Harry and Meghan Markle.
Meghan Markle said on Tuesday she has no social media accounts "for her own self-preservation" and has no idea what is being said about her online.
Meghan, who with her husband Harry left the UK earlier this year partly as a result of media hostility, has been campaigning for months against the effects of negative online chatter.
"For my own self-preservation, I have not been on social media for a very long time,” Meghan told Fortune magazine's Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit.
"I made a personal choice to not have any account, so I don’t know what’s out there, and in many ways that’s helpful for me,” she added. She said she closed down her personal account years ago and that her and Harry's now defunct official Sussex Royal Instagram and Twitter account were managed by others.
Harry and Meghan now live in Southern California after stepping down from their royal roles in March to forge a new life and finance it themselves.

TV presenter Gayle King revealed that Prince Harry has spoken to William and Charles, but ‘conversations were not productive.’ The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are still very upset with ‘false stories’ that are ‘disparaging’ against Meghan, she said.
Prince Harry hit out at “online platforms that have contributed to, stoked, and created the conditions for a crisis of hate, a crisis of health, and a crisis of truth”.
The proposal comes in the wake of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex claiming in an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey that a member of the family — not the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh — had made a racist comment about their son Archie.
She was backed by international trade minister Greg Hands, who said that “the apparent targeting of her by anybody in an intimidatory way, including by foreign embassies, is totally unacceptable”.
