Using Tracking Apps for Added Scrutiny at Work


In the olden days employers had hard work to do if they wished to monitor their workers. Usually this involved them leaving their own work and going round the workplace, peeking at every work station. But what if the “workplace” is a street, or a highway, or some other far away location? You can’t simply get up and cruise out to the highway to check how your drivers are doing.

What you can do, however, is use a mobile tracking software.

Why it Works

Unless you run a society of Luddites, chances are that all your workers carry mobile phones in their pockets. These nifty little gadgets not only keep you connected to them at all times, but also allow you to monitor them. If your business involves movement of vehicles to distant areas, especially if your workers transport valuable assets, a tracking app becomes imperative.

Monitor their Driving

When the workers have to drive long distances, business owners are increasingly concerned about the driving ethics. Drivers usually don’t like adhering to ethics and rules when they’re on their own, even though they’re told to. They might have signed the “terms and conditions” with you but when they’re out of sight, they believe they’re also out of mind.

As an employer it’s incumbent upon you to ensure that safety rules and road regulations are being followed at all times. Any generosity in terms of allowing unseemly behavior results in loss of reputation on your part. Through a mobile tracking app, you can randomly check up on how your drivers are doing at all times.

Hold them Accountable


As we said in the previous section, drivers tend to zone out and follow their whims when on their own. A mobile tracking app changes things drastically.

Think of it in this manner: is a person more likely to steal in a store when there’s a camera around or when there isn’t? Is a person more likely to eat messily when you’re watching or when you’re not? Is a child more likely to cheat on his paper when his teacher is looking or when she’s not looking? It all comes down to being watched. People behave themselves when they know they’re being watched.

 Similarly, when the drivers know that you’re tracking them, they’ll be far more conscious and careful with their driving. They know they’re going to be held accountable for their tasks. They will also become more punctual and will be very eager to avoid any violations.

Ensuring Quality Customer Care

Often employees on the road tend to be rowdy and uncivil with your customers. While you might reassure the customer on call that you’re very sorry for the incident, the damage can’t be undone. Prevent such from happening by using a mobile tracking and spy app on the phones of your employees. With the knowledge that they’re being monitored, they’ll remember to behave themselves.

What you’re doing here is ensuring that your customers aren’t given any cause to complain. You need to practice caution especially if you deal with other businesses with whom you need to build long term connections. Maintain customer loyalty, keep them happy, and ensure that they’re referring your business to others based on your excellent customer service.

Do Adults Need Tracking Apps Too?


We know that parents across the world are using tracking apps for their children’s safety purposes. They use these apps to locate their children, to keep a tab on their contacts, to survey the media being uploaded online. Well and good, because children need monitoring.

But don’t adults require the same?

Illusion of Safety

For most adults, their safety is never a question of concern. After all, they’re adults. There’s hardly going to be a kidnapping attempt on them, right? Wrong. Adults are just as susceptible to threats and risks, as children. Just because the risks don’t mirror those that children face doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

In fact, a quick Google search will show that adults are majorly the victims of killings. Adults are misled and taken off to indistinct locations mostly. Adults can be kidnapped, duped, goaded into meeting someone at a place, etc.

Just because adults bask in the illusion of their own safety doesn’t really make them safe. And it’s best to be vigilant. It’s easy, too; you’re carrying around in your pocket a gadget that can potentially be used as a tracker, and you can always be connected to someone you trust.

This blog goes over the many reasons adults need tracking apps on their phones.

Be Prepared for Any Emergency


You never know what the future has in store for you. You might get lost, and be unable to find your way through. And no matter how nice the cab driver seems, you’re at risk for as long as you’re going somewhere you don’t know the way to.

With GPS tracking apps you can share your location with a friend or a family member, who can easily keep an eye on you when needed.

Keeping Your Parents Reassured

No matter how old you are, you’re always going to be a child to your parents. And just as you’re concerned for the safety of your child, so are your parents concerned for you. This rings especially true if you live far away and there are few opportunities for you to meet up.

A great way of keeping them up to date with you and keeping them reassured is by installing a mobile tracking app on your phone. Then share the location with your parents so that they can look at you whenever they want. No matter how far away they’re placed, they’ll always be able to watch over you.

Cheaper than Vehicle Trackers


Often people prefer keeping a tracker in their vehicles so that they can keep a history of where their vehicle goes. These trackers while efficient are also very expensive, and can be quite hefty on your pocket. But why bother when you have a much cheaper, much more efficient alternative in the form of a mobile tracking app?

