5 Steps to Immediately take if your nudes are being used to Blackmail YOU.

Rachiyta JainCyber Security, Law81 Comments

Sharing nude pictures over WhatsApp, iMessage and other sorts of messengers has become a pretty common activity across age groups today. What ordinarily follows these temporary (thought of as permanent) relationships is revenge porn which is the reason behind so many giving up and committing suicides. The pictures which were then shared voluntarily are now used to blackmail. If you or your loved one is a victim of such a crime please do not feel pathetic about yourself because people are there to help, you just need to ask for it. Please be bold and take the following steps:

1. Do not delete the message

If you are one of those who goes on like this :

STOP.! These messages are a very important source of evidence. By deleting these messages, you are destroying evidence.

2. Take a screen shot.

Often the accused uses fake accounts to blackmail the victim. In some cases, after the account is deactivated the chats are not visible as well. That is why it is best to take a screenshot as soon as you receive such messages. These screenshots are also helpful when filing complaints or gathering preliminary data for investigation. The screenshot should capture the time stamp along with the message.

3. Get Expert Help

File an FIR or contact the woman helpline service quickly. Often people don’t approach such services because of the fear of giving out these images or lack of adult help. Rest assured, these people are experts and they receive such complaints every day. Your photos will be dealt with confidentially.

4. Do not give in to the blackmailer’s demand

No matter what the blackmailer says, do not give in to his demands because there is no assurance that he will stop. The only word you need to understand is ‘consent’. If you don’t wish to give it, don’t be forced to.

You will just make him feel more powerful and provide him more material to blackmail you further.

5. Talk to a friend, family member or us

Give voice to your pain and talk things out with someone. You will be amazed by the amount of weight that lifts off your chest. You can also reach out to us on +91-7832085146 and we;ll try our best to help you.

In any such case, your photos in these situations are dealt with on case to case basis. This is not a legal advice. If your photos are already shared on WhatsApp, a pornographic website, Facebook or any other platform, it best you contact the police with adult help as soon as possible. If you are a parent reading this post, please support your child to take an action. The post has been made light for the audience to understand with ease.  Such cases should be held earnestly.

    1. Hi Hannah,

      You must talk about this with your parents or an adult whom you trust. Along with this, this incident must be reported to the police authorities so that the accused can be put behind bars.

  6. SIr I am a teen ager and i am aged 17 and i am from India and i have some serious situations about my friend…the main topic is my friend named Subham is in a really big trouble and I don’t want my best friend to get in this big trouble….4 years back mybest friend had made a friend ship with an woman and had chatted with her and this woman was from Pakistan;according to my friend’s chat… and day by day their friend ship grew nearer and suddenly one day she asked my friend to share a naked pic of him and he stupidly gave her some three or four naked pics of him…but later then he unfriended her as he felt that it’sall insane and he felt like he is cheating his family and friends…..and after 2 years of this tragedy the Same woman requestedhim on his fb id and this time she had changed her name and send him his naked pics…at the time he again remembered the tragedy which was related with him 2 years ago….and then the lady blackmailed him for a blowjob and he denied this all then she threatened him that she would share this pics with his friends….but he blocked her and in surprise was that he came to know that…she was no lady but a third sex person from Pakistan,….who wanted him for a vulgar use….and then the person made a fake id of my friend using his profile picture and send friend requests to all our friends… and all did accepted his(the third sex person ) friend request and after accepting his request he started to send his pics to all our friends and all friends did informed Subham and him that is this all real and he as he was feeling really shy he regretted and requested all our friends to keep this matter between our friends…and the trouble was solved as we all reported the fake account on fb and the matter did all solved and a matter of fact is that Subham said that what ever the person wanted to do with his photos but he won’t do this vulgar things at all costs and subham blocked him….
    BUt now as we know that a enemity with a close friend is more dangerous than enemity with a fatal enemy…..so one of our friends named Sadanand has these naked pics of subham and he is blackmailing Subham cause one year before Sadanand’s pics with his girlfriend in room was leaked by one of our friends but we don’t know him/ her as the pic was taken by a girl who is our friend and now Sadanand has some miss understanding with Subham cause he always visited to the girl’s house in study matters or her parents were inviting Subham to their house as the girl is a child hood friend of Subham and bothof their families are likely friends and know eeach other since their childhood and Sadanand is now thinking that Subham has done this all with her help and so Sadanand is threatening Subham that if he doesn’t proves his innocency in this case and if he will out the real criminal then he wil publish all those pics in media…..and we two are afraid to inform this all tragedy to our parents..,cause if i inform to my parents then the character of my best friend will be down and i don’t want it at any costs aan not only that mg parents won’t allow me to be friends with him again if they wil come to know this all…..and if this all will cometo know to Subham’s parents then he will be dead….. sir i want to save my friends life and his character without harming our parents sentiments and without their knowing of tjis all…..and i want the other friend to be punished well cause if he would be our real friend then he wouldn’t do that type of shame less things and not only that all ourfriends are well concerned with yhis all tragedies but no one is coming forward for help leaving me…all are neglecting this……leaving me and as i have a good friend ship with Sadanand so i can’t abd my friend Subham also doesn’t want me to interfere in this trouble as he loves me a lot and doesn’t want to make me an enemy of Sadanand for his sake….
    So please sir i am humbly requesting you for some ways to get my friend to get rid of this trouble or we two are thinking to inform police about Sadanand…and his black mailing….
    So sir please can you tell me about the Indian laws of these types of situations and the penelty or fines or punishment withall the laws in a described manner…..
    Please Sir please save my friend….as you have helped all these persons above me and as you seemed me as an expert and kind so sir please help us a way out…….
    THANKS YOU SIR
