A Growing List of Companies Are Now Using Webcams to Monitor Their Remote Employees

The Infinite Brief
With coronavirus causing a massive surge in employees working from home, more and more companies are turning to tools like Sneek, a group video conference software that’s always on by default.

Sneek features a “wall of faces” of employees at a company, automatically taking a photo of employees through their webcam every one to five minutes.

Sneek’s user base has rapidly grown in recent weeks as companies transition to work-from home.

The software’s interface lets people set their webcam to automatically photograph them every one or five minutes, depending on how frequently they want their image to update (or how frequently their boss requires it).
