Are you clicking nude selfies? That is fine and not any criminal act, but this act can land you in trouble — here’s how!
Almost three years after a wave of private photographs of celebrities leaked online, “The Fappening 2.0” appears to be underway with the circulation of alleged naked pictures of female celebrities, including Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried on Reddit and 4chan.
Back in 2014, anonymous hackers flooded the Internet with private photographs of major celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence, Kim Kardashian, Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst by hacking thousands of Apple’s iCloud accounts.
The Fappening hackers have since been sent to prison.

However, in the latest leak, which has been heralded online as “The Fappening 2.0,” the personal photographs of Amanda Seyfried and Emma Watson — ranging from regular selfies to explicitly sexual photos — have been leaking online since Tuesday night.
According to a screenshot from an original 4chan thread, unknown hackers will be posting more intimate photos of female celebrities, including Kylie Jenner, Marisa Tomei, Jennifer Lawrence and several others, over the next few days, which indicates it’s just the beginning of The Fappening 2.0.
The affected celebrities did not immediately comment on the invasion of any privacy on their side, but the photographs appear to be authentic.
A representative for Watson has also confirmed that she is taking legal action against the latest leak and that some of the images circulating online are legitimate, saying:
“Photos from a clothes fitting Emma Watson had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen. They are not nude photographs. Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further.”
While, leaked images of Watson show the actor posing in various swimsuits and outfits in front of a mirror, the alleged photos of actors Amanda Seyfried and Jillian Murray are much more explicit, appearing to show the stars nude and, in some images, engaging in sexual activity.
There are also pictures and videos that the leaker claims to be of Watson filming herself naked in the bathtub, while another showing her masturbating. But since the face of the woman in the shots can not be seen, this can’t be confirmed.
