Hello, my boyfriend’s ex took screenshots of my pictures from Instagram. My profile was not private at that time . She sent pictures of me to my boyfriend’s mother and brother and she still has them on her cellphone . One of the pictures is of me on a stripper pole ( just a fun night out ) , that she texted to my boyfriend’s mother to put me under a bad light . Is there anything I can do ?
Once you post a picture in a public forum you have no expectation of privacy in the photo.
