At SafeHorizon.org we want you to stay safe. If you feel unsafe while visiting our website, feel that your internet use is being monitored or in the event that an abuser enters the room, use the red tab on the right side of any page to quickly jump to weather.com  This button causes the pages visited on Safe Horizon to become lost in your internet history. After the sequence is finished, the web page will then redirect to Google.

Clearing Browser History

Your browser (Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc.) keeps track of what websites you visit in the browser history. If your website use is being monitored you may delete safehorizon.org visits from your browser history by selecting your browser Tools or Preferences and selecting safehorizon.org items in the history list to delete. Clearing all browser history may look suspicious, so it might be best to only select the web site visits that are undesirable.
