Has anyone been fired for activities on personal device linked to work?Jan 18
It looks like my company allows us to do some limited work (email, chat, basic work apps) on our PERSONAL phones and laptops.
I'm concerned that their software (Intune) install stuff like keyloggers to spy on what I type and surf. It does not help that my employer also makes the OS of my laptop and I'm wondering if there is backdoor triggers to start monitoring and mining data once I add a corporate email to my device.
Is my browsing and computer activities on these personal devices safe? Meaning stuff I do at home, not connected to work VPN, after work hours.
Has there been incidents where people got fired over activities on their personal device when not connected to work resources?
- VMware lRQQ72Keyloggers?! How the fuck did you pass the interview bar with this stupidity? How about starting with reading your employee agreement and the Intune functionality, perhaps even the OS APIs if you are so paranoid... The lawyers work both ways...
- Wow, you just keep amazing me... Please find at least one of those examples and I will pay you $1M as I can make probably few hundred mils. And you would be amazed what some companies put in their employment agreements. From non compete in non related fields like fast food to inevitable disclosure statements to agreeing to spy on you at any place, any time. Did you actually read yours?
- Microsoft saxonyOP you can watch porn & pirate stuff all you want. No one cares (usually). But if you want to be 100% sure, don't do work stuff on personal devices. Use Outlook web for mails.
- Microsoft X9pl12They don’t tell us to what extent they monitor and I doubt you could ever know so don’t risk it.
It’s their network they can do what they like. Being your own device and use cellular or a guest WiFi instead.
