    My current rant topic is clients who use Whats App. I have just received one saying I have sent you an email. I get the same message by email and What's App. I have the weak privacy settings so someone can tell when I was last on What's App. I find this useful for knowing when my under 18 daughter was last on the phone. I'm not stalking her, I'm responsible for her welfare. And I don't mind using it to know when my 18 year old son was last on the phone because in theory he's an adult but in reality I have to run a cover mission.

    But now this is mixing business and personal contacts and it is driving me utterly fu[king bats. I already said please don't use What's App as it makes a mess of my file maintenance protocols. And still. I..get...a....message...saying...I...have...sent.. .you...an...email.
    Why on earth are you using a work phone number for private and personal stuff though?

    Most modern handsets accommodate twin SIM setup. At least I think they do to save you the hassle of carrying two handsets! I know OnePlus have in all the models Ive used. Ive a UK mobile number and an Irish mobile on the one handset.

    One handset means dedicated personal number to Whatsapp. So Whatsapp work isnt connected whatseover.

    Perhaps pretty obvious but we also use "Find my" in the family so everyone knows where everyone is. Probably useful if someone goes missing but also generally just useful as it cuts out all the "where are you" and makes picking kids up pretty easy.

    I’m not fully sure I understand the problem but I have a personal phone and a work phone to separate these concerns and have had this since like forever. With the 24/7 working life it’s handy to be able to switch off but I also don’t like having IT’s mandated spyware on my own phone because I like to be able to say and do whatever I feel like without running any risks with work as a result. And it means I keep all the work stuff in one place.

    We use WhatsApp a lot in work seeing as it’s a more direct way to communicate and gets past all the IT bullshit and no international rates. Also with clients and vendors. In the US a lot of people don’t have international dialling plans so very handy way to work around all of that.
