How can I clear my internet history so that my abuser doesn't know which websites I have accessed?

Everything you look at on the internet is stored in your computer's memory files. If you are concerned that an abuser would be able to see which websites you have visited it is important that you clear your computer history. In order to do this you must first establish which browser you are using. The browser is the application (window) you use to access the internet, for example Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome. Follow the link below of your browser to access the relevant history removal instructions.

Internet Explorer
IE
Safari

Opera

Please note:

It is important to recognise that following the above steps may not completely hide your tracks. Many browser types have features that display recently visited sites. The safest way to find information on the internet if you suspect that you are being monitored would be at a local library, a friend's house, or at work.
