It's no big secret that people areusing their work phone for more than just work, but I was surprised to see just how many people are trying to find love on the company dime. Wandera, an enterprise mobile security and data management provider, looked at over 100,000 devices to find out just how we're using dating apps on our work devices. And it turns out, just because you have a company phone, that's not going to stop you from swiping.
And there's a lot of swiping — in fact, at least one of the top 10 dating apps is present on 1.8 percent of corporate phones, and dating app usage has grown by 69 percent in the past 12 months on work devices. Why would you be doing it on your work phone? Well, it shows an interesting twist in work phone use. "It cements the idea that the line between business and personal mobile use is becoming increasingly blurred as employees continue to treat work phones as if they were their own," Joel Windels, VP marketing at Wandera, tells Bustle.
It's sort of depressing, because it means people are on their work phones all the time, but at least they're getting some play on there too, right? The data gives a lot of insight into the time and effort we spend trying to find love— even when we're on our work's phones (and data plans).
