About this app

DocuSAFE helps victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, online harassment, and dating violence document the technology abuse, harassment, stalking and other types of crimes they are experiencing. Survivors can document abuse by logging individual incidents, including any photos, screenshots, or video documentation of threatening messages, harassing social media posts, unwanted repeat calls, or online impersonation, among other abusive behaviors.

By storing documentation of abuse in one central location, survivors can more easily identify the abuse that is occurring, the extent and the frequency to which it is occurring, including possible escalation of the behaviors. While not all survivors may choose to pursue legal action against the abusive person, for those who do, this app may be used to document and store evidence of the abuse that can be transferred to law enforcement or a judge during a legal proceeding. The app provides options for securely sharing the content if the survivor chooses to. A PIN will be required to set up and access the app content in order to increase security and privacy.

This app was created by the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), with funding from the Office on Victims of Crime (OVC).

Limitations of the App:
It’s important to note that this app is intended to be a tool in the documentation process and cannot prevent, predict, or assess for abuse you may be experiencing. What documentation will be accepted in court may vary by jurisdiction. It’s important to talk to a local attorney, law enforcement, or an advocate if you are hoping to use the documentation in a legal case.

Safety Considerations:
If you think your device(s) could be monitored by someone looking through your phone or device or accessing it remotely using spy software, having this type of resource on your phone may be a safety risk. Consider not downloading this app onto that device.

This app will also require that it be connected to your Google account to protect the documentation from being lost or destroyed. This may not be a safe option for everyone. Please determine what is safe for you in deciding whether or not to use this app.

You can download this app onto a device that isn’t being monitored. For more information about technology abuse, please visit TechSafety.org.

To talk to someone about what you are experiencing, contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 or chat with them via their website at TheHotline.org.

Looks like a great app! However, I left the app and went back to it, the pin screen came back up and I clicked the back button and was able to get right back into the app and look at photos I uploaded without having to put in a pin again. This would pose a major safety risk if I was currently in an abusive situation. I have a Samsung Note8, might want to make sure your security is as good as you say it is!

Really wished I could upload multiple files at once. Instead of one by one. Only reason I gave it 4 stars, AND THEN deleting it. extremely too much I need together. Just the texts messages are more than 17 000. LOVE LOVE LOVE THE HELP GUIDES AND NUMBERS AVAILABLE, TELLS YOU WHAT AND HOW TO PLAN FOR THINGS LIKE BOOST COURT ETC. USE THIS AS SOON AS YOU START SAVING EVIDENCES..

Waste of time and effort. I saved about 10 files on my case and suddenly, all my pictures and documents were deleted somehow. I lost all my files and time becuase of this app. I'm so upset about trusting this source.
