    Not sure if this is the right place, but I am typing it off a Mac Book :)

    I want to set my router to private so no one in my house hold can browse my internet history, not doing anything dodgy, just its a human right to have privacy..

    Can anyone let me know how to set my router so it doesn't track my browsing history?

    Thanks.

    Someone else might correct me - but routers don't record anything specific about browsing history. The router knows that your device is connected, but doesn't log details about where you browse.
    One suggestion - either keep your browser's history cleared, or use the browser's private mode.

    Your ISP or specific DNS providers can track you. Keep your browser history clear and don't change the DNS and you are good. Routers generally do not record what data goes through them other than connection details. Connection details are like what client is connected, signal stregnth, etc.

    Sounds a little dodgy that you said you're not doing anything dodgy... :D
