This BYOD policy explains that your employees are allowed to use their personal smartphones, laptops and/or tablets for work.

Get started

Document Overview

With a BYOD policy, you will not have to buy equipment for every employee, thus it can save costs and help set your business up for success. However, allowing employees to use their own devices also presents higher security risks and potential loss of privacy. Therefore, you will need this policy to effectively address all potential issues. 

It is recommended that you discuss with your employees and ensure they understand the policy. Moreover, it is necessary to set up relevant protocols to better manage the use of employees’ personal devices in the workplace.

Use this BYOD Policy if:

  • You would like to allow your employees to use their personal devices for work;
  • You would like to explain to the employee why this policy is put in place and how they should follow it; and
  • You would like to have a record of this process in the event of any legal action.

What does the BYOD cover?

  • Documents the details about reimbursement and security management ;
  • Informs your employees what devices are permitted and what are not permitted; and
  • Sets out the liability for the breach of the policy.

Other names for BYOD include:

  • Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT);
  • BYOD Security Policy; and
  • BYOD Agreement.
