Working From Home? Zoom Tells Your Boss If You’re Not Paying Attention

VICE (03/06/2020)
  • Due to the coronavirus, many US workers are now forced to work from home and utilize teleconferencing technology such as Zoom.
  • Zoom allows administrators to enable an “attention tracking” feature that lets them know if employees have clicked away from Zoom meeting windows.
  • On social media, employees complain about potentially being penalized for briefly looking away from Zoom.
  • However, a simple workaround is for users to enable Zoom on one device while doing work on another device.
