Half of employees watch inappropriate content on the same devices they use for working from home, new study reveals

As social distancing measures become common and workers adjust to their new professional environments, even from their own living rooms, there is potential for private and working life to blur into one. In fact, half (51%) of those working from home who started to watch more inappropriate content admit they did so on the same devices they use for work-related purposes. This is just one of the key findings from Kaspersky’s new How COVID-19 changed the way people work report.

The ‘new normal’ that workers are now facing is starting to have an impact on their work-life balance. Nearly a third (31%) of workers said they are spending more of their time working than they did before. However, 46% said they have increased the amount of time they spend on personal activity. This particular change may have come about because workers are now not having to commute or travel as much than they were before.
