Hello everyone!

I had a question, when using a wifi network, does internet activity leave any traces. And if it does, what exactly kind of information is left?

Thanks in advance!

It leaves the same info as if you were connected by wired ethernet.
Logs on the wifi and network, and ISP net conenction would be the same.
As far as ISP, they may log IPs connected to or not depending on their policy.
They can't tell whether you connect from wired LAN or wifi LAN once it's thru the router. And of course web servers, email servers etc all log who connects and perhaps more info.

Some software sends machine id info that could be logged anywhere on route.

Other than that you'll have to be more specific.
