I'm looking for one step beyond the general parental controls by level. I want to see a list of all sites accessed by device so I can watch my kids internet usage by site and by amount of time. I've looked everywhere but only suggestion I've found is to buy a 2nd level router. I'm not opposed to paying by month or by year but I paid a lot for an Orbi mesh system and don't want to spend more with no guarantee it will do exactly what I want. Most sites and products I've found only seem to filter - I want to see where they are visiting.
I don’t know how to do that, but I suppose it depends on what devices you are using. If windows computer, Microsoft Family will tell you all searches, sites, and time spent. If Apple Family with Restrictions enabled, you can only see history with dates (no times), but if you set the default search agent to google in Safari, with Google smart search enabled, you can sign into your child’s google account and access their full history through google account, including times. Also if you have androids, google account activity will tell you all dates, times, sites, even which apps were accessed on google devices and at what time. We have all 3 OS and I’m sort of doing a combination of the 3 I just described. With Apple restrictions, I just found some not so great search history that was thankfully blocked from my 9 year old, and because he was signed into safari with his google account, I was able to pull up his google account activity on the computer and see exactly what time he searched. Busted. Good luck!
