Company Expects Employees to Grant Them Remote Access to Their Personal Devices

Anyone who isn’t an IT worker might be a little more than concerned when the boss asks all the employees to install a certificate on their phones that prompts the warning: “installing this profile will allow the administrator to remotely manage your iPhone.” A cybersecurity expert might roll their eyes, but the rest of us would likely panic and indignantly google the legality of such a request. One concerned redditor asked r/antiwork for advice about installing such a certificate to their personal device and while most were disturbed, many IT professionals chimed in with both insightful and condescending comments.
