    No, OpenDNS does not track websites, but DNS lookups. This is a big difference.

    Your Stats would be where you see which domains are looked up from your network, assuming your IP is kept updated. For a new user, you may wait 3-24 hours for your first stats to appear.

    Be aware that the logs don't only show websites visited. They show websites that your IP requested connection attempts for... so you may be misled. 

    For example, if i want to check the latest sports scores I may enter "www.whatsthescore.com". If that site happens to have ads for Facebook, it's quite possible that my logs will show connections attempted to Facebook, along with a myriad of other sites from ads, embedded links, trackers, etc.

    So be cautious interpreting what you see. In this example, you shouldn't scold me for visiting Facebook, as I never when there.

    Still more vexing is that browsers may "prefetch" links for sites you never chose to view, yet these connections would appear in your stats. And that's all assuming your machine is infection free.
