Pictures Falling Into The Wrong Hands HELP! UPDATE

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Last night a man got hold of my phone and sent himself my personal pictures that were meant for SO.  This man is a close family friend and the same age as my parents.  He is also a regular customer at the bar I work at.  I've always trusted him up until last night.  I left my phone at the table where other family friends were sitting including my sister's MIL while I was dancing.  I never in my wildest dreams thought something like this would happen.   I haven't told anyone because I'm scared how it will effect relationships.  I feel violated, embarrassed, ashamed.  I'm so pissed at myself for being so stupid.  What do I do?

update:  I talked to SO.  I told him what happened and why I hadn't told him right away.  He said that I had nothing to be ashamed of and that he completely understood why I handled the situation like I did.  He just held me, let me cry and said everything would be ok.

I'm so sorry that happened but to prevent this from ever happening again look up a app that's called keepsafe its a locked app that is password protected so no one can see anything you want to hide. I'm glad ur hubby understood.

That's why I use photovault, I lock my phone and don't leave.it just anywhere.

That sucks, what a disgusting old man. This is why i have always refused to take pictures or videos of myself.

  This is why I would never get those types of pictures done.  Well that it the idea of doing that never appealed to me.

  Your SO was good to you, I am glad that at least he was able to give you some comfort in this situation.  I am sure that helped a little.
