Default how to check internet history??

How do you check internet history? I know how to pull down the tool bar on the top of screen. But what if it has been cleared? Is there any way to still see what webpages were viewed? Thanks

Funny you should mention this, considering I'm trying to do the same thing also! Although the link doesn't help me as we use Firefox. My husband has been staying on the internet after I've gone to sleep for the past few weeks and I've been finding this very odd. So i went to check the history and its all deleted. I also checked last week and same thing. I mentioned to him that I was on some site last week and couldn't remember the name of it so i went into the history and couldn't find it cause the history was deleted and he said oh it clears itself after 20 days. Funny that, considering a week isn't 20 days long! So i'm dying to know what he's looking at that he feels he should be hiding from me!

I put a keylogger and spyware on my H's computer. We have a free one on the computer now called K9 web protection.

jo084, does anything else (other than his late night internet browsing) warrant your suspicion? Is it possible that he's looking at porn?

The rest of us, where have we reached and where are we headed?! We live in and run one of the most advanced nations in the world which boasts good virtue, and force our ways on other nations and we feel the need to spy on our own spouses; the ones with whom we took mutual oaths to be committed, loyal, devoted; why?! To eventually distrust and spy on?!

The internet has no nation. People lose themselves to the internet all the time. Said to say but the internet nearly cost me my marriage, myspace in general.

I'm not blaming the internet, it's only a tool. People seem to gain this bi-polar life style when it comes to the internet. I don't think more people are cheaters these days, I think it is just easier to find people to cheat with.

With that said, if someone have given you good enough reason to worry then I see no issues with looking into their actions. If they aren't doing anything then no harm, if they are you just found out.

For the record, I hacked into my wifes myspace around. She cheated on me once before with a guy on myspace and the signs were all there. I have zero regret doing it. In fact because of my actions my wife has given up all social interactions on the internet. She has deleted all profiles and given me free pass to check any time I wanted.

I hate to see what my life would have been like had I not found out. Knowledge is power IMHO.

You circumstance is very interesting!
It's one that involves policing!
Does she understand the precept of loyalty at this point in your marriage?
Does she believe that there is someone above you who she may be accountable to?
By-the-way, pardon me for asking so directly. I am trying to understand your current relationship with your wife.

My wife at this point completely understands loyalty. It's wierd to say but the past month has snapped her back into reality. She now noticing what she has and nearly lost. Before she had the attitude where she would cut of her nose to spite her face. She was so defencive and guarded that nothing I said or did made it through. In fact the more I showed her I loved her the more defencive she got. I know it might sound silly but the words remores, regret and guilt seem small when trying to describe how she feels now. I've never seen anyone change direction so quickly in my life.

As to your second question I am guessing you are speaking of God. Well we do believe in God and go to church from time to time. I'm not sure she has even thought about being judged by God. I know right now her biggest fear is facing the people she lied to. I've been in that position myself and I know it's not easy but she is holding her head up and making things right.

Oddly enough when I told my wife that I had hacked her accounts I expected her to go nuts on me. I was shocked at the out come.

To better explain where my wife and I are now. We are a work in progress. She knows I have lost all trust in her and she has to regain that trust. She knows it's going to be a hard road but is willing to become and open book to do so. To make things easier I have decided to take that path with her. We both have complete access to each others information. My biggest fear is that once I start policing her I wont stop. I'm afraid 5 years from how I will still be checking her email and phone. Because of that fear I often hold back checking up on her and putting my faith in her.

I can tell you that my wife and I get along better now they we every did. After getting the boys to bed we laid/sat on the bed and talked. And for the first time in a long time we talked about the future. Things are really good at this point, will it last? I hope so but only God knows such things. I do know I wouldn't be here typing this post if I hadn't hacked her accounts. I'm 100% sure I would be writing about how my divorce was going. Now am I suggesting every one start putting keyloggers or hacking their SO accounts? Nope. It's not my place to tell you if you should or shouldn't. I can see the good and bad in it and my guess is the way it is laid out has more to do with how your SO feels about it then how you feel about it. I knew before hand that I was going down a dark path doing what I did but I felt the need to know. I had enough signs to tell me something was wrong and I wanted to know what that something was. So before you follow my path think long and hard because doing this means you will 100% break the persons trust you do it to. You can go from the hero to villain in an instance. I guess what I am saying is, be per paired to sleep in the bed you made for yourself.

Hats off to you I am in the same situation with my husband although he has not deleted any profiles, but I do have free rain and a key logger on my computer as well. It is shameful to have to go through such lengths for piece of mind.

All I can say is just ask your husband bluntly about what you're feeling and why you want to spy on the computer. If you don't find anything, are you willing to tell him the truth that you spied on him and risk him not trusting you? Telling him you think he's cheating is better than sneaking around and finding out you're wrong and then breaking the bond of trust he may have for you. Just tell him what you want to know and although he may lie at least he'll know you know and then trust your gut feeling.

Hi Heartbroken,

If you really feel the need to monitor web activities there is a program called 'Webwatcher' which you can download. A freind of mine uses it to check on her kids activities and to block various websites because they are still quite young. 'Spymonitor' is another one which does pretty much the same thing.

It does seem sad though that you feel compeled to have to do this, but if it puts your mind at rest or confirms what you want to know I suppose it will be worth it.

Good luck.
