"Companies are using tools to spy on employees," she reiterated in the video's caption. "You can tell if your job is spying on you through this remote working tip. Thanks to the rise of remote working and the great resignation this is now a thing."
Her video was soon flooded with concerned TikTokers, with one writing: "Uh oh I gotta stop venting so much on Teams."
