Posting personal information can be used against you in a divorce proceeding, such as if you post information about your estranged spouse on sites like DatingPsychos.com, yet this happens all the time, according to Palko.

“If it’s constant release of information or putting someone in danger you can certainly contact the police,” Palko said.

If it happens during a divorce, your divorce attorney can help you get that information removed. If not, you will have to file a civil action, which can be complicated and pricey. You can also contact the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
