Our Website

The website uses HTTPS which uses encryption to keep any personal information a user might enter on http://safehorizon.org, between them and Safe Horizon.  The website also uses strong passwords to prevent brute force attacks from hackers.

Escape Button

At SafeHorizon.org we want you to stay safe. If you feel unsafe while visiting out website or feel that your internet use is being monitored, use the red tab on the right side of any page to quickly escape to Google.com. If there is still time remaining, delete SafeHorizon.org from your browser history.

The escape button acts as a quick way for a user to exit the website in the event that an abuser enters the room. Once the user hits ‘Close now’ this browser is redirected to a series of dummy URLs. These dummy URLs mimic real sites such as weather.com and comedycentral.com to create a fake web browsing history for the user. These cause the pages they visited for Safe Horizon to become lost in the history. After the sequence is finished, the web page will then redirect to Google.
