Please join representatives from the Coalition Against Stalkerware, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, and UN Women for a discussion about how stalkerware, a form of tech-facilitated abuse, can act as a tool for intimate partner violence and different forms of cybercrime. Stalkerware is commercially available software that an abuser can use to remotely record a person’s calls, log text messages, monitor social media activity, and track location data without notifying that person and without their consent. This type of software can enable acts of intimate partner violence, both digitally and offline. Stalkerware can also facilitate cybercrime, given the fact that this type of software can access personally-identifiable information stored on a device. We all have a role to play in recognizing the insidious nature of these technologies, the harmful impact that they have, and the need for collective action to support and assist individuals targeted by stalkerware.
