Digital technologies, including mobile devices, cloud computing services, and social networks, play a nuanced role in intimate partner violence (IPV) settings, including domestic abuse, stalking, and surveillance of victims by abusive partners. In this talk our recent and ongoing work on understanding technology’s role in IPV, improving the privacy and security of current technologies, and designing new tools and systems that increase privacy and safety for victims will be discussed.
