Hide your tracks online 

If someone you know is abusing you, you may not want them to know that you have been looking at these webpages. If that person can use the same computer as you, it is possible for them to see how you've been using the internet.   

The only way to be sure no one finds out what webpages you have viewed is to use a computer which they do not have access to. This could be at a local library, a friend's house, or an internet cafe.
