Is Your Husband Watching Porn on the net?
Sorry guys, but I am going to give up some tactics for your wives to use to track your internet usage. If you have been viewing pornography, then stop and you will have nothing to worry about. Otherwise, continue at your own risk and worry that she might read this site and discover your secrets.
Ladies, you don’t have to be super tech savvy to deploy some of these tactics to discover your husband’s use of pornography on the internet. You will have to know your way around the computer a bit. First off, you need access the computer you think he is using to do this. If he has his own laptop or desktop you will need about 45 minutes to an hour to check out the computer. I won’t get into privacy issues here, so you need to decide that on your own.
Once you have his computer go straight to the cookies, forget the internet history. Chances are his browser automatically deletes that when shut down, but cookies are deleted manually. Check the cookies out for obvious websites and access dates. If you find nothing here now you will have to try one of these two solutions that will cost you a few bucks, but get you the answers you need.
The first solution uses a program to scan all the image files on the computer hard drive. You will see all the images that the internet browser has loaded up even if he has deleted them. This program takes some time to do its job, but you should know if any pornographic images have been loaded up on that computer. It comes preloaded on a USB stick drive. You should get a hold of his computer and insert the USB drive in and run the program. The program is called Discover it and you can purchase it on Amazon by clicking here. Also, I have heard success with the device: KJB Security PC401 Spy Cobra PC Monitoring Software Deluxe.
The next solution would be to install a program on his computer or smart phone, that will run undetected in the background. This program is not an internet filter, but will monitor the internet sites he visits.
You can set the program up to either email or text you when he visits a pornographic site. You will get the notice within a minute of the visit and you will then know what site was visited. This program is called Savii accountability and I have found it to be very accurate with timely notification. I have edited this post because Savii is no longer available. I do however recommend using a software called Covenant Eyes. Covenant Eyes can be installed on any computer and smart phone (iPhone or Android). What it does is monitor the internet sites that are visited and ranks them based on a rating system created by Covenant eyes. You will automatically receive an email report weekly or you can run a report on demand on the covenant eyes website. If he does any internet searches for porn or visits a porn site, covenant eyes will log those and preserve them for your review, even if he is good at managing his internet tracks.

I am sure there are many other ways to discover pornography usage on a particular computer, but I will recommend only these methods because I have tried them out myself and can vouch for their effectiveness.
Another point I want to make to those who decide to go through this process is to have a plan before you start. Get your resources lined up ahead of time before you go through his computer and install anything. Decide what you are going to do with the data once you get it. If you don’t have a plan and follow through with your findings, then don’t attempt it.
Here are some questions to ask yourself before you get going. How will you get access to his computer without drawing attention? What will you say to him regarding the way you found out about his usage? Will you reveal how you found out? Can you bring up the subject matter without accusations & highly charged emotions? Are you willing to work through this with him and walk with him instead of telling him to fix himself with an ultimatum?
I wish you the best of luck while doing your recon work.
