    I dont believe so, since your not using your phones browser. You could if you have a google account set up in such a way. But only you can access that history. Someone at your work would need your account info to access that.

    Your viewing history is localized to the browser you're using -- in this case the browser on the separate PCs. Nobody at work will be able to see how much time you've spent at the Hello Kitty and LOLCatz websites. :D

    Depends on the browser you're using. Most of them are under tools.

    You saying you don't want anyone at work to see your home's browser's history? Fine -- don't take your home PC to work.

    It depends on what you mean by "viewing history". Your browser will build its cache and history locally like normal, unless you have some sort of private browsing mode enabled, such as incognito mode for chrome. Also, flash-based websites tend to store data on your computer locally *outside* of the typical cache. So on the client side, yes.

    But if you mean will your work's server show a log of your connections to IPs you visit while connected via ad-hoc tethering to your 3G signal, the answer would be no. As long as you were completely disconnected from your work network. You would be bypassing the network altogether.

    Hope that answers your question

    When you start talking about "erasing" files stored locally on your computer, you start to enter a rocky area in computer hardware. My advice would be to keep your personal stuff personal and don't circumvent your work network to do things you wouldn't be proud of if you got caught. Keep home at home and work at work.

    A talented data recovery specialist can recover things that would blow your mind.

    I haven't used my work computer for anything.......I used my home computer for personal things....I just wanted to know if my personal viewing from my home computer would show up on my work computer in any way
