So my parents own the WiFi, I use the wifi, sometimes for personal things (cough cough). But- will they see what I’ve searched and watched on their wifi even if I’m on incognito- I’m sh**ing myself.

Technically possible, though unlikely they would do so. If you want to keep your porn secret from them, use a VPN or Tor.

Just use a VPN if you want any person to snoop on what you usually check online.

Yes they can. Use your data if you don't want them to see your history, I think.

Yes- if they check the list of websites you have accessed using their wifi.
Also if they have installed monitoring software on the equipment that you use to access the websites via wifi (phone, computer or tablet device).

No need to stress them out even more. You have no idea if they check and there is no need to say it is embarrassing. It isn't helpful.
Ah thank you…I’m super stressed

They technically can, though if you're old enough to be in uni it seems a bit odd why they'd be checking.

Chill out. I’m 95% sure your parents don’t know about your “nature documentaries”. Unless they get one of those “detailed bills” from your provider

Possible but extremely unlikely. If software isn't already monitoring the network, they would have to contact the ISP.

I’m nearly 20 so it’s all legal but I’d just be mortified if they saw what I’d been watching 😖

Don't worry, they are very unlikely to check without a reason.

Normal parents wouldn’t care that their grown up child looked at porn? They probably don’t check what you looked at anyway

My parents were the same way. They'd spy on my siblings and I's internet usage. They'd tell me "it's for your safety". I know they were spying on me to see where I was going online and who I was talking to. They got pissed when they found out I was talking to a teen girl from Australia and would tell me I was talking to a predator. They never knew I was talking to her over skype.
