Domestic Abuse - Clear your internet history if you are worried about someone knowing you have visited support websites.
Internet browsers normally save certain information as you use the Internet. This includes words you’ve searched, and a history of the sites you’ve visited. If you’re worried that someone at home will look at what you’ve done online and see the support sites that you have visited, the safest option is to use a computer at a local library, a friend’s house, or at work.
