6 things you should not do on your work computer
We all have one of the wired searching habits on the internet, but sometimes it becomes difficult if you carry that habit to your professional work place. Well, the best piece of advice to you, if you can relate to the statement above, is that please keep these away from your work computer.

You might be aware that whatever you do on your work computer, your employers can easily track almost everything you do on your work computer. Believe us, in that situation deleting your history, wouldn't save you. So, it's better to be safe than sorry.

Today in this article we are going to talk about 6 things that you should not do on your work computer.

Pornography or other inappropriate websites

We'll start with the most obvious one. Come what may; don't search for porn on your work computer. Although it's a no-brainer, some people actually do this. If you are one of them, please stop immediately. It can get you fired or you can end up in a highly embarrassing situation.

Websites related to your side hustle

if you are doing two jobs at the same time, and your employer does not know about it, don't search for websites that can give you information about how you can be better at your second job. Or for that matter, don't browse websites that'll help you complete a project assigned to you in your other job.

Don’t visit job search websites

You don't like your job anymore and are just waiting for a better opportunity to switch. Nevertheless, don't go looking for this opportunity while you are at work. The last thing you would want your employer to know would be that you are planning to leave. Websites like Monstr.com or job searches on LinkedIn should be done in your spare time at home.

Avoid dating websites

Keep off dating websites once you are at work. This isn't just something that should be avoided on a work computer, it's a bid don't at the workplace, to begin with. Remember that you don't wish your employer to know that use these websites to find yourself dates.

Avoid torrents or streaming

A lot of people do this at work, but this can get you in trouble. A lot of torrent websites are used to distribute illegal copyrighted software - which is something a company can't allow on its network. So a 10-15 minute download can be ignored, but if you are downloading something for hours, your manager will be informed about it.

Don't visit websites like Simply Confess

There are times when we all want to vent out about a colleague on a website like Simply Confess. Stop yourself from doing this, at least until you have access to your personal laptop. Since your browsing history is available with the IT department, it'll take them no time to find out who bad-mouthed the company and you can get into trouble for doing this.
