Computer and Internet Safety


Domestic abuse – computer and internet safety.

Abusers often use ways of controlling or monitoring their victim’s actions, which can include their online activities.

Internet browsers generally record the websites that an internet user has visited, and some programs can allow a computer user’s actions to be tracked without them being aware of it.

It is safer to use public computers such as libraries and internet cafes if you are concerned. You can find more information about computer safety and deleting internet history by clicking here.

A person in or who has left a domestic violence relationship must take care when using social networking such as twitter, facebook, and other social media that can log your location. Simple precautions include not revealing your location and being mindful of photo uploads that have GPS information attached.
