What is Doxing?Doxing

Doxing is about to get an information about someone ! Simply it deals with the profiling of your target . Whatever information you get by researching your target comes under Doxing . Doxing defines a Step by step approach through which you profile your target . Here are some of the techniques :
  • -IP Address [80% effective, in my opinion its the best way to dox]
  • -Email [Not very effective,Useful in getting the victim’s social account]
  • -Home/Street Address [Shitty,Almost won’t work with you]
  • -Phone number [You may not get anything from that,Bad way]
  • -Name [There is 7 billion people in earth,The chances are extremely low to make a site/tool or whatever to determine the person you are looking for]
