If you work in an office environment, then you may have wondered if your boss monitors everything you do online. However, even if you have pondered that question, you probably continued to browse Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or whatever other sites you like to visit.
Unfortunately, more and more bosses are monitoring their employees’ activity online. And, to make matters worse, this isn’t even illegal in some parts of North America. In Canada, only three provinces have enacted privacy legislation which prevents bosses from snooping on work computers. Outside of these three provinces, there is an ‘anything goes’ attitude towards workplace snooping.
Ultimately, it’s always a good idea to do work-related activities on your work computer and save any personal activities for when you get home.
With identity theft on the rise, you can never be too careful about your computer’s security online. While it’s unlikely that your boss is monitoring your computer to steal your identity, other malicious individuals could be keeping track of your online activities in order to capture banking information, personal contact data, and other sensitive information.
The only way to fully protect yourself from the dangers of the internet is to disconnect from the online world entirely.
