Publishing sexually explicit pictures of former partners is to be made a criminal offence - and could carry up to a two-year prison sentence.
It is known as revenge porn and involves uploading private images with the intention of embarrassing or shaming an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend.
The issue was brought into sharp focus after celebrities including pop stars Rihanna and Tulisa Contostavlos fell victim to the cruel craze.
In the last two and a half years 149 cases of revenge pornography were reported to eight police forces in England and Wales and figures reveal the victims include children as young as 11 .
An anonymous victim of revenge porn told Sky News: I felt humiliated, I was shocked that someone had stooped to that level to try and humiliate me because I didn t think that I had disrespected someone enough for them to do something like that to me.
It makes you feel dirty, it makes you feel unconfident and if something can be done about it, I think it should be.
There is currently no law in the UK that deals directly with the issue but proposed changes to legislation would apply to online and offline images and those convicted could face a maximum sentence of two years in prison.
Justice Secretary Chris Grayling said the distribution of such images was almost beyond belief .
We want those who fall victim to this type of disgusting behaviour to know that we are on their side and will do everything we can to bring offenders to justice, he said.
That is why we will change the law and make it absolutely clear to those who act in this way that they could face prison.
The change in the law would be made via an amendment to the Criminal Justice and Courts Bill.
Adam Pemberton, assistant chief executive for the charity Victim Support , said: This type of behaviour can be extremely distressing for its victims causing them significant psychological harm.
We are pleased that people who commit these gross violations of privacy will now face prosecution and victims of revenge porn know they have the full backing of the law.
But some experts are questioning whether a specific revenge porn offence will work.
Lawyer Myles Jackman told Sky News: It is very difficult as there are a number of different scenarios in which revenge porn might be created and not all of them will fit this one scenario.
Creating an offence that catches all is almost impossible.
