Lets hope my parents never check the router history
Or they keep it cleared because one or both of them are on AshelyMadison
Yeah… I’ve looked up some weird shit out of pure curiosity these past few years .-. I would die of embarrassment
So all the times I went on illegal streaming websites, it wasn’t completely private? Fuck guess I’m going to prison
A majority of the population would be in jail if that was true lol
Millions of pirate ships would be sinking
**YOU WOULDN’T** STEAL A HAND **BAG**.
YOU WOULDNT DOWNLOAD A CAR
Unless it's that new BMW, you bet your fucking ass ill download those seat warmers
YOU **WOULDN’T DOWNLOAD** AN **NFT**
Yo im right clicking+save image on those mf's lmao
bob the bananaaa
You'd only be in any real trouble if you were the one pirating the movies. The worst thing that will happen for streaming is your internet provider notifying you to stop, and that's **if** they care
Yep. xfinity here, been using streaming websites for years, pirated one thing I couldnt find and got an email 2 days later saying I'd been a bad boy.
Funny story, so before I was as well versed in the ways of piracy as I am now (not great but I can make my way around things).
I tried torrenting cause i wanted to download doom eternal but steam unlocked took too long, I used utorrent (Ik Ik, don’t get on my ass about utorrent and steam unlocked ) and tried torrenting it for higher speeds.
It never actually worked and got blocked by xfinity. Coincidentally, we had a wifi outage in my area. My mom then later received an email saying that we’ve been naughty for pirating. Now I tried and tried the download 3-4 times. We also got 3-4 emails. My mom had thought they cut our Wi-Fi off bc we were pirating shit.
I got yelled at that night all because of that stupid Wi-Fi outage that happened hours after I torrented
Wdym by pirating movies, is it like you won't get in trouble if you watch stuff from a pirated site but dont download it, or does it mean that you will only get into trouble if you actually upload stuff so that others can download
It's the distribution that gets ya
Yeah, I use streaming sites every day, for hours at a time, and have never received a single notification. (AT&T) But I have received a few for torrenting shit.
There are more illegal things than streaming websites buddy....believe me, there are things even in the normal web which are too cursed to visit even with a VPN.
What kind of things are too cursed to visit with a VPN but not enough to put it in the DeepWeb?
Do you remember r/spacedicks?
Someone save me the click, what is it?
It's long gone now so it's nothing. But it used to be the single most heinous sub in existence
Now I need to know
Can confirm. And unfortunately websites like that stay up because cops and others are too busy working on the actually horrific sites
Plenty of those sites are run by the cops. Cut out the middle man and just start logging IPs yourself.
As far as I know, browsing illegal streaming services isn't illegal in the US, but downloading from them is. Correct me if I'm wrong
I think the act of uploading is actually where you fall into doing illegal stuff. Always take, never seed if you are paranoid. That's the greedy risk free way to pirate stuff.
As is the pirate way, always take and never give (except to your crew).
yes, but literally nobody cares to look.
browse freely, homies.
just in case, how would one clear this?
Thanks man gonna try this really fast. When i will get free award drop i will 100% give it to ya
You underestimated the number of people with free awards
I do not even get free rewards.
I was gonna give you an award but, the button isn’t there???
You have to go into Reddit Coins to access your free award, they took away the button that used to be there that automatically took you to the free award
if this isn‘t your local ip check ipconfig in cmd, also you might have to ad a / in your browser after the ip so it‘s trying to go to that url and not browse google for that ip
And if the login info isn’t on the router, sadly, try:
Or some variation of that with capitalization on the first letters.
My neighbor’s old router was literally just admin/password to get into the wireless router.
Also, once you get in that shit: PLEASE fucking change the password to something hard.
Just changed my password to “something hard” and got hacked. Thanks mate
The only internet provider available in one of my housing areas set it to that. They even included specific instructions: DO NOT CHANGE LOG IN. Most people did of course.
