    Locked

    I am working remotely from home on my personal computer and home wifi but on company VPN. Can the company see what I do when I am off duty?

    Will it help if I switch off the VPN after my shift and only switch it on when I start work?

      Who knows what the company software does. Because of this you are never quite sure.

      I’ll not get into the information logged by your PC, your ISP, the VPN and more here. A lot of PCs leak information since the users opt in for Facebook and what else?

      If your company has their own VPN then they might. But if the have opted for a external provider such Ivacy or Nord then they cant.

      Your company might be able to see your personal information if you have installed some of their trackig software on your computer. You should have separate devices for work and personal needs.

        I believe if the VPN is from an external provider it is still possible to have access to the information as long as you are leaving the VPN on. That’s why I completely agree you should separate your work device from your personal device. VPN mostly gets info about your browsing activities.

      A VPN is a connection over the internet. It assures that the connection is safe and encrypted, it also assures that the data transfers over it is safely transmitted. It saves you from unauthorized access. Using VPN is good for safety point of you. As there is increasing cybercrime one needs to keep the their data safe and secure.

      there are cases that the company tracks your activity on the device using their VPN. so it’s better to use the personal for personal use while the company for work purposes only. just to be sure about your privacy.

      is the VPN developed by your company?

      I agree that if the VPN is not developed by your company, then it to a large degree won’t know what you’ve done with it.
