I_likeIceSheets

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


StreetGlassShower

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.


neighborhood-karen

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


BOLTz_

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


SuperSMT

It's the distribution that gets ya


BL4CK-S4BB4TH

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.


CosmicCosmix

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.


Extaupin

What kind of things are too cursed to visit with a VPN but not enough to put it in the DeepWeb?


Cat_Proctologist

Awsomedude0361

Now I need to know


CreatureWarrior

Can confirm. And unfortunately websites like that stay up because cops and others are too busy working on the actually horrific sites


EarlGrey_Picard

Plenty of those sites are run by the cops. Cut out the middle man and just start logging IPs yourself.


Bimancze

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


RustyPoetatoes

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.


Crono2401

As is the pirate way, always take and never give (except to your crew).


MrRazzio

yes, but literally nobody cares to look. browse freely, homies.

only_crank

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


Petah_Futterman44

And if the login info isn’t on the router, sadly, try: Username: admin Password: password 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.


Funnellboi

Just changed my password to “something hard” and got hacked. Thanks mate


gettogero

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

hardrivethrutown

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


roadkilled_skunk

Open commandprompt, type "ipconfig /all" and see what your default gateway is, that's likely your router.


1_hele_euro

Shoot the wifi box


skilriki

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.


epicpotatoe_

Its not a vpn, just a proxy


skilriki

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.


MangledSunFish

A lot of people can't tell the difference.


YareYareDazeWasTaken

What is the difference?


xbftw

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.


Zeraw420

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.


Extaupin

Yep, one of the few things a VPN help with.


OstentatiousMusings

You'd need router access my friend.


Futuramoist

Googling the part # then "default password" 9/10 times does the trick


THSeaQueen

most of them generate a random password now and have it written on the router


garzaculta

Some AT&T routers don’t log the history. …so I’ve read.


zakpakt

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).

Good old days


onyxblack

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.


duotoned

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.


Comprehensive-Ad3963

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.


Misha-Nyi

Yea that’s the only thing that makes sense. I had to think about it for a minute as well.


TheIronSoldier2

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


Loli-is-Justice

Hey Bob, been a while.


notveryAI

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💀


inhale_my_buttcrack

2 incognito pages?


Hazm4t_

Tor AND a VPN can do wonders


notveryAI

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


shaggypoo

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)


[deleted]

he also used his own real email address...


StreetGlassShower

And used the name he used on the darknet for something on the clearnet.


flyr2k6

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.


A_random_zy

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.


eriniseast

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?


Christbasher27

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.


theskankingdragon

Tor hides your internet activity. VPN hides the fact that you're using TOR.

Fahad97azawi

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.


FormNo5092

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).


Fahad97azawi

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.

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.)


Boiling_Frustration

A true American would have equated the size to football fields or dishwashers.


Puzzleheaded-King971

A whales vagina isn't THAT big. It's about 1/10 of a dishwasher


blvckskirts

oh i thought using data or wifi was the same…? bc both are still internet providers right ???


FuckYouClocks

yeah but your parents can't check your history when you use data


mrniceguy268

Is this true? https://youtu.be/awuElqSCefk


MrJokemanPhD

yes, your internet provider is always able to see your online activities


Beautiful_Bass_9484

Like they say: "privacy is an illusion"


MavDrake

Not just the ISP. Your home router that you're connecting to can log the info as well.


Marqueso-burrito

Damn they’re about to see some fucked up porn man


bob_the_banannna

Plot twits: They start fapping to it


MrJokemanPhD

that too


mrniceguy268

MrJokemanPhD

don't know if you can buddy xD


MavDrake

Old routers used to log last 250 entries per device... Not sure what it is these days.


harakiri-man

The data is sent to cloud


IwantaPKM

i.e. someone else's computer


PAROV_WOLFGANG

They can’t if you use a VPN. All they can see are encrypted VPN request.


Lysergic-D

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.


Erik_Javorszky

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💀💀


MavDrake

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.


oli43ssen2005

But it’s not like “hey john, I’m kinda bored let’s check this kid’s search history” right?


Toofani_Gamer

Bro there gonna regret it if they watch mine💀


PAROV_WOLFGANG

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.


snpi

And in that case, your VPN can see the domains you're visiting. So make sure you trust your VPN provider.


MavDrake

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.


MrDitkovichNeedsRent

Can your parents see your router history though, if they wanted to? Asking for a friend


OSUfan88

Depends on the router, and permissions.

youcannotbanchippee

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.

the-weekly-toaster

What about using the brave tor mode and vpn combo


Cau5t1c_ap3

that makes you anonymous. for additional security use a virtual machine


LowDopamineHuman

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.


Mrman_23

Shit


General_Zera

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.

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 Its free!


java_brogrammer

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.
