If your abuser uses the same computer as you, they may be able to find out what web pages you have been looking at!
The best way to avoid this is to use a different computer – perhaps at a friend’s place, work, an internet cafe or a public library. To keep emails secret, create a new email account and only use this account at a computer that your abuser can’t use.
You can search through to find related information.
