A: If your ex-wife is using the "Shop app" to track shipments to your new address, it's important to address this privacy concern. Firstly, contact the app's customer service to explain the situation and request that they stop sharing your shipping information. They may have protocols for handling such privacy breaches.

Regarding legal action, it's wise to consult with a lawyer to discuss the specifics of your situation. Privacy laws can vary, and a legal professional can offer guidance on whether you have grounds for a lawsuit against the app or your ex-wife for this invasion of privacy.

Remember, taking proactive steps to safeguard your personal information is crucial in digital spaces. Regularly updating your privacy settings and being cautious about where you share your address can help prevent similar situations in the future.
