Just curious... if I login to my personal Google account to check my Calendar / tasks, what exactly will my corporate IT be able to see.
Will it just be stuff on screen ?
While I don't really have anything to hide, I don't want to give my company (or some hack working for it) access to my private info, either.
Here's the overall idea and reason for this question.
I use Google for my personal calendar, tasks and email. My company uses Outlook Exchange. I have on the average 3-6 meetings a day, and over a hundred active tasks. I also have quite a busy family schedule that I am trying to balance. I am not always in one spot and my start / end times are fluctuating. So it's important to be able to see my work calendar (meetings and tasks that are due today) and personal calendar on same screen so that I could plan my day ahead. Mail, not that important.
I could use the company provided software to sync my personal devices to Exchange. However, the rather vague Terms I would have to accept state that they may be able not only to remotely wipe my device (something I at least understand the reason for) but also go through the personal content, like location data and apps installed - no way I am letting a company I work for have that level of control over my life.
Another alternative would be to set up a Google account for just the work stuff, copy my meetings there, and maintain the master task list in it. Then I could share my personal calendar with it and have one place to look at.
So the question is - say I set it up this way, enable two way authentication via my personal cell phone, and while at work I log into this account via browser, turn off the display of my personal calendar, and switch from my personal task list to work task list. Now I only see work related info on the browser screen. Can someone from my IT department still get to my personal data ?
