Stalking or harassment is extremely unpleasant and cruel behaviour that causes upset and distress. Sadly, the harasser may be an ex-partner. Social media now means that harassment can take many forms and your online safety is paramount. From hacked accounts to identity theft, from malicious use of your photos to direct threats, the law is able to help you in a number of ways.
Practically, make sure you restrict your social media posts to your friends, check your privacy settings on your social media accounts, don’t use the same password for everything and be aware of geolocation and tagging on social networking sites (and how to disable it on your devices).
If you are being harassed by your ex on social media and need advice as to what action you can take, then the experienced family law team at Mills & Reeve will be able to help you.
