An employee, identified as BlueSeaChief on Reddit, has accused his company of intending to monitor all activities on his phone. He labelled the employer's actions as "illegal" and stated that when he raised concerns with management, he was met with the response: "if you don’t like it then leave.”
"My employer recently transitioned to using a new time card app that tracks our personal phones. Many of us are uncomfortable with this intrusion. However, attempting to discuss it with higher management will likely result in a dismissal with the ultimatum to leave. I am almost certain that this violates the law. What steps should I take or whom should I contact?" the Reddit user queried.
The post, shared on Monday, has garnered over 4,400 upvotes since then. Many have taken to the comment section to share their reactions.

One individual suggested, "If they wish to monitor when you're on or off the premises, they can provide you with a cheap phone to keep in your desk or locker. Refuse to install third-party spyware on your personal device."
Another added, "You should assert: 'I refuse to install third-party spyware that I have no control over on my phone. If the software is essential for my role, I will use a phone provided by the company.'"
A third commenter remarked, "Your privacy is precisely what they aim to monitor."
"There have been instances where companies confiscate employees' phones upon termination, arguing that company property is stored on them. The phones are often wiped clean, including personal data. Some individuals have had to wait for IT to mail back their personal devices, along with items like purses, keys, and wallets, as they are not permitted to return to their desks. I have declined to install company apps on my personal device several times for this reason," posted a fourth contributor.
