    Sorry if this question had been asked before, I had briefly skimmed the forums to see if anyone had posted anything similar and didn't see anything.

    But seriously. I'm sort of worried
    If you know what I mean.
    Because I don't pay my bill.

    Yeah, it lists all the pages you've been to and how long you spent on them.








    Only joking - it only lists the
    amount of data, not which dodgy sites you've been visiting :D

    No, it just shows data transfer and the kb usage and the date. I just checked my latest bill.

    And any ways...... according to US Laws (at least thats what I've heard) no institution is allowed to disclose information such as this via a public mode like bills!

    No, not really.
    My parental units have secretly (well, it's not so secret since I know) loaded this software on my computer that lets them see all the websites I visit. They check daily- they don't think I know. I do.

    So I'm confined to alternative routes, like the iPhone or the Wii browser.
    :-D

    I can just imagine it now:

    "What were you doing?"
    "Nothing, just playing with my Wii"

    Haha.

    Wow..I would have some fun with that...start loading up your history with lots of cult web-sites...like a ton of scientology pages, and then if they ask about it say you're very private about your religion and kindly ask them to stop suppressing you. You could freak them out in so many ways, which might be just desserts for the privacy invasion.

    Just remember to clear your cache etc on your iPhone after a session.

    Anyone with viable suggestions to circumvent such parental issues?

    Here is an idea! if its your computer just back up all your data and restore your comp to get the software off there! and the create an alias account that they won't know about and just use that one!

    I'm not so sure that proxy site will work for the OP. His parents might have used a keylogger... which would tell them everything that he TYPED, and what he CLICKED on.

    Also, it might not be a visible program. I've dealt with keyloggers that run as system services, invisibly.

    You know, if I am to ever become a dad, I would never install spyware on my family computer. What's the point? Who doesn't watch porn? It's part of the natural growing up process. As long as the kid's not addicted to it, it's fine. Installing spyware is like sending a message - "I don't trust you." It just doesn't help foster a healthy parent-child relationship IMO. :confused: Agree/disagree?

    Your parents won't know you're looking up porn on your iphone don't worry.

    all the att bill lists are
    the phone numbers of all your calls and texts

    and how many kb/mb of data you've sent received.

    Even if you look at the account online it only show's when you accessed data, and how much data you transfered.

    Your good to go a long as you clear your history on the phone. :cool:

    I completely agree, there has to be some trust between the parents and child for a healthy relationship. Otherwise, both parties end just trying to find some new way to circumvent the other.
