Always remember that computers record everything you do on the computer and on the Internet. It is possible to delete your history and you may need to do so for your safety.

Always remember to delete text messages you have sent or received – unless they are messages sent by an abuser. Threatening or harassing text messages may be used as evidence – you could screenshot these and save them somewhere safe.

You can delete call logs on your phone. It may be safer to make a call on a trusted friend’s phone.

If you are concerned that someone else may come into the room while you are visiting this site, and you do not want them to see what you are looking at, the quickest way to hide the site is to close the window or click on the ‘Safety Exit’ on the bottom right hand side of this website which is also static for easy access as you scroll.

You could also open another browser window and leave it open at another website, placing it behind the window you are currently using (this site). This way, if you have to quickly close the main window, you will not be left looking at a blank screen.

E-mail – E-mail may not be the safest way to seek help if you are being monitored. Be sure to regularly change your password and delete incoming and outgoing mail. Some email services automatically save addresses, so be sure to check your address book too.

If you receive threatening or harassing emails, it is a good idea to save or screenshot them – they may be helpful evidence to prove a criminal offence has been committed.
