Each day, people are horrified to find content they've created by themselves, with friends or with partners has leaked across the Internet. Many victims find their trust and even sexual privacy has been betrayed by vengeful exes or malicious hackers, and that they are now being targeted with embarrassing results appearing under searches for their name.
We understand the very real impact on your reputation, educational opportunities and job prospects that can result from:
Embarrassing photos, sometimes taken without consent, and distributed on social media and sharing sites.
Private videos, typically made by a couple and then published on amateur sites by a vindictive ex.
Intimate images including nudes, often made for partners or dating apps or stolen from phones.
