Browser Safety Tips

Important!!: We highly recommend that you do not view this or any informational site about abuse unless and until you are able to do so safely and without fear of discovery! 

Browsing sites such as this one is not a straightforward thing when one is in an abusive situation. It is very important to make sure there’s no evidence of any abuse sites in the browser history, particularly if the computer is a shared one. Please take the time to educate yourself about how to utilize your specific browser’s private browsing feature. For more information about private browsing, click on the following links which are relevant to the browser you currently use. You will find step-by-step instructions on how to enable a private browsing session.

Incognito in Google Chrome
Private Browsing in Firefox
InPrivate in Microsoft Internet Explorer
Private Browsing in Opera
Private Browsing in Safari

Additionally, “Quick Escape” buttons provide extra safety measures, in case your abuser walks in unexpectedly. Panic buttons give you the option to hide your tabs with the click of a button or a keystroke (note: be sure to read the instructions for each Panic Button extension, as each one may vary in how it’s used). Listed below are the links to the relevant pages where you’ll find Panic Button extensions for your specific browser. We couldn’t find one for Internet Explorer.