Simply take your phone with you whenever you go out (which most people are wont to do already) and voila—problem solved! You have a reliable, totally free of cost tracking your vehicle wherever you go. Your history is also saved and stored on an internal drive which you can use given the need arises.

Amp Up Your Security Today

Don’t be deluded about your assumed safety. You could get into a fix just like a child, and it’s always better to stay connected with a loved one when you’re outside. Get a high quality and technologically advanced mobile tracking apps from Highster Mobile. The app lets you keep track of chats, calls, contacts, photos, videos, emails, and GPS location. There are additional features added such as iMessages, recovering deleted messages, and a stealth camera. You won’t find these services around easily!

Harmful Smartphone Games and Protecting Your Children


Although harmful games have existed ever since people starting developing games (there’s no shortage of twisted minds in the world), people have only just begun to notice. The worldwide scare was triggered by the reports of probably the world’s most infamous smart phone game: The Blue Whale Challenge.

How the Blue Whale Blew Wails

When reports began pouring in of a notorious mobile game in which children talked to an anonymous “whale” or instructor, parents began to take notice. There were reports of children watching scary videos late at night, children going out into deserted streets at odd hours, and children cutting themselves with sharp objects. When the reports of children committing suicide began pouring in, parents worldwide freaked out.

Paranoia Was Afoot

The game involved children taking instructions from their “whale” and carrying out whatever outlandish task they were assigned. They couldn’t hoodwink the whale since they had to send in proof in the form of photos and videos. The game ended on level 50—and you could only win if you jumped from a high building.

Others like the Blue Whale: The Pass Out Challenge

Another online game accompanied by teens making videos of themselves while carrying out a challenge, the Pass Out Challenge (or the Choking Challenge) requires children to choke themselves. The goal is apparently to “get high,” which is an idea that greatly appeals to children. Euphoria is initiated when kids choke themselves to block oxygen from their brains. Unfortunately for many teenagers, the euphoria is often accompanied by unconsciousness and even death.

Salt, Ice, and Nothing Nice

Yet another game requires teenagers to lather their skins with salt and then put ice cubes over them. The ice decreases in temperature as load as negative 26 degrees due to the salt. The result is terrible burns and even frostbite.

Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon

But it can burn a human, and pretty badly at that. In an online game called the Fire Challenge, children video themselves doing this: slathering flammable fluids on their torsos and self-immolating. Children have been reported to use fluids ranging from perfume to alcohol to kerosene.

Sounds ridiculously insane, we know. But remember that we live among children who thought eating tide pods was a great idea. It goes without saying that these children really need monitoring.


In yet another bizarre online game, children are manipulated into cutting themselves with razors, knives, and other sharp objects. They’re then required to upload photos of their ordeals online. Mutilation, self-harm, and all kinds of horrid behaviors are encouraged under the guise of a “challenge.”

Why Children do It

Children go through a phase during their teenage in which they’re desperately seeking conformity and acceptance. To become part of a “cool” group would answer all their heart’s desires. A deep desire to belong underlines the affair. These “challenges” offer the children a way to “prove” themselves, and they gleefully follow through. The trends, like the Blue Whale, go viral and parents wake up a moment too late.


What makes these games and the sadistic “instructors” behind them so successful is that they work through smart phones. It’s a gadget to be found in every child’s hands and the perpetrators can easily contact a child without the parent knowing.

How to Protect Your Child

In today’s highly volatile world with so many predators lurking behind screens, you can never be too sure of your safety. This is true especially with games like these which your children might fight exciting and daring. Monitor your child using a spy app and keep an eye on their movements through a mobile tracking app. In this manner you’ll know where they are, what they’re doing, who they’re talking to, and what media (photos and videos) they’re uploading using their phones.

Highster Mobile offers many sophisticated mobile surveillance programs for parents. Give us a call today at 1(866) 611-9506.

How Can Parents Know What Their Kids are up to on Phones?


Your child could be taking a selfie with the phone you handed them. They could be texting a friend, discussing homework. They could be playing the hardest level Candy Crush has to offer. Or they could be talking to a complete stranger on social media, getting goaded into meeting this stranger in a secluded area.

Concerned? You should be.

