Cyberloafing

What is it? Why I should care.


Cyberloafing is a term used to describe the actions of employees who use their Internet access at work for personal use while pretending to do legitimate work. It is a growing problem. No company is immune.

  • It has been estimated that between 60% – 80% of an employee’s time spent on the internet is spent doing something besides work (Aghaz & Sheik 2016)
  • In 2014 website browsing on mobile devices eclipsed desktop browsing
  • From 2014 to 2016, mobile data traffic increased by 350%

How to find out if it is a problem

Here are just some of the steps we take in helping you assess the magnitude of the problem within your company mobile device users:

  • Identify top users. In particular, those that appear repeatedly as top users
  • Segment users by brackets of sustained excessive data usage
  • Detect users that are likely streaming video
