Home The Issue Technology Safety

If your abuser has access to your computer or e-mail, they could be watching you.


  • If you think your activities are being monitored, they probably are. Abusive people are often controlling and want to know your every move.

  • Use a different computer in a library or borrow a friend's.

  • Email, Instant/Text Messaging (IM), Facebook, Twitter, blogging and other social media sites are NOT SAFE ways to share. Call a hotline instead.

  • Keep using your computer for normal things, like checking the news or the weather– if you stop using it, your abuser may get suspicious.

  • Create a new e-mail account, but DON'T use the same password and remember to sign out!

  • Talk to your friends and family about the safest ways to contact you.
