Has anyone else had a false high reading in Office 365 Secure Score report?

 

With the implementation of some of the actions available, we have been able to raise our secure score to a higher rating lately.

 

However, overnight our score jumped by 190 extra p

Hi, 

 

Almost all actions related to Devices are being handled in Intune but none of the scores are assigned. Is there a trick to it, I've tried to click on Learn More and close it but no scores are being given.

 

Thanks
