Hong Kong’s Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data has received 683 complaints of “doxing” and has transferred 608 of those cases to the police for further investigation, the South China Morning Post reports. The PCPD began receiving complaints when the extradition bill protests began in June. The primary targets are government officials and police officers, whose personal information was posted to social media without their consent. The PCPD requested the platforms remove 872 instances of leaked data, and to date, 474 have been removed.
