bad idea to watch porn on my work laptop?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Dec 23, 2016 9:54 pm

My gf accidentally smashed my personal computer one night when we were wasted so now I basically only have this laptop my firm gave me and my phone which is also the firm's.

I'm also pretty cool with the office's IT guy and I know he would just lol but can they even see what u browse if ur on your own network at home and in incognito mode in chrome?

I'd at least stick to vanilla mainstream porn. No weird fetish shit.

I'd also not watch porn on my company stuff.

I work in InfoSec for a gov agency, laptops have software installed that records the URLs that are visited.

As a matter of course we are not going out of our way to look for this activity, but there is a reasonable chance it will be observed (as many of the sites overlap with sites/servers that are suspected security risk). From time to time labor and employee relations will go on a hunt for specific users activities, these scenarios do not seem to work out well for people.

Yep. Best to ask them in an email for maximum effect.

If you use Bing video search, your browsing history will make it look like you just use Bing a lot.

Which is more of a red flag than watching porn on the work computer, IMO

Generally, yes.

But with Bing, this, or worse is assumed anyway.

ETA: unless the 'safe search' toggle in engaged, then we think you are just confused.

All your firms tracking logs reset on Jan 1 so this is really the best time imo.

I highly recommend investing in VR goggles for the office so nobody can see your screen.
