comment Get the browser history without using a browser
It depends on the web browser. Best is to ask google (eg. "firefox debian history file"). However the history might be ciphered (or serialized, which makes it hard to read with a simple text editor).

comment Online Shopping password keylogger risk
Security is a matter of trust. The client side of a website can be audited by anybody. So I won't fear any popular website for key logging or malicious actions. Well, not actually, however I would first be aware of the web browser (including plugins) and the operating system. Especially if it is proprietary software... I'm sorry I don't understand what you mean "we can easily catch them using the registered address".

comment How can I identify this hash?
I think the best way to get the hash function is to look for "[linux distribution] passwd hash algorithm" on your favorite search engine. Then good luck to find a dictionary containing this specific hash. If I were you, I would RTFM either to get the root password or to get the way to change it. If this is not possible, the vendor might have a good reason. PS: Basically, uppercase letters are not meant to shout out aggressively.

comment How can I identify this hash?
If this is your router, you should not have to decipher the root password to get full privileges. Moreover, as you say, the password is not encrypted but hashed. The difference is that a hash function is not reversible. So you can't get the original data from the hash, unless you find the correspondence in a dictionary

As far as I know, a NFC tag is unpowered. So embedding a microprocessor doesn't seem possible.
