Privacy Commissioner’s Office Broadcasts TV Video and Radio Announcement on Doxxing Offences

The Personal Data (Privacy) (Amendment) Ordinance 2021 has come into effect to more effectively combat doxxing acts that are intrusive to personal data privacy. The maximum penalty for doxxing is a $1,000,000 fine and 5 years’ imprisonment.
 
To remind members of the public to think twice before reposting any doxxing messages on the internet or social media platforms, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD) has produced a TV video and radio announcement for broadcast on various TV and radio stations. The video and audio are also uploaded to the PCPD’s website and social media platforms.
