Using Messaging Apps on Work Devices

​​​​​​Messaging apps are a great way to keep in touch with friends and family. However, not all messaging apps are safe to use on your work device. Unapproved messaging apps may contain vulnerabilities that cybercriminals can exploit. If the cybercriminals are successful, they could gain access to your organization’s network and other sensitive information.

Protect yourself and your organization by:

  • Only use work devices for tasks required by your job. Keep work and personal use separate.
  • Follow your organization’s policies on downloading apps on work devices.
  • Never share personal or sensitive information through unsecured apps. Be especially cautious if you don’t know the person messaging you.
