How To Check History On Computer For Porn

If you think someone is viewing porn on your computer, you may want to learn how to check the history on a computer for porn. When you visit a website, your computer automatically saves a copy to make it easier to load the site if you visit it again. If someone uses your computer to view porn, you can check the history and temporary Internet files, or cache, to see what sites they visited.

To check history on computer for porn, you will need:

  • Computer with Windows 7 or Vista
  • Web browser
  1. Open a new web browser window. Popular web browser programs include Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. If you have more than one browser installed on your computer, you should check the history for porn on each one individually.
  2. Press "Ctrl" + "H" to open the history. This will work in most browsers. If it does not, you can look for an Internet history option under the "View" or "Tools" menus.
  3. Read through the Internet history. Look for site titles that look like the names of porn sites. You can also search keywords that might indicate porn in the computer history, such as "XXX," "porn" or "porno." If you can't find anything, move on to checking the temporary Internet files.
  4. Click the "Start" button. Open the "Control Panel" and click "Appearance and Personalization," then click "Folder Options." Select the "View" tab, check the "Show hidden files and folders" box, and click "OK."
  5. Open a Windows Explorer window by pressing the Windows key and "E." Click the address bar and type in "C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\" and click "Go" to open the temporary Internet files folder, which contains copies of viewed web pages.
  6. Search through the folder to check the history on the computer for porn websites.

Tips:

  • It's easy to erase the history on the computer to hide porn. If the history and cache are empty, that may be a clue that someone erased them recently in an attempt to hide porn.
