(ZEROHEDGE) – As waves of Covid-19 continue to dictate working (or not working) habits for millions of Americans, employers have been turning to digital surveillance platforms to monitor their at-home workers, according to The Guardian.
Sneek captures live photos of people every minute or so via their laptop webcams – which are then displayed across a wall of a 'digital conference room' that everyone else on the team can see. If caught not working, other workers can forward the offending photos to bosses via Sneak Slack chat.
"We know lots of people will find it an invasion of privacy, we 100% get that, and it’s not the solution for those folks," said Sneek co-founder Del Currie. "But there’s also lots of teams out there who are good friends and want to stay connected when they’re working together."
