The coronavirus pandemic and subsequent remote work upsurge not only generated a spike in businesses using virtual private networks, but a new study shows that people working from home are putting in longer hours than usual.

New data from NordVPN Teams revealed people in the U.S. increased their average workday by almost 40%, adding an extra three hours — the largest jump worldwide. The UK, France, Canada and Spain are seeing a two-hour increase.
