Safety & Privacy

An abuser can track your Internet activities, including websites you have visited. There are ways to cover your tracks online, but you need to be careful. If your abuser is comfortable with computers, or has a friend to help them, and sees that you have deleted files, he or she may get angry or suspicious. If this is a possibility, try to use a different computer, like one at the library, work or a friend's house.
Remember this also applies to your smartphones, iPads or tablets!

Web browsers, like Internet Explorer and Firefox and Safari, keep a list of the most recent web sites you have visited in the history file. You can look at your own history by locating and clicking on the history button on your toolbar.
