To avoid social media storms and bad press, most companies have guidelines for behaviour on the internet. In some cases, they even monitor their employees phones. 

Well, thanks to Apple you’ll be able to double-check if your employer is watching you.

The next iOS update will include a message that tells you if your phone activity is being supervised by your employer. 

According to Reddit user MaGNeTiX, the message will show on the device’s lock screen. Check out the image below.

You can get even more info in the About screen, which will tell you if your boss is monitoring your internet traffic. You can also find out if your employer is tracking your location. 

Many companies register their equipment through Apple’s Device Enrolment to make it easier to deploy a large number of devices to employees. 

It doesn’t look like the feature all let you turn off monitoring, but it will give you a warning. Many people are not aware that their employer monitors their devices.
