Have you ever had someone on here basically cyber stalk you and threaten you?

I mean get your email, phone number, address and social media when you didn't give it to them and just honestly make you go offline for a while and just change numbers..? no just me ? cool :/

[@912138,OogieBoogie] It was scary! He posted on the threads if he couldn't have me no one could.
[@376166,silver1sil] it wasn't so much shitty as terrifying.

Having my friends and family threatened made me feel incredibly angry and scared.
silver1sil · 22-25, F
[@912138,OogieBoogie] I was hoping it wasn't to the degree of terrifying as I know how awful it can be! and I know I was so mad at myself for being vulnerable
[@376166,silver1sil] I never felt mad at myself.

I was furious at the fucked up nature of this person who got a kick outta trying to scare people from the safety of a keyboard.

It sux tho.

You never trust again do you ?

LadyJ · 41-45, F
[@376166,silver1sil] yes i thought he was someone i could trust, but turned out to be totally the opposite..i rarely show photos now or give too much away to people online
I dont think so.

[@376166,silver1sil] I'm not sure it happens much to guys.

[@376166,silver1sil] spot on way to describe it
silver1sil · 22-25, F
[@1148565,Frequencys] I had only felt that fragile and angry and scared once before and both times I felt so so alone
Signals · M
[@376166,silver1sil] I’m so sorry.. 😕
It’s a scary feeling beyond words
Elessar · 26-30, M
How could they steal email and phone no? I mean, there has either have to be a vulnerability on the site, or your password must've been guessed, I figure
Bushranger · 61-69, M
[@44863,Elessar] True, but I keep a backup of my most important files, especially my password database so that's not too much of an issue (and, no, it's not stored in the cloud but on two high quality USB sticks, one stored externally and the other carried with me all the time). The data in my password manager is also encrypted, so even if someone hacks my computer, they're going to have a very hard time getting my passwords. And this way I can use any web browser I want, not restricted to Firefox. But that's me, other's will have different ideas; each to their own 😊
Elessar · 26-30, M
[@764286,Bushranger] I used KeePassX in a similar fashion until migrating them all to Firefox myself 😌
Bushranger · 61-69, M
[@44863,Elessar] I used to have them on Firefox, now I use KeepassXC, LOL.
Never, thank God
No. How did they manage to get all that info? 🤔
SW User
Yup I have
XDHyperGirlXD1 · 26-30, F
[@428450,MaterialGirlCx] nobody allowed stalk and threaten you if they do I beat them up 😐
silver1sil · 22-25, F
[@428450,MaterialGirlCx] I am so sorry... I hope it NEVER happens again
Dragfan8200 · 36-40, M

Azlotto · M
I've never had a stalker, but someone did threaten to stab me.
silver1sil · 22-25, F
[@913049,Azlotto] that's awful.

Not really. I thought it was funny.
It happened to a good friend of mine from EP. She had to get the law enforcement and a cyber specialist involved. She was here for a little bit but no longer here.

I think it happens more often than not to a different degree.
TheDevilYouNeed · 51-55, M
No, it would be hard for them to get that info.
Becksta · 36-40
Nope... they're still salty because I blocked them almost a year ago now...
Virgo79 · 56-60, M
I'd invite them over🤨
But I'm a guy
That’s horrible. I’m sorry.
Montanaman · M
I hope that it's over, and never happens again 😔😕🤗🤗
So sorry to hear about that.
PepsiColaP · 22-25, F
BlueMetalChick · 26-30, F
Kinda, yeah, but it was years ago.
Be careful who you trust internet is full of crazies even crazy enough to kill remember the EP incident
JoeyFoxx · 51-55, M
This is the creepy shit that bugs me. Tho, it takes a lot for me to share anything remotely personal with folks I meet here.

I remember years ago warning someone I met online that she shared too many personal details about herself. By using free services, I found her address. I told her not to confirm if I got it right, but she thanked me.
