Haters gonna hate.

But you can stop harassment from
escalating to hacking.

What is online harassment?

Online harassment can take the form of stalking, physical threats, defamation, identity theft, impersonation, trolling, exposing sensitive personal information, and (very unfortunately) more

Security key

What is personal digital safety?

Personal digital safety is a set of practices and behaviors to prevent online harassment from escalating to harm and interference with daily life. It's an ongoing process that includes password management, authentication strategies, timely support, access to legal resources, and more.

20% who report harassment
say they feared negative impacts on their professional lives

50%+ of stalking victims
lose 5 or more days from work

The professional is personal.

Online harassment is not just in the headlines; it’s everywhere.

Data breaches

It’s not just “nice.” It’s the business.

Without the proper safeguards in place, your teams don’t know what could happen when malicious trolls target them. Threats, slander, and other vicious messages (sometimes hundreds) can make them:

Extremely distracted and anxious.

More likely to miss work.

Less likely to step up, speak out, and bring their best to work.

Lose faith in your business and their own abilities.


With the benefit of Tall Poppy, they know what will happen: nothing. And that means everything for your business.

Everybody’s business is vulnerable.

Even if you don’t sell, publish, or build anything online, your information—and your employees’—is out there and exploitable. Adding personal digital safeguards increases your “herd immunity”: The more people who are resistant to threats, the safer the whole organization is.
