Add a detailed description...So here it goes I've been looking for answers and cant find any please professional answers only.. so I was in the bathroom and I decided to try and look at porn while on the toilet. But once I reached the site it said it was blocked and didnt let me go through..... I then realized I was connected to the company wifi as I stated above it doesnt require any credentials to log in it just comes up with a page that says you have to agree to there terms and hit accept and your in....my worry is would the IT administrator be able to track it back to me like literally track it back to me and say hey you did this. Once I went to the page it said blocked and wouldnt let me view it but my concern is would the IT guy be able to see someone tried to visit porn and then literally track it back to me say through my IP adress or my MAC adress I posted this on another site and got different answers I'm looking for something solid and definite. Here are some details I used a Samsung galaxy s9 and my phone name is just galaxy s9 it doesnt say my name or anything I never was able to access the site it was blocked but I'm wondering if they could pinpoint it to me or would this be hard to do would they need a court order and things of that nature to actually go through the process of getting to me... please help I'm worried I'm gonna lose my job thanks a ton for real and professional answers

    There is no way for us to know. All we 'know' is that it was blocked.

    We don't know if your IT blacklists or whitelists sites. We don't know if they use a service or does it on their own. We have no way to know if attempts to reach blocked sites are logged. And if logged, we have no way to know if such a log is monitored. (Or if not logged/monitored, perhaps alerts are sent.)

    All of it depends on how IT configured things plus what their procedures are for handling any logs.

    It seems likely that attempts are logged and not reviewed (perhaps unless the number of attempts reaches some threshold).

    The only way to find out is to ask your IT group and get an open, honest answer. But since it's already happened, nothing can be done about it.

    Of course, you probably want your phone configured not to connect to the company network unless you manually request it.

    It may have just been blocked. Unless someone is reviewing the attempts and keeping a log, you may be safe. The only thing that may complicate this is if you use that same phone for legitimate company business. The "offending" device id would be the same and then they may be able to track it back if the review the data. That's one reason why you should never use the company for adult sites or your own phone for that matter. They usually have malware and not worth the risk. If you feel the need, get a cheap tablet, no personal info on it at all. If it get infected just do a hard reboot.

    Yes, it is possible to track the IP/ MAC address by the Company's IT person. Moreover if you got this phone from your company, then is more easy to trace.

    But one safe thing is that, this website is blocked. And you could enter to see what did you want.

    But however some risks are there. It is better never watch this type of website without making prior protection.

    However watching these types of movies is illegal in many countries.