The Smart Phone as a Smart Weapon

Doubtless you find the smart phone a greatly useful device—after all it keeps you well-connected, it helps you socialize, and it allows you to take a duck-faced selfie every time you feel like taking one. If you’re hungry, you order food using an app. If you have an appointment to make, you hail a cab using an app. If you have to book a ticket or a hotel room, you use an app. Smart phones make life so much easier, and you know this.

But you’re not the only ones who’ve realized how the smart phone has made outdated procedures easier. Predators, kidnappers, and pedophiles know this too,

They know that they can easily contact a child on their phones without the parent knowing. They know that they can goad the child into meeting them. They can coerce the child into sharing harmful media and blackmail the child. There’s so much that they can do and so easily—which is exactly why you need to tighten your grip on your child’s online footprints.

Cyber Bullying

Out of all the children who use social media, 90% witness incidents of bullying, whereas 75% of them have been bullied. This happens on social media platforms and chat rooms where a child can be bullied for their looks, color, etc. It also happens in online games which enable players to “talk” among themselves.

Online Predators

The cyber world is teeming with predators waiting to pounce on unsuspecting victims. Many of these incidents are sexual in nature, aimed at exploiting unripe minds. In the worst case scenarios the child is lured out into meeting a potentially dangerous person. The predators know that social media and especially gaming rooms are frequented by children. They too hang around these virtual arenas, often hiding behind fake IDs.

Unless and until you’re keeping an eye on your child and tracking where they are at all times, your child, too, is at risk.

Sharing Personal Information

Children are the most vulnerable members of any society and predators know this. Often people who harbor unfriendly feelings towards you and wish to harm you do so through your children. They reach out to your children on their phones and begin fishing for personal, private information. This information ranges from your address to your timings for work, etc. For instance simply by telling others that their father is a night watchman, your child is announcing to the world that you’re absent from your house all night. This is the kind of information which when falls into the hands of the wrong person can cause serious damage.

Thievery and Scams


In what is a recent worldwide bank hacking spree, hackers are using smartphone in an ingenious new method. And it’s even better than phishing (you know those emails which tell you to click on this link so that you can access the 10 hundred thousand dollars you won for eating at Mc Donalds).

It works like this: someone calls you pretending to be a bank official or a person of governmental authority. They ask you for your personal information such as your bank details—and they don’t even need much. All they need is your name, your bank account number, a few more snippets and voila—you’re game!

Now if you as an adult were to receive such a call, you’d know instantly that something was off. But if your child were to receive this call, would they call bollocks? Or would they willingly go along with the caller?

Guard Yourself against Online Ills and Evils

Keeping yourself and your children well-protected is key. Since in today’s world data is money, you need to monitor what your child is doing on their phones—especially since most of your data is stored on your phone. Highster Mobile’s sophisticated spy app lets you monitor phones easily and stealthily. Call us at 1(866) 611-9506 for more.

Trackers in Phones for Safety


Back in the day, children were easy pickings for the vile and the villainous. Between 1981 and 1986, a man named Robert Black was involved in kidnapping and killing little girls—who also happened to be his daughter’s friends. Dean Corll was famously known as the “Candy Man” and is the man who inspired the “candy in the van” trope. As you might have guessed, he was goading children to his house using candy as bait. He also used a child accomplice—Elmer Wayne Henley and David Owen—to goad children. This happened between 1970 to 1973.

One wonders what the absence of such alarming incidents today means? Has the media become too lax and isn’t reporting right anymore? Or have people become suddenly moral and good? Neither. It’s just that with the advent of the smart phone and learning from the chapters of history, parents have become smarter too. They’re using these phones to monitor their children, disarming possible pedophiles, molesters, and kidnappers from their vices.

How the GPS Turned the Tables

7d24 satellites up in space and their stations down here on ground are what make up the base for GPS. Global Point System aids in radio navigation globally. Initially intended for wartime purposes and still managed by the U.S. Department of Defense, GPS is as of today used by civilians all around the world. The service is provided to the people of the world without any charges or fees.

Using a GPS tracking device, you can work out exactly where someone is situated at the moment. You can locate cars, people, and even your phone if it gets lost. Many companies use GPS tracking systems to monitor their workers especially if the job requires movement of vehicles. Delivery services and cab hailing services are among the major users of GPS tracking devices. Increasingly so, parents have begun using GPS tracking as a tool for parenting. Using it they can keep tabs on their children 24/7 without having to be physically present with their children.

