    Is there a way to turn on (web) logging on an account without turning on parental controls?
    Or is there way to turn on Parental Controls on an Administrator account?
    Also, do the logs show the date/time sites were visited?

    I realize an administrator could override any settings, and that's fine I just want to know if it can be done. I share my computer, and have been noticing "gaps" in the web history in both Chrome and Safari, and don't want to raise any alarms/suspicions by changing the account.

    Little Snitch or Glimmerblocker may be able to configure for that use.
    What's important to remember is open communication. This step may be seen as an irreparable breach of trust if handled poorly.

    it might simply be that they're being private, and that's fine (I can be that way myself sometimes) but if there is an issue, the date/time would tell me who it is, and then I would bring it up in a more indirect but caring mannor (probably just ask if they knew why there was a gap in the histories, and go from there or something) I don't like feeling like I'm sneaking but I remember what it was like to be young :).

    I'll check those out, thanks again.