I generally just change the default name to a personal one and keep the router password though. Someone might be able to figure out my regular passwords but NO ONE is figuring out cheA12vyxZZip98ghBNaqbt
I haven't even memorized the giant crackhead password on the back of my router and feel like it's solid enough to not mess with. If they've got access to the inside of my house, they have access to more valuables than my wifi anyways
Nice try, russian hacker
Nice try, indian hacker
not every router defaults to that, it's pretty much guaranteed to be 192.168.something.something, last 2 sets of numbers depend on the manufacturer and model of router
Open commandprompt, type "ipconfig /all" and see what your default gateway is, that's likely your router.
Shoot the wifi box
there is a 98% chance that your home router does not log your network traffic.
there is a 99.8% chance that the person that purchased the router has never logged into it after it was set up.
If you want to hide your browsing from third parties, you can use a VPN.
Web browsers like Opera have a free VPN service built into them that you can turn on and off.
Its not a vpn, just a proxy
They brand it as a VPN, and the button to turn it on is labeled VPN.
If I called it something other than what it was labeled it would just get confusing for people.
A lot of people can't tell the difference.
What is the difference?
While a proxy works with a single app or site, a VPN secures your network traffic.
A proxy server is used mainly for HTTP/HTTPS. whereas a VPN can be used for any traffic.
Proxy is just a manual VPN. It will only work when set up, and for the software it was set up on. You will need to know the IP/Port of the server you want to redirect your traffic to.
VPN does it all automatically.
Yep, one of the few things a VPN help with.
You'd need router access my friend.
Googling the part # then "default password" 9/10 times does the trick
most of them generate a random password now and have it written on the router
Some AT&T routers don’t log the history.
…so I’ve read.
Unless you're doing anything illegal or dangerous there's no reason to worry. Just remember not to browse on work devices (incognito mode won't help).
It’s more that teen’s parents probably don’t want to look
Unless you have helicopter parents, like me
My parents did :(
Oof that sucks
mentally insane parents
It's mainly to hide porn from boomer parents who aren't tech savvy.
If you're doing illegal shit the city, state, or feds might be interested in, there is always a way for them to find it.
Me as a kid creating another email adress and google account so it's a different history
Good old days
had two computers right next to eachother growing up... boomer mom got mad and took the power cord from the monitor on both computers.... (not realizing it was the same power cord for the tower), so as long as I put everything back how it was before she got home (which was like at 8pm - yay for being latch-key kid)... never got caught.
My mom took the phone cord for the dial up internet out of the computer when she went to bed, so I just took the one out of the rotary phone and put it back around 4am before she woke up.
So just to clarify:
You had 2 computers and 4 identical power cords. Your mom took 2 of those cords but you could still use the other two to power a monitor and a tower.
Yea that’s the only thing that makes sense. I had to think about it for a minute as well.
My mom did the same but took the power cable for both the tower and the monitor, not realizing that power cable is a standard power cable and both TVs in the house used that power cable. Then she just took the whole monitor into her bedroom and locked the door (she had replaced her doorknob with a proper pin-tumbler locking doorknob). Then I taught myself how to slip latches. I was a persistent little shit
Hey Bob, been a while.
There is no way to make finding you completely impossible. What you *can* do though is to make finding you very complicated and time-consuming. But you will need a bigger gun than just incognito mode. Even better - a whole arsenal💀
2 incognito pages?
Tor AND a VPN can do wonders
Those two are included in a list of "bigger guns" I mentioned. They make investigating you for doing something minor not really worth it, because it will take months. For something really wrong - like human trafficking - they'll still dig you up from the ground
The guy who ran Silk Road was found because the FBI was investigating him and he had his laptop open in Starbucks. Why tf would you do it in an open area(he did deserve to get arrested fuck that guy)
he also used his own real email address...
And used the name he used on the darknet for something on the clearnet.
False, he used his own email on the clearnet in a shrooms growing forum to promote SilkRoad. It was "frosty". He deleted the post, but the website retained his credentials.
Coz public wifi makes it impossible to track you. He was dumb to open it in public should've done whatever he was doing in background.
