Safely Navigating Connective Technologies

Domestic Violence and other dangerous situations...

Fear and control go hand-in-hand. When somebody feels highly-dependent on you in some way, whether or not they possess the awareness to admit or understand such, they are more likely to exhibit controlling behaviors. Many partners, even inadvertently, may stumble across a smartphone left unattended in the home. Others might track you with more intention and effort, especially on a shared device, where someone with specific knowledge could easily install a keylogger and gather your passwords as you type them in. If you live with a tech-savvy partner and use a modem or router that they installed, know that clearing your web browser will not be enough to remain undetected. Internet access points often store logs that list websites visited.

To counter keyloggers...

While software exists to help detect keyloggers, it may be best to browse sensitive information elsewhere. If you suspect passwords may be compromised, change them often and setup two-factor-authentication (2fa) wherever offered.

To counter tracking at the internet access point (router, modem, etc)...

Browse elsewhere.

To counter visual tracking...

If you've clicked on attachments emailed by a stalker, personal cameras on smartphones and other devices can be activated remotely. Keep cameras disconnected or covered.

To counter location tracking...

Especially if your phone bill is paid by someone else, they can easily report this phone stolen and request support in tracking it. Even when not owning the account, a lot of software is designed to find lost phones, and this can be utilized to track your location. If you're in a situation where you need to get away to a new life, either leave the phone behind or take the battery out until you get somewhere safe and find support. Just using airplane mode will disable wifi but not GPS.
