If a person is not cautious while uploading such photos with his spouse or partner, Cybercriminals may morph those photos and sometimes upload in different porn websites out of revenge.
Maharashtra Police inspector (PI) Jayram Paygude of the cybercrime cell said that people should take precautionary measures while uploading their personal information on the social media sites because thousands of people especially women fall prey to cyber crime.
