If any person monitors the following used by a woman, it amounts to cyber stalking:
- Any other form of electronic communication
- Social media platforms
For example, if someone is contacting you on multiple social media platforms despite making it clear that you are not interested in interacting with this person, then this means that they are stalking you online.
Anyone who is stalking you, if convicted for the first time, can face jail time up to three years and a fine, and on the second conviction, jail time up to five years and a fine.1
