'Can my parents see what I've been doing on my laptop on theirs?'

First off it should be pretty embarrassing for my parents to snoop on my Internet history as I'm nearly 21.

Nevertheless I will sometimes end up looking at porn, but also sites on help to quit(because I want to at least cut down to respect my gf). However I'm scared that my mum and stepdad will find what I've been looking for

We have 2 separate laptops connected via wireless. I'm only visiting them for the weekend really.
Please don't tell me their electric bill or router won't come up with my porn history :palmtotheface:

(but if they can find out please tell me)

They probably have a porn tracker installed on the router as it comes free a lot of the time. They'll be able to see what sites you've been to, but not the specific videos.

Do you know the router details and what company it's from? If so, you can log onto the company site and delete the record on the porn tracker every time after you watch it.

I doubt your parents will have gone to the trouble.

Pretty sure this is a troll though.

I reckon it's a serious post, who doesn't face this problem though?

Agreed :afraid:
I'm moving out of home in a few weeks but I'm worried my new landlord will be able to see what I've been viewing , was actually considering getting mobile internet so this wouldn't be a problem XD

The question you should be asking yourself is "Why would my parents want to know what porn I've been looking at?".

I'm sure there's some way they could snoop your web activity if they really wanted to and are reasonably tech savvy. But realistically, they probably aren't interested.

I tried that but I've heard it still comes up on the router and ISP history if they have an admin account on the network?
I just don't want to take chances, my stepdad's a salesman for quite a big tech company

Either way, you must be looking at some pretty hard core stuff to be this concerned about whether they'll see it or not. Chances are, they won't be bothered.

Consider this-would they really CARE? Even if they did find out, and this is unlikely, it's not really that big of a deal. You're a 21 year old guy. Unless your parents are completely clueless about the world around them, I'm guessing they probably assume you view porn anyway.

99% of parents won't have a logger/packet snooper on a network so I would say they won't

The likelihood they even know how to track porn sites is not going to be enough for you to worry

Tbf if I were a mum I would veto a porn tracker because why on Earth would I be interested in the kinds of porn my son likes.

My mother was :ashamed:

She confronted me on it once, that no images 'of that nature are allowed in this house'.
