Domestic Violence and Technology Safety Tips

Domestic Violence Safety Tips and Technology Safety Tips

If you or someone you know is the victim of domestic violence, the biggest concern is going to be the victim’s safety. It is almost always impossible to know for sure when a situation might arise and escalate so it’s wise to think ahead and be prepared for any eventuality. We have some safety tips for you to consider while you are putting together your preparations

When it comes to technology safety, trust your instincts. If you suspect an abusive person knows too much, it’s possible your phone, computer, email or other activities are being monitored. Abusers and stalkers can act in incredibly persistent and creative ways to maintain power and control. But you can reduce the risk.

If anyone who is abusive has access to your computer, they might be monitoring your activities. Spyware and keylogging programs are commonly available and can track what you do on your computer without you knowing it. To reduce this risk, use a ‘safer computer’ when looking for help or a new place to live etc. This could be a device at a library, community centre or at a friend’s house.
