Internet usage can be monitored and is impossible to erase completely. Here are a few actions you can take to protection yourself:
Don't use a shared computer, phone, or tablet
Safe computers can be found at your local library, Internet cafe, shelter, workplace, or computer technology center. Avoid using shared computers when researching things like travel plans, housing options, legal issues, and safety plans.
Create a secure email
Does the person you are seeking protection from have access to your email or passwords? Consider creating a new email address unique for this case before beginning your petition.
Try to remove your online trail
Consider clearing the cache and cookies on your browser and deleting any downloaded documents after you're done.
Computers store information about the websites you visit. That means bills you pay and purchases you make are tracked, and messages or emails can be retrieved. You should always consider that a computer might be monitored when you use it and be careful with what you send others or post.
