|What is Cyberstalking?|
|Cyberstalking is online stalking. It has been defined as the use of technology, particularly the Internet, to harass someone. Common characteristics include false accusations, monitoring, threats, identity theft, and data destruction or manipulation of data equipment in the victim’s home.
The harassment can take on many forms, but most of the time it is unwanted, often obsessive, and usually illegal. Cyberstalkers use email, instant messages, phone calls, computer hacking, and other techniques to stalk.
