Millions of people admit to viewing porn on their work laptops during WFH

Most workers and employees were compelled to work from home during the lockdowns that touched us all.

According to others, this transformed the WFH into a new normal, a culture that could be embraced by all or most firms due to its economic benefits.

However, it also included a slew of unexpected shocks and viral videos. While WFH, some people suspected their wives or partners were spying on them.

Others said their managers were turning like bullies, asking employees to perform more work from home, send business-related communications at inconvenient times, and so on.

But what we did not suspect is this: Millions of people were viewing porn on their work laptops during WFH! This can be a damning report for the WFH gangs.

We assumed that individuals couldn’t resist the temptation to check Twitter, ASOS or Lazada, or catch up on the daily news cycle.

It’s simpler to keep on track at work because you don’t want to be caught with the incorrect item on your screen.

Working from home, on the other hand, is a different story, and employees have been taking full advantage, according to new data.

A survey by IT support company Totality Services show that the most popular activity is browsing social media (17%) followed closely by instant messaging friends (15%).

But perhaps the most shocking finding from the survey, which asked 2,000 Brits what they really use their work devices for, is that 5% admit to using them to watch porn. 

That equates to over 3 million workers in the UK alone, with more men (5.3 percent) than women (3.7 percent) admitting to seeing pornographic content on their devices.

Even more surprising, one-third of those who view porn on business time do so for two to four hours a day – and a further 20% admitting to consuming sexual content for four to eight hours a day.

Another concerning finding from the survey was that the same number admitted to gambling on the job, with three-quarters of those gambling for up to four hours a day – which is concerning given that 4% of the population gambles at risk levels, and 7% are negatively affected by other people’s gambling.
