    Companies are wary about what employees are doing on their smartphones. Be it data loss or time-wasting, a growing number of employers are actively stopping staff from using certain apps on company-controlled devices.

    After surveying the roughly 6,000 companies that uses its mobile security management software, MobileIron determined the top 10 consumer apps that are most often blocked or blacklisted at companies:

    1. Dropbox
    2. Angry Birds
    3. Facebook
    4. Microsoft OneDrive
    5. Google Drive
    6. Box
    7. Whatsapp
    8. Twitter
    9. Skype
    10. SugarSync
