About this site

Technology can be an important way to connect with our family, friends and community.

Women have a right to use technology freely and safe from abuse.

Unfortunately these technologies are also targeted as a tool of abuse by perpetrators seeking to stalk and abuse women. Technology-facilitated abuse is a growing issue in Australia.

This website was developed by the Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria (DVRCV) as part of a suite of tools and responses to technology-facilitated abuse in Australia. It aims to support education and awareness around the positive use of technology for those experiencing violence.

The legal guides are provided by the Women’s Legal Service NSW as part of the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN) funded project, ReCharge: Women’s Technology Safety.

We welcome feedback about any aspect of this site. Please contact us if you have any comments or suggestions.

We acknowledge the support of the Victorian Government.