Genuine idiot asking here: don't those two sort of cancel each other out? Like isn't it best to use one or the other, but not both at once?
There is nothing illegal about accessing TOR in most countries so no need VPN and TOR. Some places Ban Tor so a VPN helps gain access.
Tor hides your internet activity. VPN hides the fact that you're using TOR.
yea better then nothig still findable
Nope you can just stop carrying electronic devices
He ain’t lying. It’s so dang easy to record where you go on the internet. Just download wireshark or something like that and boom, you can see what someone is doing.
Dont you have to install it on your dns server?
How much are the FBI paying you anyway
So you're saying, for example, they would only see that I'm on Pornhub, but they wouldn't see that I'm looking at big titty futa POV sissy trainer hypno VR compilations.
Awesome, now *no one* will ever know my secrets.
Or gay hentai cock
Who even cares about stuff that vanilla these days anyway?
Gotta pay for your food and your cell though
That's only when you are on sites with https though, right?
http and the rest and everyone can see what you're doing, looking, and downloading.
This guy knows what's up
I don't get it, if the feds are interested in it, they can just look it up themselves??
I don't care about my Internet provider knowing I watch octopus hentai porn. It's my wife that worries me
I am dousing my router in holy water
The only thing the router and ISP and even the CIA can see is the domain of the site you’re on, HTTPS completely encrypts all your activity and all the packets sent from the moment they leave your network card.
Even though this is just a _bad_ meme, I doubt that most routers have logs enabled by default. Even then it would probably be just a cheap DNS-based logging thing (I doubt the CPU in those things would be capable to handle deep packet inspection, which would be useless anyway because HTTPS).
I was gonna mention that. This level of logging and monitoring requires enterprise level devices and software worth thousands of dollars and it still would only log the bare minimum.
this makes me happier
Wankers lesson #1
Anonymous window is for keeping YOUR pc clean, not the internet
Reality is often disappointing
Hmm. Maybe I'll go eat a banana.
No one tell him about the radiation.
you’re gonna die of radiation poisoning in 2 days
I don’t even go into incognito mode to look at pr0n. I use it to look up questionable things or things I don’t want on my local history
That's why gotta use data
Yeah, I don’t watch porn, but this is what I do if I need to search something weird
Like searching how big a whales vagina is! It's 8 inches to 2 feet or 0.203 meters to 0.63 meters (sorry if my metric system measurement is off, I'm American.)
A true American would have equated the size to football fields or dishwashers.
A whales vagina isn't THAT big.
It's about 1/10 of a dishwasher
oh i thought using data or wifi was the same…? bc both are still internet providers right ???
yeah but your parents can't check your history when you use data
Is this true?
yes, your internet provider is always able to see your online activities
Like they say: "privacy is an illusion"
Not just the ISP. Your home router that you're connecting to can log the info as well.
Damn they’re about to see some fucked up porn man
Plot twits: They start fapping to it
I’m gonna have to erase a lot of stuff. A lot. Of stuff.
don't know if you can buddy xD
Old routers used to log last 250 entries per device... Not sure what it is these days.
The data is sent to cloud
i.e. someone else's computer
They can’t if you use a VPN. All they can see are encrypted VPN request.
The huge majority of the routers won't be log anything related to users history, this is bullshit.
Some home routers have parental controls and yes can show accessed sites, but this is an special feature.
In business routers you can find all types of traffic inspection.
Yes thwy can “see” your visited sites, but nobody at ur internet provider is looking trough the logs. Im guessing they are kept for logging reasons not to spy on you, atleast outside the US💀💀
In the US the ISP hold your data for years and LE can get your history. Same goes with cell phone location data and what not.
But it’s not like “hey john, I’m kinda bored let’s check this kid’s search history” right?
Bro there gonna regret it if they watch mine💀
Incorrect. A VPN obfuscates that data and all they see are request to the vpn provider. If your vpn doesn’t use its own dns then get a better vpn.
And in that case, your VPN can see the domains you're visiting. So make sure you trust your VPN provider.
