Is it possible/How do you monitor internet traffic at home?

 

My teenage son is going into private mode on the iPhone and I really would like to see the emails he is sending.

 

Thanks in advance.

1. Yes, you can monitor the traffic,

2. but not see his emails never, if he is smart.

To give advice is possible if is known which system and internet connection you are using. These can be very different. But I cannot understand, what gives You to see the traffic. If You are the owner, set up him allowed bandwidth, and thats all. Also You can block some IP's if it helps. I don't think so.

Hello, and thank you for the information.

 

Question - what did you mean by "if he is smart"? 

 

The device is an Arris NVG589, and the carrier is AT&T.

 

And I'm mostly interested in the email. I think he might be in some trouble and don't want to appear intrusive if my fears are unjustified.

 

Thanks again,

Christopher

It would be much simpler and more productive in the long run if you learned to talk to your kid. Just try to have an honest conversation with him, making sure he feels that you are on his side and he can entrust you with his thoughts. Otherwise, if you checked his e-mails and found something fishy, and presented him with that information, the negative impact of the erosion of the trust between you two might surpass the benefits of trying to help him. But hey, I'm no expert; do what you want to do.:)

Absolutely this. It's not a healthy situation if you are snooping on your kids correspondence surreptiously. If you have concerns then you should speak to him.
