    Hey everyone just got my Apple iPhone 4s yesterday and I love it! I knew siwtching from Android was a good idea!

    So anyways, Im on sprint, Im 14, and my dad owns the sprint account. Is it possible for him to check my history, like what I search on safari? Is there a way for him to like go on sprint website, or pull up my history in ANY way?

    Thanks!

    PS. This may include what you may be thinking about. Being honest here. Thanks for the help!

    Yeppers. As the main account holder, you can see everything dealing with the account. ;)

    So he can see my history from like sprint's website easily? He doesn't have to like go out of his way to try and get my web history, he could be browsing on sprints website on his account and come across it?

    Are you sure Roof? Can anyone see his browsing history without going on his iPhone. If it wasn't deleted that is. :)

    Doesn't every father know his 14 year old son looks at questionable websites?

    On AT&T you can only see the time the data went through, and how many KB it was.

    I don't know. I don't think they can see the exact transfers.

    He will be able to see text messages time date & # sent or received from but not the content
    You can also pull up photo messages. Sprint stores them for 3 months, so I wouldn't send/receive anything you don't want your father seeing.
    I havnt found a way to see what is browsed in safari, just the amount of data transferred.

    Btw: in my original post/reply... It was my evil side posting, as I was just joking with the OP. I don't think there is a way to view browser history :D

    I thought you were being serious and I was a little surprised to see that.

    Lax, if your dad is tech savvy and snoopy, you might want to use 3G rather than WiFi (if you guys share WiFi). There is a PC program that allows you to see all of the websites that are being visited from any device that is on your WiFi network. I tested it out and it took me less than 30 minutes to get it up and running. Then I watched on my PC as I loaded sites on my iPhone, and sure enough the addresses popped up in real time. You do not need direct access to their computer, nor do you need their password. You just need the IP for their computer/iPhone. And it's easy to do a scan of your network to find out what that is.

    He probably doesn't know how to do that and I wouldn't worry about it if he's not really good with computers. But either way, you should be good to go if you're on 3G and want to be really cautious.

    www.opendns.com

    One of the greatest websites any parent should know how to use.

    If you are 14 it's time to man up and take responsibility for your actions. I have a 15year old and you bet I check his usage. I pay for it.

    I don't mean to be the stick in the mud here, but are we helping a 14-year old hide information from his parent? I must be confused and missing something.

    I don't have a 14-year-old boy, but if I did I think I'd have to be delusional to think he wasn't looking at porn.

    You are one of my favorites on this forum so I say this with respect and caution: if you did have a 14-year old boy you wouldn't want a bunch of tech-savvy Apple weenies like us aiding to the delinquency of your minor.

    While the history is difficult to retrieve, it is not impossible to motivated parent. I don't own any special tools or software. But I could get it.

    Let me share a quick story about kids and phones. I used to own a chain of Halloween costume stores. Teenage girls for whatever reason like to hit the dressing rooms in groups. A group of teenaged boys held their phones, with cameras clicking away over the door of the dressing rooms. I physically took the phone from the boys and told them they could reclaim them with a parent or the police.

    One parent came ready to fight. One came with an officer shouting I stole their phones. I too had made a report. The officer told them that he would review the pics and make a determination on who was in trouble. One phone had a top-less girl's photo. That's child pornography and the account holder is now in voilation of possession. The officer confiscated that phone in agreement with the parents so there was no chance of it being passed on. Or in the officer's words, distribution of child porn. He said that even though it could be deleted, it was there in data form.

    To make a long story short (too late, right?) we should never offer solutions to someone, especially a child, on how to hide or feel confident he can surf for porn. You don't know what they will see, save or forward. It's dangerous.
