Image based abuse

Discover resources and support to help either yourself or someone you know who is experiencing image based abuse or “revenge porn”.

Image based abuse

Image based abuse

“‘Revenge porn’ or image-based abuse is when someone shares, or threatens to share, an intimate photo or video of you without your consent. It’s still image-based abuse if it’s a screenshot or recording of a live chat (sometimes known as capping), or a meme, or even a fake or deep fake that has been edited to look like you. Image-based abuse is never OK, and if it’s happened to you it’s not your fault.” – eSafety Excerpt 2024 

You can report image-based abuse and get help.
