With more people getting work done and collaborating with others on their mobile devices, organizations are finding it even harder to secure their sensitive data. We see many organizations making it a priority to better secure their sensitive content no matter the device being used to access and share it. To help organizations empower their employees to work anywhere at any time while helping to protect their content, we’re pleased to announce we have extended the Office 365 Data Loss Prevention Policy Tips to OneDrive mobile apps for Android, iOS and Universal Windows.

Policy tips are contextual, user-facing notifications that educate people when they’re about to send, share or work with sensitive data, such as credit card, passport or driver’s license numbers. Policy tips help empower and educate users, while still allowing them to get their jobs done with enhanced security and stay compliant with your data protection policies. With this addition, your organization’s Data Loss Prevention policies, related to content stored in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business, are now viewable on mobile devices. This complements what is already supported today with the web and Office 2016 clients, including Outlook.

How Data Loss Prevention Policy Tips works

With Data Loss Prevention, documents stored in OneDrive for Business are scanned for sensitive information and evaluated against company policies configured in Office 365. As users work with documents in the OneDrive mobile app, they will see a policy tip for documents that contain sensitive information. Depending on the policies and user action, the tips may provide information about what triggered a policy violation or options to override and submit a false positive report if access to the content is blocked.

Below are examples of how Policy Tips is displayed on each platform:
