Safe Browsing

If you’re worried about someone knowing you have visited this website then please read this information. It tells you how to take steps to increase your safety when using the internet.

Internet History and Cache File:

It’s possible for someone to know which websites you have visited by looking through your computer’s history or cache file (automatically saved web pages and graphics). Fortunately it is simple to manage and erase these files.

IMPORTANT: The information below may not completely hide your tracks. The safest way to find information on the Internet is to do it in a safe place. This could be at a local library, a friend’s house, or at work.

Some modern browsers have a “Privacy Mode” which does not record your history or save cache files. To access this mode in Internet Explorer 8, click Tools > In Private Browsing, or press Ctrl+Shift+P.

If your browser does not have a Privacy Mode, or you’ve accessed this site without using it, follow these steps to completely erase your history and cache files.

Internet Explorer:

  • Click on the Tools menu (in the row at the top of the browser)
  • Click Delete Browsing History (or press Ctrl+Shift+Delete)
  • Click Tools again, then select Internet Options
  • Under the General tab, click Delete in the Browsing History section

Firefox:

  • Click on the Tools menu
  • Select Clear Recent History, or press Ctrl+Shift+Delete

E-mail:

If an abuser has access to your e-mail account, they may be able to read your incoming and outgoing mail. If you believe your account is secure, make sure you choose a password that an abuser will not be able to guess. If an abuser sends you threatening or harassing e-mail messages, they may be printed and saved as evidence of this abuse.

Computers at Work:

Keep in mind that computers at the workplace are the property of your employer. Any websites you access or emails that you read can be monitored by your employer, especially by anyone who is an administrator of your computer network.
