Some apps have been developed to provide specific assistance to survivors of abuse. These include apps that help survivors to document abuse or learn about the status of an abuser who is in prison. Other have been created so users can take action against abuse, whether as a survivor or a bystander.

Survivors should consider their privacy and safety risks before using any type of app. Look through the tips in the Choosing and Using Apps: Considerations for Survivors section for questions to think through and tips on navigating safety and privacy issues.
