BT hub privacy

Go to solution

Hi, I work from home and have just taken a let with a landlord who has BT hub. I always used to have my own Wi-fi, but am now using this as it is better reception. I am only visiting bona fide sites, but just wanted to ask the community, as have privacy concerns. If the bill goes to the landlord, can they see my browsing history (banks, work sites, email etc, urls I have visited and researched). I simply feel uncomfortable a bit like 'big brother' and it is stopping me from working without concern. It is an independent property, what info would go back to the landlord? Thank you.

Welcome to this user forum.

If the landlord has a BT Hub, and you are directly connected to the wireless from the home hub, then the landlord cannot see any activity.

Communityhelp (Private website) Lots of additional information and help.
You will need to be connected to your home BT Broadband connection to view it, or any links to it that I post on this forum.

Make sure that your computer is set not to share any files. That way even although you are on the landlords Homehub's network you will not be sharing your computer files.

If you are not sure how to do that, do an Internet search for Sharing files on your particular computer's operating system.

You may also want to set your computer as being on a public network even although you are connected to a private one.
