How can I get my picture removed from a dating site?

  1. Find as many copies (URL's) and versions as you can. It can be a tough and difficult process but you are the best person to identify this content. Often it will be edited or altered in some way and therefore you can identify it the quickest. Make a list. Like a weed, if you can get at the source you can stop it from spreading. Often only one website was the source of the uploaded picture or video. It is important to get it removed from there and move on to the other sites, if there are any.
  2. Note: DMCA.com does provide a professional service to locate copies of your photos for takedown. When completing your takedown notice form on the site make sure and request a quote for this service should you prefer.
    1. DO NOT assume that once your photo or video is off one website the issue is resolved. It could have been copied and uploaded somewhere else. The longer the content has been up the more likely it has spread to other networks and websites.
  3. Do not become a victim of extortion! Do not send money or a picture of your ID to hosting companies or website owners in order to get your content removed. This is a serious act of privacy violation and not required within any takedown process, anywhere. If you must pay to have your content taken offline it is extortion or a bribe under most laws. If you must pay or follow some other bizarre process to have your content taken offline do so with a lawyer, inform the police and where possible have an internet specialist with you.
