Glad that I read this, and I feel much better now being a jerk and making my employers utilize their own resources instead of me providing my phone.

My career employer uses Active Directory and Office 365. They wanted me to install MS app for Multi-Factor-Authentication. They didn't want to pay my phone bill though, or provide a phone for me to use.
As a result of this, the AD team had to correct everyone's accounts so that MFA could use people's desk phones. A problem happened when the marketing team got a hold of the IVR (automated operator) system and changed the direct dial number. Oops

Now my part time employer (I works 1 day monthly) wants me to put in their ADP payroll app AND some "Hot Schedules" app. That ain't happening either.

I have read the "permissions" for both MS & ADP and they both want my pictures, contacts, location... And the "schedule" app wants blutooth.
