Covering Your Tracks

If you or some­one you love is in an abu­sive rela­tion­ship, there’s a vari­ety of web sites to help in addi­tion to ours. As a pre­cau­tion, you should hide your inter­net activ­ity from an abuser, because this per­son may have access to your computer.

The direc­tions to Delete Your Browser His­tory can help you cover your tracks. But there’s the pos­si­bil­ity that an abuser can still see the web­sites you’ve gone to and e-mails you’ve sent. The best safety mea­sure is to use a com­puter that your abuser doesn’t have access to, such as a com­puter at a friend’s home, at a library or at work.
