Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Policies

  • Think carefully about using a personal device for work purposes.

  • Read your company’s BYOD policy thoroughly and ask questions.
  • If something is unclear, you may want to speak to an attorney or the HR department.
  • 
Consider having two separate devices to keep your work and personal devices separate.

  • Employees who participate in BYOD programs should be conscious of privacy settings, information they store on their device, and apps they use. 

  • Back up personal data such as photos, videos, and music, especially if the company has the ability to remotely wipe data from your device.
