    Hi all,

    I'm suspicious of my partner after discovering they used 'private browsing' on Safari. I know, I should trust them but my gut's telling me something isn't right so I'd like some re-assurance.

    I've tried looking for the DNS cache in Terminal by entering: dscacheutil -cachedump -entries Host

    But it comes up with: Unable to get details from the cache node

    Is there a way to get round that so it displays the site's visited?

    Cheers :)

    That's the point of Private Browsing.... to keep it private! No, you can't search the Private Browsing history, because there is none saved to search.

    Technology is a poor substitute for having a healthy relationship.

    If you have a router in the house, you can turn on logging in most of them

    Is this because you want to view and enjoy the same adult sites you suspect that your partner enjoys, or do you want to know if s/he is cheating on you by going to dating websites?

    Private browsing is... private. You may get to see something that you didn't want to see, and then you can't un-see it afterwards.
