Internet Safety Warning


Someone May Be Tracking Your Computer Activity

Protect yourself with some basic safety steps and information.

Computers are not always safe because they can easily be monitored by your batterer. If your batterer has access to your computer, don’t use it. Instead, use a computer in a public library, a community center, a coffee shop, or in the home of someone you trust.
