Technology Safety

Although technologies such as the internet, email and mobile phones make it easier for people who have experienced domestic or family violence to access information and support, these technologies can also be used by perpetrators to exert power and control and to make people feel unsafe.

Learning how to use technology and the internet more safely is especially important for people who are living with someone who is very controlling, or uses violence in their relationships.

Information about using technology safely is available below. Remember the counsellors at Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia can help anyone who is in a controlling or violent relationship and who may be worried about their safety online.
