There are hundreds of ways that computers record everything you do on the computer and on the internet. Computers can provide a lot of information about what you look at on the internet, the emails you send and other activities. It is not possible to delete or clear all computer “footprints”.
It might be safer to use a computer in a public library, at a community technology center, at a trusted friend’s house or at an Internet Cafe. If you think that your activities are being monitored, they probably are. Abusive people are often controlling and want to know your every move. You don’t need to be a computer programmer or have special skills to monitor someone’s computer activities - anyone can do it and there are many ways to monitor.