Retaining Data

Not only does a GPS tracking system help you track the current location of a person, it also helps you view where they’ve been in the past 12 hours. The data is stored for future use. A memory card or some other form of internal memory stores this data and makes it available for your viewing later on. This way you can check and revisit where the device has been and amp your surveillance game.

What it Does

Surveillance of a mobile phone brings with it a number of advantages. At any given moment you can share your location with a family member or a friend. It allows you to travel alone with peace of mind and with the conviction that you’re not going to get lost. You can keep an eye on another person when they’re traveling, especially if they’re children or new to town. Often digital cab hailing services become infamous for their shortage of safety precautions. With a GPS tracking app, you don’t need to keep worrying.

Businesses where large fleets of vehicles have to move from one place to another, especially if they’re carrying something valuable, often use the system. Further monitoring of employee activity and behavior is also carried out to ensure quality customer service.

Why You Need to Monitor Your Child’s Phone


Children all over the world carry mobile phones in their pockets. A tool used for communication, socialization, and more, one can hardly be expected to survive without them. But while smartphones enable you to contact your child whenever the need arises, there are issues which accompany a smartphone. These issues amplify and turn into even bigger problems when left with unmonitored children.

Giving your child a phone is fine. Leaving the child with the phone unmonitored is not.

What are They Doing Online?

Check which websites your child is frequenting when they go online. Are your kids using mere apps and games or are logging into phony dating websites? Are they using websites with mature content? In the worse-case scenario, they might be surfing websites on the dark web. Pornography can hamper brain development in children.  

Who are They Talking to?

Are they using their phone to keep up with friends and classmates or is there more to their connections? Remember how you told your child not to talk to strangers? Smartphones have just made it easier for strangers to contact your children—and it’s an outlet that encourages responsiveness.

A mobile surveillance app lets you monitor their calls and texts, giving you complete insight into their circle of communication. There’ve been numerous incidents where children have met up with shady strangers while their parents remained clueless. These strangers often contact children through smartphones. These phony meetings end in harm if allowed to go unchecked.

What are They Sharing with People?


It’s most crucial to monitor all outgoing files on your children’s phones. Teenagers going through puberty can be easily fooled into sharing sexually explicit content and media, often without their express consent. Predators then use these files to blackmail and bully children, which creates far more problems in its wake. Spying on your child’s phone enables you to sit with them and talk to them in case they attempt sharing similarly damning media.

Where are they Going?

Since you can’t physically monitor your kids all the time, use a GPS tracking software to stay updated on their whereabouts. Whether they’re home on time or whether they’ve reached their destinations, where they’re going when they don’t tell you, etc. can all be found out. From your home or workplace, easily monitor your child wherever they go.

Are They Hiding Something?

Although your children need their privacy, it’s also important to find out if they’re hiding something. This becomes especially important when they begin displaying aberrant behavior. If they become too secretive and refuse to talk to you about whatever’s troubling them, spying on their phone can be useful. You can find out things about their inner thoughts and feelings, and gauge if you need to talk to them. Based on the nature of the information you find out, you can take further action as best suits your position.

What to Do?


If you do discover something incriminating on your child’s phone, sit with them and talk about it. Explain gently but seriously why they’re engaged in something wrong. Explain to them why they could be in danger. Have a heart-to-heart to them instead of snatching away their phone or grounding them. Parenting works best when you communicate with your child.

Spy Apps and Parenting


A male elephant stays with its herd for around 13 to 14 years, and leaves on the onset of puberty. From then on, it’s on its own. A lion cub when it grows to three years old leaves the pride and wanders off to build a pack anew. It’s on its own. A bald eagle grows its wings in around 10 to 14 weeks and takes flight from the nests it was born in. It’s on its own.

Human adolescents though . . . rarely abandon the safety of the pack.

A Juvenile Human is Never on its Own

Humans in this case are pointedly distinct. Our young ones tend to stay with us for most of their teenage years and well into their adulthood. Unlike our bestial cousins from the Savannah, our young ones learn to depend on us—for sustenance, suiting, survival, and surveillance. They expect from us an unceasing responsible attitude.

Humans perhaps are the only mammals who’re not meant to leave the sides of their parents well until maturity. The point of isolation does not surface at puberty but well into adulthood. Separation isn’t ritualistic and children are guarded fiercely even by wizened parents. Cynics will contest that humans mature the latest of all animals—but then again we live in an avenue far more dangerous than the jungle or the plains. We live among other humans—and it’s the most dangerous place of all.

