Viewing the Internet search terms

You can view all the search terms that your child has used on popular search engines, including Google and Yahoo.

The search activity report of your child provides the following details:

  • The search term that was used

  • The time the search was performed

  • The search engine that the child used

In Norton Family website, the search activities are indicated as follows:

What

Indicates the type of activity and the search engine that was used.

For example, if the child performs a search on Yahoo, this activity is marked as "Search - Yahoo".

Which

Indicates the search term that was used.

When

Indicates the time at which each search occurred.

If your child types any special characters such as @, &, !, #, or $ along with the search terms, the craigslist.org search engine often skips these characters before providing search results. Norton Family reports only the actual search terms that craigslist.org used for searching.
