    Accidentally clicked on an adult website while logged onto my jobs guest wifi on my personal phone. This is the same guest wifi that any person can access by just clicking on it. Just wondering if they would be able to find out it was me or even if I could be fired for it. Kind of nervou about this foolish mistake. Please let me know what you guys may know on this topic.

    Your IT dept will track it down. Are there cameras at your job? It's really up to how they operate. They could not ever see it or you could get the shoulder tap after lunch.

    If it truly was an accident I wouldn't think anything of it. If they do catch it I'm sure you can explain you made an honest mistake or didn't know it was an adult site.

    If it was a one-time thing, I think you will be alright.

    I just googled it and they said they can track and trace usage even if its an open wifi. Depends on where you work whether they actually will.

    I doubt their IT department is monitoring it that heavy though. If they do ask you about it, just say you were browsing during lunch and you clicked a link by accident, which is the truth.

    More importantly, it's your personal cell phone... Even if you were on company WiFi, unless you have a company phone, you good...

    Probably nothing will happen it's the guest wifi.

    Never connect your personal devices to the company wifi.

    most of the time things like this are only caught when they're looking for a more serious issue that happened

    that's how people really get jammed up

    Man I be wacking it in the bathroom on company wifi all the damn time. What is a guest login again? Ain't nobody tryna pay for data to watch something free. Y'all boys need to learn to not be ashamed of your damn self and own up to it. Talmbout accidently clicked on an adult link..Ok guy you probably fall for that ol' click here and win a free iPad scam on every site you visit. R.I.P. to your hard drive with all them viruses.
