I've got my own PC, and also my own tablet. And I use the house's wifi. They don't have access to my PC or tablet, or google account etc.. Can they see my internet history any way, such as on the wifi admin account or something? Thanks

Yes, one can check your internet history

Some routers can store internet activity and your parents could see what your history, or they could even just go on your tablet and search it themselves. You can also use a vpn so that if they had websites blocked you can bypass them and make sure they dont see what you do. But my best guess is just to use incognito mode so your history isnt stored on your actual device since i doubt your parents would have the time to install a program that logs it or even know how to view it without actually going on your device

Do you have something to hide from them?

I do not think your parents can see your internet history from the WiFi admin. facility.

ONLY if they are network skilled but if it goes over their network, they can see it. HTTPS pages are encrypted but still, they can see where you are going. Pornhub for example, it encrypted but they could know you went there. You can use a VPN and hide that. But then you look suspicious.

Since most parents (well north of 95%) are not network skilled, the answer is no.

Yes, they could see your network traffic. Erasing your history will only erase it from your devices, but it doesn't prevent others from seeing your network traffic. Look up what Wireshark is and what it can do. It is a very good and free tool to analyze a network. It is useful in diagnosing network issues, but it can also be used to monitor the network. Of course, your parents would need to have a decent understanding of computer networks to properly use this tool.

Whether or not they actually spy on you is a different thing.

Yes. I used to analyze the data on networks.

Yes they absolutely can. Very easy, but your parents may not know how.
