Yesterday a friend mentioned to me that he would never put his work email on his personal iPhone because that gives them access to the rest of the phone. I thought that was a ridiculous concept as there's no possible way an email account would give permission for anything beyond that account, right? Apparently I was very wrong. I use my personal phone to access my work email and calendar through our Exchange Server as it allows me to keep on top of things outside of work. I pretty much do it so I can be a better employee. After doing some research, this apparently gives my IT Department the ability to completely wipe my iPhone remotely. How was I not notified of this when I added the account to my iPhone. Shouldn't iOS notify me that this is a possibility? I'm in a little bit of shock that such a simple thing could lead to big problems without me knowing. This also begs the question: what else can my employer see on my personal iPhone? I can't seem to find any concrete answers on google.
