Can my employer see where I am if I use a VPN?

No, they cannot. If you’re using a good, trustworthy VPN service, your employer will only be able to see that you’re connected to a VPN server, and won’t be able to tell what you’re doing or where you’re going online.

If you’re using a VPN at work, your employer may not be able to see what you’re doing online. But if you’re using a personal VPN, your employer may be able to tell that you’re using one. And if your employer has strict policies againstEmployees using VPNs, they may take action against you. So it’s important to check with your company’s IT department before using a VPN at work.

Worth knowing

If you’re concerned about your network provider being able to see what you’re doing online, you may be wondering if using a VPN will help. Unfortunately, while VPNs can provide a certain degree of privacy, they cannot guarantee that your activities will remain completely hidden from your network provider.

When you connect to the internet with a VPN, your traffic is encrypted and routed through a remote server. This makes it difficult for anyone on your network to snoop on your activities. However, your network provider can still see that you’re connected to a VPN and can track how much data you’re sending and receiving. They also typically have access to logs that show when you were connected and for how long.

If complete anonymity is important to you, we recommend using Tor instead of a VPN. Tor encrypts your traffic and routes it through multiple nodes, making it much more difficult to trace than using a VPN. However, even Tor cannot guarantee complete anonymity; remember that no security measure is 100% effective.

Can my employer see my internet activity with company VPN?

Yes, when you connect to your company’s VPN, your employer can see your internet traffic. This is because of how VPNs work. However, it is unlikely that they will be able to see your internet traffic when you are not connected to the VPN.

Worth knowing

If you’re using a VPN, your internet activity is private and only visible to your VPN provider. This means that your ISP and Wi-Fi owner can’t see what websites you’re visiting or what files you’re downloading when they look at your internet history. However, they will be able to see that you’re connecting to a VPN server.
