If your computer is being monitored by your abuser, you can click the ESCAPE button in the lower-right corner to erase this page from your browser's history. It will then send you to Google.

Also you should probably be browsing this in Private mode. It's "CTRL + Shift + P in Firefox, CTRL + Shift + N in Chrome." 'cause then nobody's gonna see your browsing history that way! c◕ᴗ◕✿)

Welcome to the Universal Internet Help Resource! Put together by my friends and I, this is supposed to function as a quick reference for people who need help.

Currently, the Help Resource is organized by what problem you're experiencing, so that you can quickly experience relief from that problem.

Just below this, the most-frequently-encountered problems are listed uncategorized, as this information is more-frequently-utilized than other information.

All information on this page, besides properties copyrighted by others, is free for you to use for your own purposes, and copy. It's yours. Just spread it everywhere, I dun' care.

Domestic Abuse / Violence Prevention & Remediation
Before I say anything else: Be careful using the following websites if you suspect your computer is being monitored by your abuser.

To quickly and easily find a domestic violence shelter near you, visit this site: DomesticShelters.org. They also provide hotlines and other resources near you.

If you're dealing with domestic abuse / violence, then this app may help. Called the ICE BlackBox Digital Witness, anything you record with this app is sent directly to law enforcement. You can use it to record your abuser, and the app will provide a permanent evidentiary record that cannot be deleted, as it's uploaded to the cloud. It is currently available for Android and iOS.

If you feel it's safe to do so, you can call
The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 | TTY 1-800-787-3224
