Computer Safety Tips

Make sure you take precautions when using email or the internet. Remember to use a secure email account and choose a password that your abuser will not be able to guess. If your abuser knows how to read your computer's history or cache file, he/she may be able to discover what you have recently viewed on the internet.

You can clear that history easily:

Netscape: Pull down Edit menu. Select Preferences. Click on Navigator on choose 'Clear History.' Click on Advanced then select Cache. Click on 'Clear Disk Cache.'

Older versions of Netscape: Pull down Options menu. Select Network Options. Select Cache. Click on 'Clear Disk Cache.'

Internet Explorer: Pull down View menu. Select Internet Options. On General page, under Temporary Internet Files, click on 'Delete Files.' Under History, click 'Clear History.'

AOL: Pull down Settings menu. Select Preferences. On General page, under Temporary Internet Files, click on 'Delete Files.' Under History, click 'Clear History.'

NOTE: This may not erase your entire history from your computer. If you are concerned about your abuser checking your internet activity, use the computer at a local library, at a friendís house, or at work.
