My girlfriend has an ipad she uses a lot, but her brother is tracking her and what she is viewing i believe. Is there a way so he doesn't view what websites she is on, so she can have her privacy? I think he may be using the router as an admin, and maybe a software to view what she is doing. any solution...?

Good Evening:

The thing that I would do first, if possible is to get into the router and change the username and password from the default of (usually 'admin' and change the password to something you and she both know, but the tracker does not. I believe that if you can change the password and the username that the admin user logs in with, that would help. You could also change the SSID of the network you use, or better yet, change the password to your network so that it is different then what it was, and that way, he could not connect to her network at all.

But, you could also ask her to ask her brother what his reason is for "tracking" her - There is no reason that anyone should be using someone's network without their knowledge - The way to stop this is to password protect your access point with a security key, and some routers have 2-3 different keys to choose from. If your device can connect using WPA, WPA2, or TKIP this is more secure then WEP.

Hope this helps ;)
