Stay Safe

Staying Safe using the telephone

Dailing another number after using the telephone will ensure that the redial function cannot be used to trace your call.  You may need to delete your recent call list if using a mobile, please view the instructions that came with your handset for details on how to do this.

Stay Safe online using the internet

Everything you look at on the internet is stored in your computer’s memory files. If you are concerned that an abuser would be able to see which websites you have visited it is important that you clear your computer history.

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