My firm recently switched to a time keeping system that monitors everything you do on your computer. I have ADHD and often google random things (I.e. scores of games; actors in movies/shows; news articles; etc.) has anyone had a problem with AI monitoring and/or management getting on you?

Do the random things on your personal phonr

I do this too. I would also suggest using your phone. Although if you connect to wifi they can track that as well. So I would probably just use your phone and not connect to any firm wifi.

They won’t care about random harmless Google searches. Just be reasonable

Yea I used to work for the DOJ and they tracked stuff as well. As long as you aren't spending all your time doing random google searches you will be fine.

Random searches are fine. However, I would advice to use your separate gadget for personal use. Better to be extra safe.

That would stress me out to no end. I think as long as you are getting your work done they have nothing to complain about if you check the news every once in a while.

When you wfh you should use your personal laptop/iPad for non-work items. Extra bonus- when you’re getting distracted you can remind yourself to put down the personal device

But why would they care ? As long as you’re meeting your hours.

Can you just use your smartphone instead? Not sure there's another way around it, unless you feel comfortable talking to the powers that be about why you need to Google random things and get their approval. I'd just grab my iPhone and call it a day.

I have a firm phone so it’s still in the same boat

use your personal phone, and bring in a personal laptop

How do you approach the initial conversation with your doctor? I have taken a variety of both anti anxiety and anti depressants. Nothing works.
