Anyone know of an easy program to track web history outside of a browser? Since a user could easily erase their history or use a chrome's incognito mode, I need another way of verifying a laptop is being used only for work without having to rely on blocking sites with a firewall.

There is Wireshark, but that is a more active catch it as it happens type tool

Some routers will keep a log of traffic depending on the model and whether you have access to it.

You can also go the firewall route but instead of applying block rules you can apply a catch all that simply logs instead of blocking

I've used that before for debugging purposes, but I need something that can sit in the background silently.

Ooo, so simple I didn't even think about that.
