Surveillance technology can easily monitor your movements and conversations. Your abuser can use hidden cameras, such as a “Nanny Cam,” or even a baby monitor to check in on you.
Global Positioning System (GPS) devices are also cheap and easy to use. GPS devices can be hidden in your car, your purse, or other objects you carry with you. Your abuser can also use your car’s GPS system to see where you’ve been.
If you discover any tracking or recording devices, leave them be until you’re ready to leave. While it may be tempting to remove them or shut them off, this will alert your abuser that you’re on to him/her.
