Ryan Collins is a US computer hacker who stole passwords for the accounts of celebrities. He then stole private information, especially naked photographs. He would also pose as a talent scout for models to convince victims to send him naked pictures.
Pennsylvania native Collins gained control of 50 Apple iCloud accounts and 72 Gmail accounts, with high-profile victims including Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, and Avril Lavigne. Unlike other hackers, he did not, however, release anything to the public.
In October 2016 he was sentenced to 18 months in US federal prison, where there is no chance of early parole for any reason.