When Your Children Begin Keeping Secrets


We’ve established that the human beings aren’t genetically designed to distance from the parents. However, at the onset of puberty and even prior to that, something of the animal instinct finds an awakening among them. Children will start keeping secrets from their parents, communication tones down, and a general aloofness grows between the child and the parent. Smartphones and the internet are often at the root of the problem. As these children grow increasingly addicted to their phones and digital lives, they grow more distant. And this raise concerns with parents worldwide. “My child is keeping secrets from me” is a common global complain.

That secretive children are a constant source of worry is a trope oft explored in movies: think of The Purge, Laddaland, Dexter, and more. There’s always a child who’s stopped talking to their parents, is often out late, and displays some aberrant and worrisome behavior. The parents in this case simply clank their forks and command their disobedient offspring to have dinner with them. Eventually, parent-child bonding occurs and is usually a leading underlining theme in the plot.

In real life, the scenario doesn’t play out as smoothly as it does in fiction. If not investigated correctly, the child will grow more distant and more aloof. If not surveyed properly, there’s risk of potential harm.

How Spy Apps Function as Parenting Tools


Children expect you to keep an eye out for them, to care for them, and to be their sentinels. They might keep secrets and engage in potentially harmful activity on their phones—but subconsciously they’re still hardwired to expect guardianship from their parents. As a parent, it’s incumbent upon you to give them their due privacy. But it’s also incumbent upon you to keep a watchful eye over them—until, at least, they leave the pack/pride/herd and are capable of living on their own.

Now unless you have limitless time on your hands and are following your child all around town, there’s hardly a way for you to keep a constant eye on them. The problem is further exacerbated by the invasion of smartphones which keep children busy for most of the day. Spy apps solve both problems with one stroke: they help you keep track of your child’s location, and they help you keep an eye on their activities. Parents all over the world are turning to spy apps and tracing software to keep a better watch over their children. It’s more than an app as of today—it’s a parenting tool.

Install a Tracking App and Be a Better Parent

If you too are a concerned parent and desire monitoring your child’s movements and activities, worry no more. Highster Mobile has a highly advanced and sophisticated tracking app for smart phones which is helping parents in their duties. Allowing them the use of additional features such as stealth camera and recovering lost data, Highster has become a leading figure with parents. Get in touch with us today.

The Legal Limits of Workplace Privacy

A survey conducted by the American Management Association found that nearly 43% of companies and businesses monitor their employees’ emails. Why has monitoring and controlling workplace privacy become so important, and what are the legal ways companies can go about this?

Calls & Emails

One of the biggest challenges companies face is when their employees slack off work and spend too much of their time on personal emails and phone calls. This promotes a laid back culture that creates a loss in productivity.

According to the Electronics Communications Privacy Act of 1986, electronic communication through email and phones may be monitored by businesses, provided that the employees are made aware of this beforehand.

The ECPA requires employees to consent to this monitoring when they begin working at the company, thereby informing them of the potential lack of privacy they’ll have for personal usage of phones or emails. This policy ensures that employees don’t send unprofessional emails, talk impolitely to clients, or spend half their time talking to their family during work hours.  

GPS Tracking

Although state requirements may vary, GPS tracking is usually allowed by the government. Various businesses require work that is conducted outside of office premises and thus entails extensive travelling. In these cases, employers are allowed to monitor the GPS location of their employees through tracking software.

However, businesses are usually required to present a legitimate case for why GPS tracking is in their interest. They may make case for improving efficiency and keeping work strictly related to business, without the employees making personal stops on the way.

GPS tracking lets the company know that their employees are taking efficient routes, using company vehicle only for work activities, driving safely, and are at the place they should be during work hours.   

Internet Usage


Worried about what your employees may be using the office internet for? Want to avoid lack of productivity due to internet abuse? The good news is that you’re allowed to restrict and monitor your employees’ internet usage during work hours!

Social media platforms are a common workplace distraction. With a mobile tracking app, employers can monitor the online activity of the employees. They may then hold the workers accountable for their actions, with existing evidence showing their neglect of work and abuse of internet.

Thus employees become cautious and mindful about what websites they browse through during work hours, and can concentrate more on their work instead of wasting time online.

How Tracking Apps Can Help Monitor Your Child’s Mental Health


Critics of parents using tracking apps accuse them of invading their child’s privacy, but the truth is, these apps can be extremely crucial in assessing your child’s mental health.

