Now a day’s cyber security is becoming a big problem in society. This article is specifically for Pakistani People to raise cyber security awareness in them.
Dozens of people ask me daily about cyber security questions. Few days ago one of my friend ask me a question about being blackmailed on social media
What to do when we are being harassed by someone in internet?
My first response is always “Report in Pakistan cyber security cell” that’s why they are sitting there to listen to your complaints. They take 24 hours to register complain and they take about a week to catch that blackmailer, hacker or someone with fake profile.
Well now there are many kinds of harassment on internet. If somebody sent you a friend request on social media it is not harassment but you didn’t accept it and he/she keep sending it then it’s a part of harassment but you can’t complain on that. But if somebody blackmails you about it or anything than you can complain that easily. Now there are many ways to complain that in Pakistan. Let’s check them…
