This is on a Windows 10 system, and they want to create an administrator account that only my manager will have the password to. This is apparently to enforce some new "security policies" that haven't really been explained. This isn't from IT, I already have administrator access and it's a small company.
To me it seems like there's a couple of possibilities
- To create a backdoor to RDP and/or install monitoring software.
- Gain access to my files remotely or while I'm away.
- Potentially have a way to reclaim the computer if I were to leave
Am I completely off base here? What access does creating a secondary administrator account provide them? Is there anything I should be doing to secure my privacy and data? I only log into one account for streaming music, and have 2FA.
Also, after I bring my laptop home, is there any possibility for them to access my personal computers and is it legal?