Prevents Children from Cyberbullying

Remember the notorious Blue Whale Game that took the world by a storm last year? The online game resulted in an alarming increase in teenage suicides, after the administrator reportedly told the participants to take their own life as the final “task”. The entire game was based on manipulation and cyberbullying, where the victims were mostly teenagers already suffering from depression, PTSD, or suicidal ideation.

Using a tracking app can inform you of any such suspicious and threatening online activity your child may be a victim of. The Blue Whale Game, for instance, involves a series of texts and photos exchanged between the participants and the administrator. These can be viewed by parents who can then intervene immediately and save their children from such malicious apps.

Give Access to Information Exchanged

If your child has been acting unlike them self lately and isn’t opening up to you, it may be because something’s troubling them. Because tracking apps give you access to your child’s text messages, photos, and browsing history, you can be alerted of any unusual or worrying content exchanged or uncovered by them.

For instance, are there any texts indicating they’ve self-harmed or self-medicated? Do they sound increasingly disinterested in hanging out with their friends? Have they been reading articles online related to depression? Does the browser history show that they’ve looked up suicide, suggesting a possible inclination?

Prevention is better than cure, and knowing the sort of stuff your child is discussing can help you help them before the situation escalates.  

Help Parents Locate Their Child  

Tracking apps are also helpful in cases where the parents are aware of their child’s mental health.  Teenagers with high functioning anxiety or depression are often unable to operate at their full mental capacity.

In these cases, it’s always wise to keep track of their whereabouts so that you’re able to look out for them. In the off chance that they wander off to an unusual place or disappear for a long stretch of time, you can quickly locate them using the GPS software and get in touch with them.


Having a tracking app installed ensures that you are always up to date with your child’s whereabouts. For kids who suffer from mental health issues, this is an act of safety. Moreover, the tracking app can help you check up on your child’s whereabouts to see if they’re doing okay. It’s not always easy to determine whether your child is having a difficult time, even if they’re in school or at a friend’s house and checking up on them can hep you assess the situation better.

Highster Mobile provides mobile tracking solutions that are compatible with both iPhones and Android. Download the app now to make sure your child is safe, is getting the professional help needed for mental health, and can be easily located!

How To Keep Your Employees From Surfing The Web During Work

In a survey conducted by Forbes, it was found that 25% of the participants used the company’s internet access for online shopping, while the remaining candidates reported to using other social media platforms during work hours.


Why Are Your Employees Wasting Time On The Internet?

There may be a number of reasons why the majority of your workforce is spending time browsing the Web during work hours. They may not feel motivated to work due to disinterest in the project goals or lack of incentives. Employees often feel less satisfied with their jobs when they do not share the company’s vision, or feel their hard work is going unrewarded. This can result in spending time doing things not related to work.  

It’s also a possibility that they’re not being challenged enough. Maybe the work they’re being assigned isn’t as exciting as they hoped, and they feel their skills aren’t being fully utilized. They may also have considerably less work to do during the designated hours each day, resulting in them taking frequent “internet breaks.”

So the question arises, how do you prevent your employees from spending too much time on the internet during work hours?  

Inculcate a Positive Culture

A company can only be successful if it has a thriving work culture. This happens when there’s a strong leader who can motivate  employees by engaging with them and keeping them focused on the bigger goal.

Supervisors and authority figures that are aloof and appear unapproachable to their team are unlikely to make this impression, causing employees to feel disconnected.

If employees share the company’s vision and have a constant source of motivation through their supervisor, they are more likely to be passionate about their work. They’ll be genuinely involved in the projects and can direct all their attention toward achieving those goals.

This can limit the work hours wasted surfing the internet and encourage teams to come up with successful initiatives instead.  

Limit Employee Access

Setting stringent rules for employees’ personal usage can also save your employees from wasting time on the internet. For instance, they can be allowed a minimum 30–45 minutes per day for using the company’s internet service for things unrelated to work, provided that it does not affect their productivity.

You can also restrict access to certain websites such as various online streaming and social media platforms, which are a cause of distraction for your employees.

Use a Tracking Software

Ultimately, you’ll have to take assistance from technological innovations to be able to monitor internet wastage by employees. This can be done through apps such as Highster Mobile, which keep a track of the employees’ chat histories, email exchanges, and browsing histories.

Once your employees know their internet activity during work hours is being logged, they’re less likely to browse the Web for personal usage. Instead, they can direct their time and energy on work-related internet activity.
