I do interview prep and apply for new jobs on work laptop cause the laptop is so fast.

I bring it home to do it on my own time.

Can I get in trouble / can any admin see this?

I'm at ibm rn

    Same rules as browsing porn

    1. Use incognito mode
    2. Don't use corporate network or corporate VPN.
    3. Always close browser tabs.
    4. Don't store job site passwords

      Can they still see what I'm doing if I'm using the company laptop on a personal network (corporate VPN turned off)

    even if they do, they probably won’t give a shit. I wouldn’t want to work at a place that frowns upon checking out another job (come on it’s not a long term relationship) so if anyone gives me crap I’d just gtfo.

    I've heard in most cases if you're on a different network like home and not on the VPN you should be okay, but if your company has gone super big brother and installed keystroke recording software they may be able to track it. But I heard that is fairly uncommon.
