I’d get a million watt candle light and shine it in his eyeballs next time you see him. (Probably not a great idea but wouldn’t that be fun?)
Yes - change all passwords! Use a password-protected or thumbprint-protected password manager on your phone or something so you can make them super secure. Change your email password and that your recovery email addresses all go to you and not any new/different accounts. Put two-factor authentication on everything. If you leave things logged in on your laptop, never leave it unattended - take it and your phone with you every single time you leave your desk at work and sleep with them both in your bedroom. If not too inconvenient, carry it in a laptop bag with you even when shopping to ensure that he doesn’t get access. Be sure to check it for keyloggers.You might ask about the security of your home network. Is your internet safe or did he manage to get access to view (possibly through wifi or compromised computers?). Another thing that I was thinking of as I read your posts again this morning is about security of your cameras. A neighbor recently had her Nest cameras hacked and someone was watching them through the cameras. There are steps to take to make sure your system is safe. I'm not familiar with them, but the police or another security expert should be able to help you make sure he can't use your safety measures to get further access.
Also, do you park in your garage or on the street? A comment above made me think about the small tracking devices available now. If he has done this much already, I would worry about him attaching a small tracker to your car.
Hire an off duty police officer to sit at the beginning of the private driveMy neighbor has video, he is going thru right now to see what he's got from Thursday and Friday.
Pull in my driveway at 3 am once, ok. Same car, multiple times in 2 months and now following me NOT innocuous. My street is private, not public. Once you turn on my street you are on private property. My state law clearly defines stalking and this mans actions meet the definition.
I would never use deadly force unless it was truly him or me.
I'll look into that! Found a local PI, but they want a $2500 retainer to start. I'll see how much an off duty would cost. The local sheriff office is also doing random drive through too..Hire an off duty police officer to sit at the beginning of the private drive
I had to hire and off duty police officer for a funeral (eek and I had a body guard too lol... one day over wine we shall talk)... it was reasonable.I'll look into that!

Dash cams installed in car now, hopefully I'll get that plate.
Husband went with a different brand, but I think the ring light would be perfect!!! My neighbors are all aware and all voicing concern for their families as well, so do not think the alarm would bother them. Off to check on that now. Can I just get the motion detector light? I do not need the doorbell thing.Oh, I have the ring system and they have the ring video motion detector flood light cam with alarm you can set off from the app.
So if it told you he was in you driveway, whatever, you could set the alarm off (it’s LOUD) and also let the neighbors know he is around, etc.
Might be worth a thought
Yes and to store it on the ring app is fairly cheap, definitely worth the expense. You have to pay to store it or you won’t be able to retrieve it. It was very easy to install and you get the neighborhood alerts so you can network with other ring owners in your area, (anonymously)Husband went with a different brand, but I think the ring light would be perfect!!!

Oh and chilling with some wine is very appealing right now!
