Safe website usage
If someone you know is abusing you, you may not want them to know that you have been looking at these webpages. If that person can use the same computer as you, it is possible for them to see how you've been using the internet.
The only certain way to prevent anyone finding out what webpages you have been viewing is to use a computer which they do not have access to. This could be at a local library, a friend's house, or an internet cafe.
Cover your tracks
If you are using your computer at home, there are things you can do to cover your tracks. You can find out more about safe use of the internet on the Victim Support website.
