DIGITAL HYGIENE FOR YOUR home office video :

KEEPING PRIVATE THINGS PRIVATE : Many of us are now living with grownup versions of the ''I came to school naked nightmare: Text to your friends showing in your work chats.

The embarrassing self-portrait you painted popping up in a video chat on the wall behind you. Your collection of cannabis cookbooks appearing in the background of a video call with your boss.

''When you do these work videos Zooms, you're letting people into your home, but you're still in a work environment,'' Ms. Ettari said. From a legal perspective, that means you are still protected from discriminatory actions.

For example, if you have a disability that your employers did not know about, they cannot retaliate against you, based on that information. Of course, much of what we do want people to see has nothing to do with legality.

Our concerns are about the impressions we make : ''First of all turn off your camera when you don't need it,'' said Lorrie Cranor, the director of the CyLab Security of Privacy Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.

Or ''get a tiny webcam cover,'' said Ms. Brown, the author of. ''Gracious: A Practical Primer on Charm, Tact and Unsinkable Strength.''  ''You don't have to worry about turning  your video off. You will truly know that nobody can see you. That's a lot of security for $8,'' Dr. Cranor said in a. Post-it. or. a piece of opaque tape works, too.

When your camera is on, Dr. Cranor said, '' make your computer is facing the wall.'' Other than your cat dropping in, it should be hard for anyone to get into your frame.''

Both Dr. Cranor and Ms. Brown suggested making use of virtual backgrounds, Finally, Dr. Cranor said, ''never share your whole screen, just share the particular application,'' such as Microsoft PowerPoint or World.

If you're hosting the meeting, you can disable other people's ability to share their screens.

''IF SOMEONE ASKED YOU BEFORE'' Do you want to sign up for a world in which your co-workers are inside of your house all the time?', the answer would probably be 'no', said Kelly Williams Brown, an etiquette expert.

Well, here we are. One in four American workers polled recently had been working from home entirely.

The line between our personal and professional spaces maybe blurred, but in many ways, the rules of conduct are the same. For starters, it is still not OK to expose indecent gestures to your co-workers, as. Jefferey Toobin Toobin, a writer for The New Yorker, did in a recent Zoom call. Nor should you look at pornography on your work computer - unless that is literally your job.

With our offices situated steps away from our living rooms and kitchens, it is easy to forget that our work computer is still for work, and that our colleagues are not our roommates.

''When people are sitting in their homes, it's easy to multitask, to go between work and home,'' said Samantha Ettari, the privacy counsel at Kramer Levin Naftalis Frankel.'' It's tempting to do everything on your work laptop.'' But, she said, it's important to ''protect your private space''.


I think it's a good idea to at least be present at the beginning of the call,'' Ms. Brown said. ''If it's a meeting where you're not presenting, it's nice to show up, smile, greet people and once people start talking, turn your camera off,'' she added.

After all, once upon a time, many of us used to put on professional costumes and commute to our offices. If you were able to put in that amount of effort, you should probably still be willing to show your face on the screen.

Appearing on video might also be a nice way to support your co-workers. When people have their cameras off and are muted and only one person is visible and speaking, Ms. Brown said, ''there's something eerie about it.''

She added. ''If it's a shy co-worker or you want to be able to give body language feedback in real time, that's a good reason to keep your camera on.''
