What is cyberstalking?

Cyberstalking is a form of online harassment where someone repeatedly uses digital platforms to intimidate, threaten, or monitor another individual without their consent. 

Here are some actions that can lead to cyberstalking:

Excessive Messaging: Sending numerous unwanted messages via email, social media, or other online platforms, often with the intention of intimidating or harassing the recipient.

Monitoring Online Activity: Constantly monitoring the victim’s online presence, including their social media accounts, browsing history, and location check-ins, to gather information or intimidate them.

Creating Fake Profiles: Creating fake social media profiles or impersonating the victim online to gather personal information, tarnish their reputation, or manipulate their online interactions.

Threats and Intimidation: Sending threatening or intimidating messages, comments, or emails to instill fear or coerce the victim into compliance.

Stalking in Real Life: Using information obtained online to physically stalk or monitor the victim’s movements in real life, such as showing up uninvited at their home or workplace.

Harassment Campaigns: Organizing or participating in coordinated harassment campaigns against the victim, including spreading rumors, sharing personal information, or inciting others to target them online.

Spyware and Hacking: Installing spyware or hacking into the victim’s devices or accounts to monitor their activities, access personal information, or control their online interactions without their knowledge or consent.

These behaviors can lead to severe emotional distress, invasion of privacy, and even physical harm to the victim, making cyberstalking a serious and punishable offense in many jurisdictions.
