How to Stay Safe
Computers create records in hundreds of ways of everything you do on the computer and on the internet.
If you are in danger, please try to use a safer computer where someone abusive does not have direct access, or even remote (hacking) access.
It might be safer to use a computer in:
- A public library
- A community technology center
- A trusted friend's house
- At the Family Justice Center
If you think your activities are being monitored, you are probably right. Abusive people are often controlling and want to know your every move.
You don't need to be a computer programmer or have special skills to monitor someone's computer activities. Anyone can do it and there are many ways to monitor your computer activities..
Computers can provide a lot of information about what you look at on the internet, the emails you send and other activities.
It is not possible to delete or clear all computer "footprints."
