without their authorization it's illegal and called hacking.

Notify local crime enforcement in your area, it's called Blackmail.

Agreed, whether or not it's embarrassing is irrelevant.  You cannot hack into someone's computer and delete a file you think they may have without their permission or a court order.  Contact the police if you are being blackmailed.  It worked out for Letterman.

If the question was answered and "informed [you] of what [you] needed to know" then you should select that answer or those answers that informed you.

the best way if they are trying to extort you is to get in contact with local authorities and police

In other words - your answer is "It's Illegal" - the expert(s) told you that. How does that fail to answer your question then?

Question answered correctly. It's illegal and you need to seek advice from Law Enforcement or Specialists in your country.
