Don’t do THIS on your work laptop or PC..

It’s easy to become a little more relaxed when working from the comfort of your living room or home office.  Surfing over to Facebook, other social media, or even personal e-mail accounts can be very tempting. 

But the ONLY thing you should use your company’s workstation or laptop for is … WORK!  Check your personal accounts on YOUR personal device.  Over 600,000 Facebook accounts are hacked every day.  If you’re using a company device to access a compromised account, you’re opening the door to a hacker who can then get into your company’s network via your e-mail or PC.

Stay away from habits like these on your work laptop or PC.
