Delete your internet history to prevent others from discovering your internet activities
Use a safe computer e.g. public library, a friend's house or at your workplace
Recognise that social networking sites are not secure and can be a way for an abuser to find out information about you.
Delete all online accounts and create new anonymous ones - ebay, paypal, etc
Perhaps also consider:
Deactivating your accounts (you can always reactivate them later when it is safe to do so)
Creating new accounts in a false name with a generic photo and only tell your closest friends
Explain to your friends and family that you are at risk and ask them to set their privacy settings to 'friends only'. Ask them not to accept friend requests from people they don't know. Request that they do not post information or photos about you or your children online and that they never give out your phone number, address, email or other social media addresses.
