Can the WiFi owner see what I’m browsing?

Yes, in the U.S., they have both the right and ability to monitor your online activity.

Two important caveats:

  1. The owner must notify you that you are subject to monitoring. This is typically done via a logon banner.
  2. The owner must have the means to monitor the users of their network. This often requires extra equipment and know-how, which could be obtained through a service provider.
