Do Wireless Routers Record Websites Visited?

It is common for wireless routers to provide users with the option to record the IP addresses of websites that connected devices visit, but this logging typically won't tell the website names themselves. Users can use an online address look-up service that converts IP addresses to host names. Third-party Web monitoring software is also available to provide the website names directly and to filter websites, if necessary.

IP address logging may not be enabled on all routers by default, but users can usually enable the service through their router's configuration portal. In addition to seeing the IP addresses of websites visited, users usually can also see the day and time of the visit and the source or device address that visited the website.
