Cracking down on "Revenge Porn"

The government is taking new measures to crack down on revenge porn - protecting women and girls and putting abusers and predators in prison for longer.

  • The unsolicited sharing of intimate photos has a devastating effect on victims, so we must do more to crack down on this abhorrent practice.
  • So the government has announced today a raft of new measures to crack down on so-called "revenge porn," including removing the need to prove a distressing effect on victims, making manipulated ‘deep fake’ images and videos illegal, and ensuring that those who intend to cause distress or humiliation to victims spend up to two years in prison and are put on the sex offenders register.
  • These changes will give police and prosecutors the powers they need to bring these cowards to justice, safeguarding women and girls from such vile abuse.
