A company I work for wanted to use a VPN client called Junos Pulse to connect to their file server.
I am on my personal computer, and connected to my personal wifi. I was not using their VPN for internet access, but rather just to access their files.
Would my internet activity have been sent to the company through VPN? Should I uninstall Junos Pulse altogether to preserve my privacy? Anything else I need to do to ensure I'm completely off this company's network?
I have already looked at this related question: Can my company access my computer via the VPN?
As well as some others around the web. I do understand that VPN clients will monitor your internet browsing but the part I don't understand is that in this case I wasn't using the VPN to access the net, I was still on my own wifi. So is this still the case for me?
