My fiancé and I took some private photos with NO intention of ANYONE else seeing them. My fiancé daughter wants to post them!!

Asked 12 months ago - Iowa City, IA

My fiancé lent his laptop to his 18 year old daughter and thought he had erased all photos. Apparently his daughter found them and threatened to post them as well as send them to family and friends via email or text. What can I do????
