Technology-facilitated gender-based violence (TFGBV) is when technology (such as a smartphone, computer, Smartwatch, or a Smart home device) is misused to commit violent abusive acts such as domestic violence, harassment, stalking, sexual assault, impersonation, extortion, and the non-consensual filming and sharing of intimate images.

The library of resources below was developed by the Tech Safety Canada Project, our project partners, or adapted for Canada with permission from the National Network to End Domestic Violence and WESNET Australia to provide survivors of TFGBV, their supporters, and anti-violence programs with helpful tips to increase the privacy and security of their own tech use.
