International Women's Day

What is doxxing, and how does it endanger women?

Have you heard of doxxing? If you’re a woman on the internet, you might have experienced it. Doxxing means publicly releasing someone’s personal information online, like their address or intimate photos, without their consent.

This International Women’s Day, we’re telling platforms like Telegram, Twitch, and Meta (Facebook) — which make doxxing easy and rewarding — to take women’s safety seriously. It’s up to all of us to build a safer internet — and world — for everyone.

The burden shouldn’t be on women and other marginalized groups to fight against doxxing. But check out our Self-Doxxing Guide to learn more about how you can protect yourself.
