Computer use can be monitored by the abuser to access email and find out what sites are visited on the internet.
If you think you are in danger, use safe computers such as at the public library, domestic violence organization or community center.
You can first call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233), from a phone where the number called is not available to the abuser.
You cannot know how many ways an abuser can access what you do on the internet.
