    Is this possible? If they had remote access yes

    If so what are the possibilities? If they had remote access.

    Hacker? If you we're infected with a virus that monitored your activities or if the hacker hacked the dns servers your using they could see which what websites your visiting, or if they had hacked into your computer and had remote access they could view your history

    Police? They could supoena your ISP and see what websites you were visiting

    Your internet provider? Yes unless your using a vpn, tor etc.

    Etc.?

    TIPS:

    Use OpenDNS

    Always use a VPN or TOR

    Encrypt your hard drive

    Use BSD or Linux

    Set a bios password to stop physical attacks

    Never use the same username password or email on a website

    Use Firefox with privacy addons

    Make Firefox never record browsing history

    Is this possible?

    Yes it is possible only if you have Access to the computer direct or via remote access (remote requires user authentication). You can open browsers and use CTRL + H to view browsing history.

    Possibilities?

    If you have access and you open browsers, you can only see what sites have been browsed. You may not get the info entered/used on those websites. As these pages are generally secured with HTTPS and they expire usually when you close the website.

    Hacker?

    Hacker can steal info from that machine, but I am not sure about that.

    Internet provider?

    They have your browsing history and everything you do on their network is logged on their end. But they don't use/deploy/access those logs if there is nothing serious.

    Access to another computer is even legally permitted in certain cases. The development of IT technologies has led to a revolution in interpersonal communication. In the whole world, governments or government agencies and police prescribe the cases in which companies that provide telecommunications services must allow these agencies to access e-mail and other data of its users. There are other lawful solutions that can be applied in small businesses and other institutions, more of everything at the link below:: http://www.edecision4u.com/

    Lemme guess... PORN PORN PIRN PORN PORNjk, but no you can't, a hacker maybe but why would a hacker want to look at your history? Police no, Internet provider I don't think so but if you have a problem clear history and cache and cookies.

    I think I see why it was reported. If you were to do that.

    It would be invading the privacy of the person. I think

    the only way you could do that is, you would have to

    take access to the other computer. That is illegal without

    permission from the person.

    Your ISP cant especially see what your viewing, they are able to style of see what you acquire ie. if its a image or if its a video or music, yet they cant see the content fabric. they are able to regardless of the shown fact that song the IP adresses your computers pass to, which skill any web content you pass to. so which you may touch them for that information. you may setting up some keylogging application and song what they are typing, that way you recognize to the fullest how they are abusing your internet privelidges.
