History of the web

Hello, what's the capacity of the History tab? of how many maximum days can there be entries?
Are these history entries saved to RAM or somewhere on non-volatile memory?

Trend Micro's web history data is saved in jffs, which means it persists across reboots.

Traffic Monitor's data is saved to RAM by default, but the Asuswrt-Merlin firmware allows you to change it to another location.

So Web History is a Trend Micro application, not Asus? And at the same time it has a closed code, it cannot be modified or improved?

It uses TrendMicro engine for unknown reason and is perhaps closed source.

Bingo! You can see which ones are from Trend Micro on this page http://192.168.50.1/Advanced_Privacy.asp.

It's unclear to me how long they will log, since I don't rely on these closed source components to log my data, I personally use dnsmasq to log dns log requests.

But for Trend Micro's traffic analytics, I've heard they only hold 30MB of data.


But you can make a link to point the directory in JFFS that holds the data to a USB driver, or somewhere else, this requires a custom script, which is hard to do with Asuswrt, you need to use Asuswrt-Merlin.

Maybe because it's domain records are not DNS based, I tested it before and in my browser with DNS over HTTPS enabled, Trend Micro was still able to accurately identify the domains I was visiting, I guess they did via SNI.

I don't know. It somehow works in FreshTomato without TrendMicro and with DNS interception + DoT.

Do you know if this data is transferred to TrendMicro at all. Even when on VPN, they can see your web history
