How We Removed Revenge Porn and Gathered Evidence for the Police



In late July 2020, we were contacted by a woman we will call “X” for privacy reasons. Her ex-husband had posted five different private sex videos of them on Pornhub. She had received multiple texts from her ex-husband with the videos to ruin her life. Both are U.S. residents.

Within hours of her first contact, we started gathering and securing evidence for law enforcement and removing the videos from Pornhub.

We consulted “X” and told her that she had to contact her local police department and report the crime. There is no question about this; this is a severe criminal offense and should always be reported to the Police for criminal prosecution.

After approximately one hour, we secured all the evidence needed for the Police to pursue this criminal offense actively. We cannot go into what we did and how we did it due to safety and privacy concerns.

We contacted Pornhub within a few hours, and all videos of “X” and her ex-husband had been deleted from their servers within 10 hours. We could also digitally fingerprint the videos with Vobile – a video protection system that blocks future uploads of videos on multiple video hosting platforms, like Pornhub.

The videos have been removed, and the evidence has been collected for use by law enforcement—all within 10 hours since we received the urgent request for help.

We will prioritize these cases in the future as we see them as the most severe and devastating problems we can handle swiftly. These offenses have severe ramifications for their victims, who are often clueless about how to move forward.

Review from our client “X”:

I am very grateful for hacked.com’s customer service in my time of despair. They got back to me right away and got the videos off within hours. Nobody ever expects to be degraded or shamed due to revenge porn after a break up. These videos were done privately and NEVER were meant for the public. I suggest getting the help you need quickly if something like this happens to you or a friend. You are a victim. Thank you again for your help. “X”

What to do if you are a victim of Revenge Porn

Do not be ashamed. Too often, victims of revenge porn are too embarrassed or afraid of getting help. They might fear that if they ask for help, they help spread unwanted material on the web.

Here’s what you should do if you are a victim of revenge porn:

  1. Contact your local police department. In most countries, it is illegal to spread the sexual content of another person without full consent.
  2. Take our free course on how you can eliminate and remove revenge porn.
  3. Contact us to help speed up the removal process.

Rest assured, the content can be removed from the web. There are multiple ways of eliminating such content from websites and social media. Do not be ashamed, and do not lose hope. We will always prioritize helping you and still keep your identity hidden. Privacy is of great concern to us.

Best regards,
