The concept of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) describes the trend of employees using their private mobile devices to manage corporate data from anywhere at any time. BYOD can increase employees' productivity and be cost-cutting for organizations. To implement BYOD, organizations are dependent on employees’ acceptance of BYOD, because employees' participation usually is voluntary. As employees' acceptance is affected by uncertainty, we investigate the influence of security, privacy, and legal concerns on the intention to use BYOD mobile devices. A research model is developed based on the theory of reasoned action (TRA) and the technology acceptance model (TAM), which is tested by means of structural equation modeling (SEM) with data collected from 151 employees. Our results indicate a significant impact of the concerns on employees’ acceptance. Moreover, our study reveals employees' indecision towards their intention to use their private mobile devices for working purposes. Several implications for future research and practitioners are given.
