Not me, won't authenticate.
New version required? Or EGIT at its usual standard?

Yep no luck for me. "Authentication Failed" message every time. Have reloaded it 3 times to no avail.

Must be a problem with their spyware and employee tracking system.

Read the fine print before clicking the accept button for iscrew...you basically give them full rights to all personal data and your location. In the hands of this company I would be VERY concerned.

The solution is easy. 1 company phone and 1 privat phone...

Did you also provide "tin foil hats" along with that warning? Actually the "Information Assets Security Policy" prohibits any collection of personal data from personal devices. They may erase the personal device if e.g. it gets lost and it is not possible to erase company data only. I find that completely acceptable.

lospilotos,

I think your tin hat might be too tight...since when do they actually break any rules when you agree to it?

The above stands true

True, but they would still have to be able to, which they are not, at least not in my case. Therefore I'm not worried. How many have gotten into trouble from company accessed data from personal devices? Must be a lot by now...

But I'll admit, I don't recall at all agreeing to the company accessing my data. Where is that written?

Just ask the guys who ended up in the interrogation room with group security next to Terminal 2.
Great experience similar like CSI.

Just ask your crew on your next flight who got an invitation to group security. You will be surprised. Nearly all ranks affected.
Would not be surprised if you lospilotos will be the next one to experience this fantastic place full of cameras where they hand you out a plain sheet of paper to write down all your wrong doing.
The present at the end is a beautiful warning letter or termination of contract. Unfortunately one member of my family was treated there this way, one could say tortured.
Also guys from the icy JFK desaster a few years back ended there for complaining to FAA.

And this happened because the company was accessing personal data from a personal device through a company app?

Haha, I'll take my chances. This is all urban myths.

BTW, if you are worried about content on your devices, never bring them across country borders as customs have pretty much unlimited rights to access your content, without any probable cause...

Agreed lospilotos. Don't let a good dose of paranoia get in the way of a good story.
