The “third eye” is watching tech workers in China

The phrase “third eye” refers to the special software “Third Eye”, which is used to monitor the tech workforce. The Chinese name of this software is DiSanZhiYan and it is found on every laptop in a technology company in Shanghai.

With the Third Eye software, a gaming company in Shanghai, allows an IT Manager to monitor the screens of all employees’ laptops, record chats, monitor all documents processed, and closely monitor the activity of each employee on the Internet.

The point here is that all employees in this company know that they are being monitored in real time, while the software takes care to inform the Management if it notices behavior that its algorithm considers suspicious, such as, for example, job search or watching video streaming content.

The job of this software is to create a performance report for each employee on a weekly basis, depending on the time spent on real work and other online work. In China, the increasing use of such software in the workplace tends to become commonplace, a fact that raises many questions and concerns.
