    Browser History on a Wireless Router

    I'm connecting to the internet through a family member's wireless router down the street. The router is an ASUS RT-AC66U. Can he see my browser history through his router?

    He can't see your browser's history as that's local to your computer...
    But some routers keep an internal log of visited URL's ... so looking at that they could see what sites you've been to (but not what all you viewed)

    My router lets me know when someone signs on to the network.

    Depending on how he has everything set up, it is completely possible to trace anything and everything transmitted and received by your computer through his connection. The router itself may not store URLs or IP addresses, but since the equipment is physically under his control, he can place something between your computer and his connection to the Internet - and since you connect wirelessly, it would be between his router and the modem. This piece of equipment can log all activity that passes along the wire, and so he could theoretically trace what sites you go to and even read what's on the web pages sent back and forth.

    Please note all this is possible over an HTTP connection, which is what you use when connecting to JUB. For sites that use HTTPS, like banking websites, he can see the domain name of the URL you visit (like www.bankofamerica.com) but cannot see what was on the web pages sent back and forth because those are sent over a secure connection between you and the web server.

    Just know all of this is theoretically possible, but more than likely he doesn't have anything like this set up. Use at your own risk.

    There is an extension for firefox called HTTPS Everywhere. It converts any website that does not use https connection into secure one.

    ^ that's not quite correct. It only uses https everywhere where it is possible. Most websites do not support https.
