of someone else, without their knowledge or consent.

This can be particularly distressing for the victim, due to the humiliation and violation of privacy that people often feel.

What to do if you become the victim of revenge porn

If you have become the victim of revenge porn, it is important to understand this is not your fault – it is the fault of the offender.

If you feel comfortable, report the crime to the police as soon as you can – they will be able to advise you on the next steps you should take. You can also call the revenge porn helpline on 0845 6000 459.

If you have seen images or videos of yourself online, contact the website they have appeared on and ask them to be deleted. Before you do this, take a picture or screenshot of where they have appeared and the account that posted them, so this can be used as evidence.
