SmartSafe began as a research project in 2012-2013.
This project, funded by Victoria Legal Aid, focused on how perpetrators were using technology to stalk and abuse women in the context of domestic violence. It included surveys with domestic violence sector workers, and victim/survivors, focus groups, and interviews.
SmartSafe has since expanded to include a suite of technology safety tools, including this website, a smartphone app, annual survey and other research projects.

SmartSafe+ is designed to assist women to collect and store evidence to help them get an intervention order, or to prove a breach (recommended for Victorian use only).
