It is impossible to completely erase your online activities.  However, there are several ways to conduct your self-help research without calling attention to yourself:

  • Clear select websites from from your browser history.
    • ​Deleting the entire history could look suspicious if you are in fact being watched.
  • ​Your email, text messages, and instant messages can be tracked and therefore are not safe communication methods if you are being watched.
  • Carry out research on an escape plan, a new job, alternative living space, or bus tickets on a private or safe device.
    • ​Computers and devices that are safe could be found at the public library, an internet café, or in the hands of a trusted friend.
