The Floo Network is generally tracked by the Ministry of Magic but I was wondering are there other ways of tracking someone if they use a Floo Network that's not being traced by the Ministry?

  • What do you mean "Hamilonian path" ? – A Bookish Obsession Feb 17 at 1:18
  • What do you mean by "completely traceable"? In numerous episodes in the books (5 and 7) it is stated that the Floo Network IS CONTROLLED BY the Ministry and any activity in it will be detected, or even intercepted. – TimSparrow Feb 17 at 14:29

    @TimSparrow I think this is asking whether one could establish a "parallel" Floo Network, unknown to the Ministry. BookishObsession, care to calrify? :) – Jenayah Feb 17 at 14:47

I believe that the Ministry can track all Floo travelers. However, in The Order of the Phoenix, Umbridge manages to catch Sirius in the Gryffindor common room fireplace and is able to track them from there.
