Privacy

Today, my dad saw my cleared internet history and said, "You do know we can still track your history with your IP address, right?" I don’t ever look at porn or anything like that. I just don’t want other people knowing all my business all the time. FML
I agree, your life sucks 866

Right, like he knows how

Some routers make it easy to turn on website logging. Regardless though living with parents is generally a war for privacy.

As a parent, part of the verbal contract with my kid is that if he wants to have a cell phone, computer, internet etc. paid by mom and dad, we have the right to search it when we need to. And mostly we only search it to bust him for finding ways through the parental restrictions to play games at 1am when he's supposed to be sleeping or finding a way to "accidentally" buy skins on Fortnite. Basically he knows the rules and that we can search his phone when we suspect he's been breaking them. Otherwise he's not old enough or responsible enough to trust with that technology.

My parents always told us we were entitled to our privacy so we never felt like breaking any rules

I can't imagine what it's like to raise a kid, much less a teenager in these days. I was a teenager when MySpace was a thing and my mom would hack into it to read my messages. There was nothing to find but it caused me to resent and hate her at that time. But I certainly wasn't buying things on her dime without permission or anything like that. Thank you for the birth control reminder 😊

So you mean I don’t have to have the illegal key-logger on my kids computers?

If he’s not old enough or responsible enough to have technology, then why does he have it? If you can’t trust them with it, then they shouldn’t have it. You wouldn’t give the keys to a Ferrari to a 13 year old and say, “sure hope you don’t drive this.”

I don't understand folks who treat their kids like prisoners. My aunts were open minded and didn't do things like this. They may as well toss their kids room for contraband

So Unless your dad is literally an IT and has had everything set up already he can't look back at what you've done your ISP can your ISP might also have allowed him access to that but simple solution tell him you can do the same thing to him mutual destruction
