I am not very computer savvy.. I want to set up a logger or sniffer or something that will capture data being sent through my home router. My daughter is having a hard time at school and I want to see she isn't being bullied via messages in her phone or apps on it, like what's app ect.. She will not let me on her phone so this is the only way to see she is ok, as her life is in that phone.. Can anyone help please? I'm in UK.

I do suggest the monitoring on her phone is still the best approach and more frutiful because though social online or web email or chats will already be protected against the man in the middle sniffing - which you are thinking of. So even if we have a sniffer at router or hardware tap to the router it will not help as much since the traffic is encrypted by SSL or equivalent (including use of anonymous service such as TOR etc).

We do want to respect her privacy but at the same time as parent, the concern is legit on the cyber bullying and online threat that she may faced and not able to handle. It is tough to reconcile and strike a balance but suggest you have go for the oversight of her phone not to her knowing for a start and the appl installed in her phone will remain stealthy and not easily detectable by her savviness. It is possible.

The whole spirit for addressing such concerns is also for parent to ensure such appl used is specially developed and designed to help parents to keep their children safe (and for some on co-workers productive) so that its usage is deemed as absolutely legal. So if are open to this, I do suggest you discuss with family spouse and garner the family support first. Thereafter, you may check out such monitoring (avoid the "spy" term) appl like

(also works on non-jailbroken iOS devices, though monitoring features may be limited with this solution option.)

As shared by expert though it is not directly solely relying on network sniffing and phone oversight is still more effective.
