It seems that every question I've researched on this topic makes the general statement "on my home wifi network" which doesn't specifically address my question.
I'm about to start a new job working remotely at home using a laptop and phone provided by my new employer. I do not want my employer's equipment to be able to snoop on any wireless or wired network activity that is done by any of my personal devices.
I understand that anything I do on their equipment has no expectation of privacy. I am only interested in what an employer can technically do to invade my personal privacy, not what an employer might do or should/shouldn't do per U.S. law.
I have 4 networks set up in my router, each with its own password. My router has its own unique password. Each network is WPA2/PSK-protected.
The questions I have are:
If I dedicate one of my wifi networks to my employer's equipment, is the wireless traffic on any of the other 3 networks vulnerable to packet sniffing by my employer's equipment/software?
If I did the above, would my employer's equipment/software be able to snoop on any network traffic history that was done on that network (i.e., the one now dedicated to my employer's equipment)? If so, does clearing the router log suffice to protect my privacy?
Is getting a second line into my house and dedicating it to solely work-related activity a safer approach? Would any traffic on the other (i.e., original) line be vulnerable to snooping by equipment on the new second line?
Thanks for any advice.
