Cyber Stalking – It’s not always how you imagine it.
Before separating, a husband bought a mobile phone for his wife. Unbeknownst to her, he registered his details on the cloud – which were linked to that phone.
This enabled him to monitor every SMS, call, photo captured on the phone and internet page viewed. Because he could access all this information, easily from the cloud, he kept track of her every move and eventually her affair.
What to do if you believe you are being stalked
Cyber stalking is a form of domestic violence. The victim should seek legal advice for obtaining an intervention order or an injunction restraining that behaviour.
Our advice is for you to be aware of the functions enabled on your phone. Always have a password on your phone. If you suspect thatsomeone is stalking you, stop using the phone immediately and speak with us for a range of solutions.
