If I am on a shared network can others see the sites I visited? Can I prevent them?

    If i hypothetically visit naughty sites can others on my shared network (my network is a wireless router and a bunch of laptops in my families house) find this out?

    One person in my family is a real tech-wiz so I am quite concerned that they may know how to find out what sites I visit. I know there is software they can install so I have password protected my computer to prevent this. Are there any other measures I can take so that they cant view the stuff I look at on the internet over the network? Thank you.
