Internet Safety: WARNING

You may not be able to prevent an abuser from reading your emails and monitoring your internet activity. If you are in danger, try to use a safer computer (at a friend’s house, at work, at a public library, at an internet café). If you think you are being monitored, you probably are. Trust your instincts. It does not take any special computer skills to use programs that read all of your emails (both sent and received) and know every site you visit.

Ways an Abuser Can Track You

  • Accessing your email (incoming and outgoing)
  • Watching the internet sites you visit
  • Reading your instant messages
  • Know your location and/or where you go by using a GPS in your car or on your cell phone (you may not know it’s there)
  • Viewing your cell phone records and/or listening to your messages
  • Using phone services to see who you call, who calls you, etc. (again, you may not know this is being done)
  • Accessing your text messages

If possible, do not email the Center. Call the Hotline (203) 731-5204. And remember using a corded phone is safest. We also have safe 911 cell phones available free of charge.
