Hong Kong Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data Stephen Kai-yi Wong said new “doxing” cases have slowed down “a little bit” in recent months, the Hong Kong Free Press reports. Wong’s office has received approximately 4,700 reported doxing cases since June and requested the removal of personal data, primarily related to police officers, from 16 social media platforms. “We received fewer cases than before. But it doesn’t mean that we will stop our investigation efforts. We made great efforts in tracking down the doxxers and also requesting the social platforms to assist by pulling down all the messages, especially the messages that were incriminating,” he said.
