cyberstalking


cyberstalking

Cyberstalking is a form of online harassment that includes (repeatedly) sending threats or false accusations via email or mobile phone, making threatening or false posts on websites, monitoring a person’s computer and internet use, or stealing a person’s information – and even their identity. Sometimes these threats can escalate into physical acts. Anyone can be stalked online but, as is the case offline, the majority of cyberstalking victims are female. While the perpetrators may sometimes be strangers, often they are the former, estranged or current partners, boyfriends and husbands of the victims. Domestic violence victims are particularly at risk of cyberstalking.
