Doxing and pornography

Doxing happens when someone has gathered your private information and published it online. It could be anything that includes any identifying information about you such as name, old name, stage name, username, address, social security number, financial details, images, videos, medical information, sexual orientation, membership details, national insurance, work details and so on. The published information might not all be completely true but it has to be identifying of yourself.

It could be previously unknown information. In the context of pornography, doxing often begins after you send someone nude images of yours or if you have been filmed without your consent, naked or during a sex act. The person who has acquired your nude images might be someone you know or someone you have dated one time or for a long period of time. Often it would be someone who you had a one-night fling with after getting a bit drunk.

Where is doxing published

There are websites that are dedicated to doxing which start with nude images of the victim. The users of those websites then go an a “hunt” to see who can first obtain personal information that belong to the victim and attach it to the nude images. The idea is to cause as much upset and embarrassment to the victim. The information published could be private in the extreme and might include details and images of the victim’s family members, their personal addresses, details of children, parents and spouses, together with their private information.

This type of nude doxing often causes havoc in the victim’s personal life. The victim has to now deal with having their infidelity being discovered but also with having images and private information about them and their family being posted on the internet.

How doxing information is collected

Personal information about yourself is easy to get on the internet. If you have visited a site and submitted information about yourself, unfortunately, this is where a lot of information is stored. It could be a forum, webcam site, social media platform, dating site, blog, gaming channel, shopping site and so on.

Is Doxing against the law 

Whilst doxing is not a specific crime, the activities involved when committing doxing might be criminal. Inevitably, doxing is intended to cause harassment and distress to the victim so it might be considered harassment under the Protection from Harassment Act. Publishing someone’s nude or intimate image without their consent is also known as Revenge Porn, which is a separate criminal offence.

If the information which is published about the victim is false or defamatory, this might give rise for the victim to sue for defamation and for malicious falsehood. Portraying the victim of doxing as a whore, as often happens on doxing websites, would normally be considered as defamation.

Doxing is also a violation of privacy of the victim and members of their family and there are different legal claims that the victim and their family can bring. The most obvious legal claims might be for breach of privacy and for the Misuse of private information. Breach of confidence might also be added to a claim, particularly if doxing involved publication of an act on infidelity.

Who commits doxing

Usually the people who get involved with doxing are otherwise normative individuals. Doxing gives them a sense of power and control, which otherwise is missing form their lives. The ability to play God over someone’s’ life, and to then be able to justify it on high moral grounds drives otherwise normative people to take part in doxing. We have found that people who are involved in doxing tend to have jobs, families and even own businesses. Doxing is their little secret, the something they do out of hours, which give them a strange form of mental and sometimes sexual gratification. Doxing sometimes starts as a revenge activity by people known to victims and who know intimate details about the victim’s life.
