Did you ever wonder if there was a way to track someone’s internet history without them knowing? Here we will go through the details of what trackers are and how they track information and data. Then we’ll cover some steps and other things you should be aware of. If done correctly, no one will know you sent any trackers and your target won’t even realize they’re being monitored or that something is out of the ordinary.
There are different kinds of trackers that work in different ways, but for this tutorial we will focus on trackers that aren’t obvious. These trackers can be used to keep track of IP addresses, keywords searched, timestamps to images/websites , and track a target’s location. Also, trackers will work on all major operating systems that track someone’s location, so regardless of what kind of computer your target is using they can still be monitored.
Now you might be wondering why people would want to track browsing history.
Reasons For Spying On Someone’s Browsing History
There are many reasons to track someone’s internet history. The most common law enforcement reason is to track down criminal activity. Businesses may want to track an employee’s search history if the company owns a trade secret and wants to find out who might have leaked it. Parents often track their children’s computer use, but also know that some kids today don’t allow parents access so this is a way for parents to secretly track their child without them knowing. Of course, if you have a cheating spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend you can track their search history as well, but I’m sure everyone knows about these options already.
The good news is that there are open-source trackers available online that work even on systems with no internet connection at all.
Best Browsing History Tracking Techniques
There are literally hundreds of trackers out there that you can use to keep track of someone else’s information or activity, but we have chosen some trackers that require no installation and are also free. They also do not require the user to be online for them to work.
1) HTTP Everywhere. It’s a browser app (for Google Chrome and Firefox), which automatically forces your internet traffic through its proxy server. Only drawback: you can’t use it on networks with https enabled, such as bank connections.
2) Ghostery is another way of hiding your URL tracks by avoiding scripts and files associated with social media and other trackers that may try to follow you around in order to show better ads or gather data about your browsing habits. However, unlike HTTP every, this does work even on https enabled network connections because it blocks scripts at the firewall level instead of just in the browser itself.
3) Finally we have spying apps, which is the best choice for some, but it’s also the one that gets you into trouble if you don’t know what you’re doing. For example, most antivirus (even free ones) will detect spying apps as viruses, and right they are. However if you can get around this by using root mode on your android device or jailbreaking your iPhone then it’s pretty much safe to use. If not, keep in mind that anything transmitted through these apps goes through their server which means privacy isn’t 100%. It is however completely anonymous unless of course someone manages to access their servers.
4) A way similar to #3 but more permanent is using VPN services instead of third party apps because they encrypt all data sent to your phone.
If you want to spy on someone’s browsing history and all of the above seems like too much trouble for you, then honestly it would be easier and safer if you just confront them with your suspicions.
