So they built Lurk From Home, a tool that tricks work chats and productivity-monitoring software into thinking someone's still at their computer using a Java plugin to intermittently move the mouse or play a media clip in the background to keep their screen active.

Adatia said he and Akbar didn't build Lurk From Home to enable people to be lazy, and he's mindful of companies that might perceive it that way and try to block their tool.

Lurk From Home may be a slightly more high-tech hack, but as more companies encourage remote work moving forward, Adatia said tools like it would become even more essential.

That's why he and Akbar are now building additional features to encourage productivity and make working from home less isolating, like reminders to take breaks and ways to connect with coworkers and network, Adatia said.
