    Key stroke monitoring, in addition to monitoring email and internet usage. Everything you view on the internet at work, including your “secure” banking sessions, is first downloaded to your workplace server before it’s viewed on your monitor. You used their property and bandwidth to access it, so they have the ability and right to read it.

    What a surprise! They own all the equipment and are paying you to do your job. It is really a shame they have to watch you. Most companies are somewhat tolerant of some private use but there have been estimates people spend a significant amount of time using these resources for non-work related things.

    As far as the government is concerned, do you really think anybody is interested in monitoring your day to day activities? Get over it, your life is simply not that interesting.

    I don’t have time at work to surf the net, or conduct my own business on the company phone, fax or computer. I have my own computers and take care of my business on my computers. I don’t think that it is so difficult to keep my personal life and work separate.

    I’ve wall papered my entire bedroom with “tin foil”. So I’m covered!

    We’re at the threshold of reading someones thoughts (we can certainly read brain waves, although not from afar). I’ve already covered my RFID passport in tin foil, I might do the same with my head one day, seriously…

    Any prudent company will require all employees to check their e-mail regularly, and the e-mail program will download an app to every employees’ computer and smartphone that will monitor all communications by every employee. Not to do this would be reckless negligence by the company. As would admitting to doing this.

    (America might be #1 now, but other countries are doing their best to catch up. Just look at GCHQ.)

    I have tin foil on all my windows, now my neighbours think I am a nut. To be a nut or or not a nut that is the question.

    Perhaps a new option on new houses should be anti-bugging features such as metal walls, shutters over windows, control of infrared leaks, RF and audio jammers, and so forth. Should provide hundreds of thousands new manufacturing and installation jobs. Progress.

    But have you tested to see if aluminum foil works?

    Plus they block many sites such as Facebook, Youtube, and any site streaming capabilities.
    If they aren’t select about it, it could affect your job if you use the Internet regularly in your work.
