Online safety planning
If technology is being used to abuse or threaten you as part of domestic and family violence, we can help you manage online risks and stay safe.
In this section you can learn more about how to create an online safety plan for you and your children. An online safety plan can help you stay connected and prevent abusers from locating you through social media and your online accounts and devices.
If you are unsure whether you are at risk of technology-facilitated abuse, read ‘what are the warning signs?’.
You can use these resources yourself, or work through them with the help of a domestic violence support worker as part of a broader safety plan. If you would like help with safety planning, call 1800RESPECT (1800 737 732) from a safe phone — a public phone or trusted friend’s phone.
If you are in Australia and feeling unsafe right now, call the police on Triple Zero (000) or contact 1800RESPECT (1800 737 732). Remember your safety is important. If an abusive person learns that you are seeking resources and information, their abusive behaviour may get worse. Learn more and connect with support.
