Help For Revenge Porn Victims

Help For Revenge Porn Victims

Revenge porn, or involuntary porn, is a growing problem in our always on, always online lives. Few things are as traumatizing as finding out that photos or video that were shared privately, or taken without the victim’s knowledge, have found their way online and are now public.

Social media and the rise in smartphones and apps that enable photo messaging are contributing to the growth of revenge porn, and “private” apps like Snapchat have been revealed to have a number of design flaws or available hacks that degrade the stated “privacy” they offer.

Once a victim’s private pictures are found online, it can be a daunting task to find out how many pictures are out there and where they are located. ThirdParent offers a custom solution to make resolving your issue as efficient as possible

In addition to solutions offered by ThirdParent for revenge porn victims, there are other resources available.
