[RemoteAccessFilter] Am I being watched at work?
posted by anonymous to Work & Money (17 answers total)
Okay, heres the deal. My workplace runs on all macs, and we just installed a new server and upgraded the os. On the old version there was a little man under these binoculars who went black every so often, and when that happened I made sure I wasnt on the net or anything. On the new server os we just have a big pair of binoculars there, and I have no idea if there is any way to tell if my computer is being monitored or whatnot, either via remote access (the binoculars), or some other piece of software. Or if they can tell which software is active for how long or whatnot... Checked the manuals for remote access, and I am reluctant to ask the IT guy even though we are on good terms and all...
Now I know the simple answer is, dont surf the net at work, but thats not really what I am looking for. Most of the time I really dont have anything to do, honest to god, and I would just get bored to death otherwise. Been at the place for a year, but I really cannot lose this job.
If anyone can help at all with this, please make yourself known. If you need any more details, let me know. Thanks!
