Abuse

If you are in danger, please

• Call 911,
• Call the local hotline at 1-877-379-3798
• Call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE

There are hundreds of ways that computers record everything you do on the computer and on the Internet.

If you are in danger, please try to use a safer computer that someone abusive does not have direct access, or even remote (hacking) access to.

It might be safer to use a computer in a public library, at a community technology center (CTC) www.ctcnet.org(national directory), at a trusted friend’s house, or at an Internet café.

If you think your activities are being monitored, it is best to act with caution. Abusive people are often controlling and want to know your every move. You do not 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.

Computers can provide a lot of information about what you look at on the Internet, the e-mails you send, and other activities. It is not possible to delete or clear all computer “footprints.”

If you think you may be monitored on your home computer, you might consider no home Internet use or “safer” Internet surfing. For example, if you are planning to flee to another state, do not look at classified ads for jobs, apartments, bus tickets, etc., in that state on your home computer or on any computer an abuser has physical or remote access to. Use a safer computer to research an escape plan.

Safety Alert: Computer use can be monitored and is impossible to be completely safe. If you are in danger, please use a safer computer, call your local hotline 1-877-379-3798, and/or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE.

E-mail is not a safe or confidential way to talk to someone about the danger or abuse in your life. Please call us instead.

Traditional “corded” telephones are more private than cellular or cordless telephones .
