Without the correct security measures, someone can snoop and discover your outreach activities through email and internet browsing history.
If someone has access to your email account, they may be able to read your incoming and outgoing messages.
Things you can do to make your email account more secure:
If anyone sends you threatening or harassing email messages, it helps to print and save them as evidence of this abuse. Additionally, the message may constitute a criminal offence. For more information, contact your local police department.

Also included in the links are browser specific instructions on private browsing after you’ve cleared your data.
Private browsing options are also available on many smart phones. These settings are available through the settings menus while using the browser. If you can use a key lock or other passcode feature to gain access to the phone, do so and make sure not to share this information with anyone.
