In the modern world, technology is a huge part of all of our lives, it is how we stay connected. However, technology can sadly also be used to as a tool to abuse people, to control and to overwhelm them, and as technology is becoming more popular in the modern world, this form of abuse is becoming more common too.

Some examples of tech abuse that you should be aware of and look out for are:

  • Monitoring your social media
  • Having access to your phone, email account and/or social media accounts.
  • Having access to your online banking accounts.
  • Not allowing you to have access to technology, such as a phone, or internet access
  • Using cameras or spyware to watch you or listen to your conversations
  • Using GPS locators or tracking apps on your phone to locate you
  • Constantly contacting you through text, calls, email and/or social media
  • Using smart home devices to harass you
