A new portal run by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner will provide assistance and support for the victims of revenge porn and cyberbullying.

A new online portal will provide victims of revenge porn not only a way to report the abuse but also a place to seek support and legal advice.

A world first, the portal goes live on Monday.

It is run by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner and promises "Australians who have had intimate images or videos shared without their consent will be able to access tangible support and advice".

The portal also runs a complaints service for young Australians who experience cyberbullying and addresses illegal online content.

New research shows the majority of victims of revenge porn don't know what to do or where to turn for advice and help, News Corp Australia reports.
