The Technology Safety and Privacy Toolkit provides women, youth, and gender-diverse people experiencing technology-facilitated gender-based violence (TFGBV) with safety tips, general information, and strategies to use technology safely and increase privacy. This toolkit also includes tips on securing specific devices and using specific platforms and technology.
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.
This toolkit includes a series of specific tech safety documents designed to help survivors and anti-violence workers respond to and enhance strategies for safety. Though the content of this toolkit is up to date at the time of publishing, we know that technology is constantly emerging and changing. We encourage you to check our toolkit regularly for updated information and connect with your local shelter or transition house for additional support.
