Wifi for helper??
« on: December 08, 2016, 05:25:27 pm »
We just recently installed wifi, and our helper is curious and wants to know the password. I know it's a big no-no to give it out, but how do I tell her that I can't give it?

Or is there a way I can allow her access for a limited time? (ex. day off)

Madali lang yang prob mo sis..ipaalam mo how much yun monthly bill nyo for the wifi. Then sabihin mo na kung like nya kumonek, need nya magbayad or salary deduction.just to discourage her...for family use kamo yun..inde kasama sa perks nya..wag na wag mo bigay ang password kasi pag ginawa mo yun e binibigyan mo sya ng lisensya na mag-fb, chat at surf kahit oras ng trabaho..trust me.been there.done that..makukunsumi ka lang.hehe..

tell her that it is for family use... na babagal ang connectivity kapag marami kayo na gumagamit, hence limited lang talaga ang may access.

As a show of good will, I shared my wifi to my helper pero she doesn't abuse naman. In fact when we had a new hire, and first night lang niya she was already asking if she can get the password, she was the one whose face was hindi mapinta.  Very protective siya of us.

We share our wifi password to our helpers. As long as nagagawa pa din naman nila trabaho nila ng maayos, wala naman problema. IMO, pag tayo nga malayo sa loved ones natin, wifi is a must talaga so ganoon din naman sila. Kesa gumastos pa sila ng load nila, save na lang nila dahil makaka communicate sila with their family through internet. Besides, tayo din naman sa trabaho, sa mga restaurants, coffee shops, etc, pag di kaya ng 3g kung naka line man, we tend to ask for wifi. Parehas lang din. At the end of the day, pare pareho pa din naman tayong tao na basic necessity na talaga ang internet.

No, because now pa nga lang na nagloload sila for internet use eh halos di na sila matulog, lalo na siguro pag naka-wifi pa sila..in fact, yan ang source ng kunsumisyon ko sa kanila, they dont know how to limit yung surfing, fb chat etc..kung sino-sino pa kachat  na lalaki to the point na 1am na sila natutulog then di makagising sa umaga at ako pa gigising sa kanila, tapos babawi ng tulog sa araw, papabantayan ko anak ko tutulugan nya..the other day lang sobrang puyat nila kahit alam nilang may klase kinabukasan, nung tinawag namin sila para aalis na sana papuntang school, aba dun pa lang sila nagising, so ang ending nagmamadali si yaya di na naligo, pati pagsuklay sa loob na ng kotse ginawa...todo inis ko kasi sarili na lang nya aasikasuhin nya di pa magawa, kami na nga ni hubby nagpreprepare ng 2 kids namin at ang gagawin na lang nya eh kumain, maligo at magbihis...napaka-irresponsible kaya no way! Depende sa tao, kung responsible sila baka bigyan ko access kaso malala tong mga helpers ko

Depende na sa helper.  With me, I give it to my yaya since efficient parin naman siya.  In fact she is better off watching cable on tv when the baby is sleeping than to surf sa phone.  Hindi naman abusado.  It's not wifi, na sa helper na yan. Kahit may wifi password or wala, kung hindi talaga gagawin ang trabaho, hindi talaga gagawin ang trabaho.

Definitely not. Just too many potential headaches I'd rather not deal with.

Of all the househelp I've hired, only one has asked. I just said no, plain & simple. Wala nang explanation. Plus, I made my face show that I'm surprised she even asked, hehe. So the others learned never to ask. So far, this househelp has been with me for a year.

My friends have had too many issues with their wifi & househelp. One even thought she had the ideal yaya and had free use of the wifi because she showed DAW that she was really responsible. Then, one day, while yaya was on her day off, my friend opened the tablet that her baby uses (for digital books, baby-friendly games, etc.) and was surprised to see yaya's Facebook page still logged in in the device. Lo and behold, this yaya had so many sex chat partners on FB (all sex chats made while she was supposedly watching over my friend's baby). Kaya, be careful if and when you decide to give your wifi passwords to your househelp.

^ I don't know how to make that look.  Though I would willingly give it to someone I believe I can trust, that one time that I had a new one, I was really shocked that she even asked on her first night.

If you can't trust your wifi password to your maid, why would you trust her in your house around your possessions and your kids?

If the reason you don't want to give your maid internet access fearing she would neglect her duties and spends more time surfing, then why even have her?  If she is the type that neglects her duty, she will be that type of person wifi or no wifi.

I suggest you give her the password and put a curfew on wifi.  Put the modem in your bedroom and turn it off when you go to bed.  You can turn it on and off anytime you want at whatever reason.

With the crappy service I used to get from globe, hindi ko pwede ishare. Babagal for sure. I use it both for work and leisure, so hangga't maaari, for my own use lang sya. Meron naman syang TV and cellphone, I think enough na yun for entertainment. Kung gusto nya magsurf, sorry to say, kailangan magrent na lang sya outside or connect elsewhere. If she wants to contact her family/friends, pwede naman itext or tawagan. Hindi ko na dapat sagot pati pagfafacebook, chat, youtube at browse nya ng kung ano-ano pang ibang sites. (Yeah, you can see I'm a real joy to work for, LOL.)

But if I didn't have to pay so much for the connection and unlimited sya at mabilis talaga and there's no hassle whatsoever with it (how I wish), I guess okay lang as long as nagagawa nya ng mabuti yung mga kailangan gawin at hindi nya ginagamit sa kasamaan and sana responsible naman din sya sa usage. Pero madami akong kilala na hindi na lang talaga nila binibigay. Medyo common din kasi ang cases na walang control sa sarili yung mga helpers pagdating sa paggamit. Totoo naman kasi na nakaka-addict minsan. Dun pa nga lang sa panahon ng landline pa lang ang uso, ang dami nang phone pals at unauthorized long distance calls, di ba, LOL. What more ngayon. So I really can't blame others for wanting to prevent these kinds of problems.

Just my POV. Merry christmas!

With my baby's previous yaya, naging problem namin ang WiFi. Mas nag-concentrate na sya sa FB kesa sa anak ko. So I told myself (and so did my husband) na yung susunod na yaya, walang access sa WiFi. Buti na lang, elderly na yung yaya nya ngayon. No idea sya sa WiFi.  ;D

Better kung hindi bibigay ang password.  Swerte ko lang kasi wala talagang cellphone yung kb kong isa and yung meron naman, she doesn't over use her phone.  She can watch tv nga e and even that she doesn't abuse.

My last helper/yaya for my mom was nice and we trusted her a lot.  Too much,  now that I think about it.  We allowed her access to wifi as long as she finishes her work.  We saw naman that di affected work nya so we allowed her.  Unfortunately, she met a guy online sa FB and naging sila.  So ang ending, nagtanan sila after two months of being magdyowa.  First eyeball=tanan.
Sad na she didn't even have the decency to say goodbye.  Tumakas na lang bigla.  Nakiusap nako before sa kanya na if the time comes she wants to leave na, let me know first and wait lang till we find a replacement kasi alam nya na di pwede walang nagaalaga sa mom ko kasi paralyzed.

I would prefer if the helper will wait until I see that she is disciplined enough to use the wifi password :)

You can just key in the password to her cellphone. But, you have to expect that may times na magbabad yan sa internet and hindi na maka focus sa work. From time to time, me and my husband work from home. Kapag napapansin na namin na medyo tutok na siya sa cellphone niya, we tell her na patayin muna yung wifi kasi bumabagal yung connection and we need it sa work.
