Safety first! If you think someone may be monitoring your device, you can:

  • Watch the OIC from a friend’s device instead, delete the website from your browser history, or watch it in an incognito window. Learn how on TechSafety.org.
  • If you are logged into your YouTube account, log out before watching.

This Online Information Clinic covers enforcement considerations for victims/survivors of domestic violence, including who can report a violation, how and when a violation can be reported, civil and criminal contempt, and how to enforce an out-of-state order.