Yep, by monitoring user activity through your router, you can be a bit more discreet about it without users knowing about it. Your router stores all sites users visit – even ones that were accessed through Incognito Mode.
Can your parents see your router history though, if they wanted to? Asking for a friend
Depends on the router, and permissions.
So what can I do? I don't want at&t knowing the shit I'm into
Pretty sure this is deactivated by default but even if it was activated you could get around it by using a VPN
all the kids who didnt know this are shitting bricks rn.
That's why I don't use incognito at all. So what if they know I watch porn. As long as I'm not into some weird shit, they can't hold anything against me
Must be nice. not tobe into weird shit.
what's the weird shit we're talking 'bout here?
i don't even know how deep i am anymore
You every check too see if your door was locked 9 times in a row
yeah i'm into weird shit
Don’t give a shit nobody important will know
Yeah but who checks that anyway?
POV: The kid password protects the router cause their boomer parents don't know shit and could care less to learn.
Welp guess im fucked if they find out the weird shit i have been watching for the last 5 years
Most of them delete after about a year, because what's the point of storing endless raw data that no one will ever look at. That's if it does at all, which most don't by default. Beyond that it may be stored on huge servers owned by your ISP but again that's eventually overwritten too. If you've gotten away with it for five years then don't sweat it. The only person who cares enough to go digging is you.
Oh dear god
They boutta see 5 categories of hentai right there
slow but the most secure and your data is not sold by vpn companies
Just the exit node being sniffed by unknowns
It's not gonna stop me from searching big booty Latina in a sexy lingerie
Op giving anxiety to everyone here lmao
me who uses tor
Me who doesn't hide it to assert dominance
Me who watches porn with my parents
Me who makes porn with my parents
Me when I was 13
Just use cellular data
Just use mobile data
The guy who uses a vpn
when you realise many vpns log the traffic you visit
And then sells the data to make up for those low low VPN rates and its tied directly to your name.
What about using the brave tor mode and vpn combo
that makes you anonymous. for additional security use a virtual machine
Or an amnesic OS booted and running off a thumb drive. Something like Tails OS.
Nothing is stored on the drive, everything runs on your RAM and it gets cleared once it shuts down because RAM is volatile. Also, Tor is the default on tails and it gives a bunch of warnings in your face if you try to use the regular browser.
If you're looking at normal porn and not kiddie porn you have nothing to worry about. Typing in specific key words like "Nuke's, kiddie porn, or any other thing else" that your government is heavily against will flag the internet provider which in turn are supposed to send the information to who ever is in charge of all that. Which then usually they will watch you and actually pay attention to what you're doing online for quite awhile.
As a totally unrelated question: how can i clean my router history?
Burn the house down
Edit: jokes aside, you can simply login to the router's web and clear the system log. I'm sure that it doesn't store any URLs and webpages specifically.
No I just don’t want my parents to find out I’m watching porn and/or looking up things vaguely related to sex that I couldn’t ask them for an answer too
Aaand that's where the Reddit app comes in.
How does reddit app help?
Incognito + cellular data = unstoppable
Might be an r/whooosh, but just in case I’d like to inform you that that doesn’t really work
I’d rather not have known that
The trick is to wear it like a badge, I’ve looked at some nasty shit that I’m not proud of, but I’ll own up to it when the time comes
What's the point of incognito mode when your internet provider can still see it
I want TRUE incognito mode. Nothing you search is saved anywhere
You want to go down that weird rabbit hole? Well now you can! With true incognito mode nothing you search is saved anywhere
Your internet provider nor the government can see it! Hackers? Don't have to worry! While your in true incognito mode no hacker can access your computer
Viruses wont even work. Nothing you do is a traceable
And better yet
Not all routers have the ability to log history. My spectrum router that I get with my internet package does not. The ISP probably has logs though. I doubt they would share those logs with anyone requesting the information due to privacy issues.
But yes, your parents can track your shit even if you use incognito if their router has logging capabilities.
