INTERNET and PHONE SAFETY  TOUCH-TONE TELEPHONE Safety If you call a hotline from a
shared telephone, don't forget to clear the "redial" button on the phone. When you hang up from
making your phone call, dial a number such as your local "time and temperature" line or just punch a
few random numbers. Then, hang up as you normally would and your trail should be obscured.

INTERNET Safety  Computers record everything you do. It is IMPOSSIBLE to clear your tracks
completely.  Your computer stores hundreds of bits of information about everything you do with your
computer, including information about which websites you've visited, your passwords, and what your
email's say. An abuser can readily track the websites you visit or read your email messages.  

If you suspect your activities are being monitored, they probably are.  Abusive people are often
controlling and want to know your every move. You don’t 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 your activities - even without having direct access to your computer.

Email is not a safe or confidential way to communicate. Sending email is like sending a postcard
through the mail. If you need to talk to someone about the danger or abuse in your life, if possible,
please consider calling a domestic violence hotline instead. If you must use email to discuss your
situation we suggest you use an account that an abuser doesn't know about.  Use a computer at an
Internet café, library, or a friend or family member’s house. You may also set up a new account with a
free email service like hotmail, yahoo, or gmail.  DO NOT use a name or password that contains any
identifying information (no names, nicknames, initials, birth dates, zip codes, etc.) Instead use a name
and password that contains a random mix of letters, CAPITAL letters and numbers (for example,
HJ3v67Tn) - Make sure you can remember the user name and password! If you must write it down
somewhere, put it in a place where an abuser is unlikely to find it. If the computer asks if you would like
it to save your password or login information tell it NO.  

Email attachments may contain spyware. Spyware can be downloaded onto your computer and
track your actions. Do not open attachments unless you trust the source that sent the email to you
and you are sure of the content in the attachment. If you must use a computer that an abuser knows
about, we suggest "safer" Internet surfing. For example, if you are planning to flee to California, don't
look just at California web pages for jobs, apartments, bus tickets, etc.  Look for the same information
in at least a half dozen other states, too.

HOW TO CLEAR YOUR BROWSER'S CACHE, COOKIES AND HISTORY Only clear your browser’s if
you know you are not being tracked by an abuser. An abuser may find it alarming if they are unable to
find the computer’s history.  If you decide to clear your browser, before you begin, be sure to
determine correctly which browser you are using. If you are using a different type of browser (such as
AOL for instance) you will need to consult with either an operating manual or with the software
company for directions. Be aware that following these steps will not guarantee 100% safety from
someone wishing to spy on your activities. These steps will help keep someone with an average
computer skill from being able to do so. Note: It is imperative that you close your Internet browser
before you leave the computer to better protect yourself! Click here for graphic instructions on clearing
your cache, history and cookies on Internet Explorer, Netscape, Safari and Firefox.

resulting window will tell you which version you have.
5.     Proceed to the "History" section and press the "Clear History" button. When the window appears,
press "Yes".
6.     Close the browser.

Netscape Navigator Versions 4x- 6x Clear the Cache:

5.     Select the "View Stored Cookies" button
6.     Click the "Remove All Cookies" button

This is basic information only.  If you are concerned that your abuser may gain access to your
information, the best thing to do is to go to a more secure computer, preferably at the public
library where it cannot be traced back to you.
