Disclaimer: I'm not asking for personal advide on that topic, it's more or less out of curiosity. For context, this is set in Germany.
A coworker of mine recently talked about her using the laptops (our company provides us for work) to do personal stuff at home. Stuff like surfing, online banking, youtube, shopping, etc.
I'm now wondering if this is a safe to do thing, or if the company can, for example, track what she was doing later on?
Edit: With a little research I just found out that the use of software like keyloggers seems to be illegal in Germany, if the person being monitored does not allow it explicitly (which we have not done). But what about other software, like tracking internet history or stuff like that.
