Q: While I was in a relationship we shared a computer,separate profiles & passwords. Is the info. on my profile protected?
While dating I made an account on my boyfriend’s Mac computer. After the breakup he went into my profile to get my iMessages. Once inside my profile (on his computer), without my permission. he found sexual fantasy text messages and is threatening to send them to my parents or destroy my chances of getting into professional school. During the break up, December 2016, he’s threatened to cause emotional and mental damage to myself and friends. He threatened to kill me and to beat me. He is a medical doctor. He slammed me against the wall. I have death threats and threats of emotional abuse and real physical abuse recorded on voice recordings, that he admired to on the recording. He committed bank fraud and sign his ex up for a bank loan using the his old ex’s social security number he did this to lower his ex’s credit score. He held a loaded gun in my face. I saw him “beat” his dui probation drug tests using prepared urine. I fear for my life. I filed a VPO, but events are a year old.
A: It is not, however you should contact the other party to advise they have no consent to access your private accounts. You should also seek to protect those accounts. Should those accounts be accessed, it can constitute an illegal “hacking,” and you should file a police report immediately.
