I would make sure they allow that. If so, it doesn’t really matter. You turn your computer into the IT people who don’t know you anyway.

I mean, I can’t ask them if they are cool with me quitting remotely before I quit.

True, but there are typically policies that outline what you need to do when you quit. Try looking for those. Most places won’t let you use vacation on your last days at the firm, for example.

At the worst, FedEx it back to your office.

Will you be working those last two weeks?
