Email, social media posts, your location via your company phone, and even screenshots of your monitors might be shared with your employer. Is this going too far or does your company have the right to know how productive an employee is?
Consumer tech expert Sarah Evans explains if you have a work-issued computer or phone the employee does not even have to be told about the tracking software. She also notes that video chat programs like Zoom have eye-tracking abilities that can determine if you are engaged with the video conference or not. And messaging platforms like Slack can easily be read by your employer because it is work-related.
Sarah says common sense is key while working remotely, and notes if there is something you would not have sent or done at work, to not do it while working at home on your company device. She also says to limit non-work-related web browsing and to not visit NSFW websites on your work computer.
