It's without a doubt against the law to post or share nude photos of people without their consent. If it's someone you know, let him know it's not okay and is against the law and that you will report him to the local police if he made good on his threat. But, if it is someone you don't know, don't even bother responding. Take screenshots of the threats and the account involved as proof of evidence in case you decide to file a police report and block him.

Sadly it's not always the case. I don't think all states and countries have made it illegal to do that. Revenge porn is what many call it. It should be illegal everywhere, because once something is released online, there's no stopping it. 

Your best bet, is to report it to the police, every site you find your nude photos on and report any accounts releasing it. Keep records of each username that released anything.

First, i will confirm whether it is true he really has the photos. If yes, since i cannot just expose myself indecently, it will mean he obtained the photos illegally. I will report him or her. Since they are just being malicious, i may not be in control of whether or not he shares even if i submit to his demand. 

So the best thing is to report the illegality to the authorities to handle.

Stay calm and don't give in to his threats. Threatening to post or share nude photos or videos without someone`s consent is against the law. What you can do is block his account, after taking screenshots like Avyanna mentioned to halt further contact.

I will advise you to review your privacy settings to give you full control of who can see your online information.

If you put yourself in a position to share these pictures, you have to accept the responsibility of the consequences should they arise. That being said, it is against the law as mentioned and I think it is worth addressing this with local officials, especially if you are under the legal age of consent.

Talk to someone you trust with your heart and report to your local police if things get out of hand.

You got to stay smart online. Never give in to anyone especially people you met online asking you to send your nude photos, money, or whatnot. Scammers are extra good at sweet talking their victims to cave in to their demands. Block him, end of story.

I will take it he`s asking you to send him money or else he will share your nude photos?

Like others have said, don’t cave in, because If you give a scammer an inch, he will take a mile.

It`s just an empty threat to break you down, as they don’t usually follow through. Block him and review your privacy settings.
