The practice of revealing another persons personal information on the Internet. It is often done as revenge by ex-lovers who post nude images of their former lover online.
When her ex-lover doxxed her on a porn website he was not really thinking of the fact that she was a minor at the time the pictures of them were taken in compromising positions. But he had a lot of time later to think about it in jail after her parents had charges brought against him for statutory rape, and distributing nude pictures of a minor.
