So you’re about to quit your job – congratulations!! It’s (typically) a very exciting time. But it can also be a bit overwhelming as there are so many loose ends you need to tie up before you go. One of things you need to do but may forget about is to delete things from your work computer. Let’s be real, we all use our work computer for non-work things. Here are five things to make sure you delete from your computer if you’re about to quit.
- Personal Files Like Photos and Tax Documents. You don’t want your personal information in the hands of someone else.
- Your browser history. No one needs to know the types of questions you’ve been Googling, or all the non-work related websites you’ve been visiting.
- Any personal apps, software or extensions you download. Especially if it’s a bank app or Venmo, delete them. Also remember to log out of any active applications on your last day of work.
- Personal messaging apps and cookies. You do not want your employer to see all of your personal messages to friends and family, especially if it involves you complaining about your job.
- If you’ve had your browser save passwords automatically to make your life easier, make sure to clear them all.
