If your social media account gets hacked, this is a form of online abuse and you can report it to various authorities. You can report online abuse in any of the following ways:
Approaching the Police Station
You can go to the police station to complain about a case of hacking. Normally, you will have to file an FIR at the police station where you give all the information you know about the abuse that you have faced.
Apart from approaching the police, you have various options to complain about hacking.
Cyber Cells are present in every State, and these cells will look into and help you out in cases of online violence such as online stalking, hacking, etc. In many States, you can file a complaint online through your State’s Cyber Cell website.
Online Crime Reporting Portal
You can also lodge a complaint by using the Ministry of Home Affairs’ Online Crime Reporting Portal. You may be redirected to a specific State Government’s website to register a complaint.
Register a complaint in the section “Services for Citizen”, and click on “Report a Cyber Crime”. Here, you can provide information about the offender, the victim, and the incident along with any supporting evidence, such as screenshots. You can report anonymously or with identification, and you can track your complaint as well.
Cyber Crime Reporting Portal
You can also directly file a complaint on the Cyber Crime Reporting Portal. Complaints can be made anonymously. You can complain against various cybercrimes by selecting the option ‘‘Report Cyber Crime Related to Women/Child’’ or ‘‘Report Other Cyber Crime’’. You must login and create an account, and select “Report and Track” if you wish to track your complaint.
