Trolling online is one thing, but Doxing is something entirely worse.
Doxing when someone searches for and publishes private or identifying information about a particular individual on the Internet, typically with malicious intent.
Google yourself. Put your first and last name in parenthesis then put the state. What do you come up with?
There are hundreds of Databroker companies out there that survive off mining public databases, collecting that data and making it readily available at the touch of a button. Doxing is becoming a common practice among populist and protesting movements.
Publishing your private information could open up you and your family to unprecedented dangers.
Business Executives, Public Figures, Public Officials are all to often become victim to their private information becoming public. A great deal of this information can be removed, though it isn’t easy. Depending on the state in which you are domiciled, you likely have the right to have your information taken down if requested. However, Databrokers don’t have to make it easy to navigate the process how.
