Cover your tracks on-line

If an abuser knows how to read your computer's history or cache file (automatically saved web pages and graphics), he or she may be able to see information you have viewed recently on the internet.

If you are in immediate danger please call 999.

The safest way to find information on the internet

The safest way to find information on the internet if you suspect that you are being monitored, would be at a local library, a friend's house, or at work.
