No judgment here, but if you have ever had private pictures taken then had a relationship go south, it could be quite scary. Unfortunately, with the prominence of social media "Image Based Abuse" or "Revenge Porn" is becoming a popular way to expose, degrade, embarrass and violate victims.  Not to mention your phone just might be hacked and those pictures could be made public without your permission.

In a attempt to stop private pictures from being posted before they hit social media Facebook and the Australian government agency e-Safety are requesting that you send yourself your nudes through Facebook Messenger.
