if im using an encrypted wifi at work , can they see what i look at or download over my phone?
If you have to ask the question, you probably shouldn't be doing it. Unless of course you hate the job and are looking for an excuse to leave (be left?).
Technically if your using company bandwidth they track everything you do online. Assuming they have the necessary software.
Without knowing what wireless router they have, it's impossible to say. But, even if you knew, there are programs out there that work with various routers that can track users, when that ability doesn't exist natively (or exists in a limited capacity) in the router.
LOL, unless you're using a personal VPN, if you're on company wifi, even encrypted wifi, yes they will know of exactly what you're doing.
But if you're on your personal phone, using your 3G / 4G service, then they would have no idea what you're doing.
This is the kind of work i used to do...they can track bandwidth based on ip address. In order to SEE what you are looking at is a different issue. They would have to know the local up address of your phone (if you are in an enterprise situation that uses dynamic addressing, then its not really an issue for you.) If you are in a company that uses static addresses then that could be found out pretty quickly by the admin. (They can spot an unassigned ip, this usually automated)
Separate names with a comma.
