I had a few porn pages open on my phone that I didn't close. I went to work and when I was wrapping everything up, and everyone left I decided to get online and in noticed the porn pages open. I clicked on them to quickly close them out, but then I realized I was on the company's wifi. I was the only worker

Other answer:

1

Probably not unless:
1. You where connected to and used the network to view Pornography which means if they really wanted to they could search through logs and find the porn or
2. Your company has airwatch software installed on your Phone that can search through your internet history. (Not very common)

If you did it on incognito or private browsing mode at home than number 2 shouldn't be a problem but if you where connected to the work wifi network while watching porn than you maybe screwed. I wouldn't mention it to anyone at work at all if I was you because there is a higher chance of them either not knowing or not caring than for you to get caught with the porn

Richard:
Technically you are committing theft if you use company resources for private activities without the company's permission. Many companies keep logs of the sites that have been accessed through their network for security reasons, together with the IP and MAC addresses involved and the particular WiFi hotspot to which each device was connected. Before I retired, the company I worked for dismissed several employees for inappropriate use of its IT facilities, and in some cases the matter was reported to the police.

Only use company facilities for the purposes the company allow. Some companies do not allow the connecting of private devices to their networks because of the security risks to the company.

Always ask the IT staff for permission to do any form of private activity including connecting your phone to their network and also for connecting to dubious sites.

Finally, make sure your resumé (CV) is up to date (except for watching porn). You might need it.

I hope this helps.

You might get fired. Hopefully, at your next job, you will learn, and keep the porn sites at home, not at work.
Hannah:
Probably not, don't look at porn on that tiny screen.
Angel:
