Hi alll, new to the forum but I just had a question about some technology that I don't understand. Let me preface this issue with, I wasn't looking at inappropriate things, I was just on sites that were not on my job's list of approved sites. Ok. So I'm going to try to make this short, the place I work has an android tablet that we use for keeping track of people's visitations. This tablet is 4g LTE capable, and so I don't use my own personal data, I often use the mobile hotspot of the tablet for surfing the internet on my iPhone. The tablet broke yesterday, in fact it may have just died, I don't know, they had to take it to our IT department today. Of course my paranoid mind starts running about how they could
Look up what sites I've been on on company's time. Please do not respond with any messages of how I should know better or any moral direction because I'm only asking about the tech side of this issue. My question is, how hard would it be for my IT department to go back into the mobile hotspots history (my iPhone browsing) and see what websites I've been going on? I'm due for a big promotion and I need some reassurance that they're most likely not going to search for it because it's not easy to do. So is it easy to do? Can a skilled tech person go in and see everything I've been on at a moments notice or is there a lot of connecting of the dots they would have to do? They shouldn't be looking for anything in particular but I also don't know our IT dept's protocol on mobile devices and whether they check browsing history. Especially browsing history on my personal phone using their mobile hotspot. Sorry for the long post!
