Your Wi-Fi router records all your browsing history on its log page. Depending on your router, you can find basic information or detailed information.
To get this information, you must log into your router.
In this guide, I’ll show you how to check the browsing history on your Wi-Fi router.
The browsing history can be found under the System log or Administrative Event log tab, which may be located under system settings or advanced settings, depending on the router.
Without further ado, let’s get started!
Before you can check your history on your router, you need to know the router’s username, password, and default IP address.
This information is available on the back of your router, usually on a sticker. You can also request your ISP to send you the details if you are using a modem router from your ISP.
You might have changed the default username and password if you are a privacy-conscious individual. You will be required to use the new logins to access your router.
Some routers won’t have the default IP address indicated. Nonetheless, most routers use 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1, or 192.168.100.1 as the default IP address.
You can also get the default IP address from your device if you are connected to the router. On Windows, launch the command prompt, type ipconfig, and enter.
Scroll to the connected adapter and note the default gateway, the router’s default IP address.
On Mac, go to Network settings, then Advanced, and check the active connection (Wi-Fi or LAN) under the TCP/IP tab for your router’s gateway IP address.
Some routers won’t display the login page via Wi-Fi. You must connect your computer with an ethernet (LAN) cable.
If you have all the above, proceed as follows;
Unlike your browser, the router presents the logs in a basic manner. You will need network technical skills on some routers to know what is happening.
For instance, you might need to map the IP address or reverse look-up. Nonetheless, modern routers present the logs in an understandable manner.
The “Default Gateway” is the Wi-Fi router that connects to your device, and the IP address next to it is the router’s IP address.
Checking your browser history on your router is a simple task. All you need to know is the router’s default IP address, username, and password.

The username and password should be on the back of the router. If those were changed by him you would need to ask him for the login details. You won’t be able to do this remotely.

The generic login that comes with a new router is “admin” for the username, and “password” for the password.

How do you log into the router ?

The username and password should usually be on the backside of the router.
If that doesn’t work, you may need to factory-reset the router. There should be a small reset button in the back.
