Microsoft Information Protection solutions help you better protect your sensitive information, wherever it lives or travels – across devices, apps, cloud services and on-premises. Our goal is to provide a consistent and comprehensive approach to discovering, classifying, labeling and protecting sensitive data.

 

Earlier this year we released built-in sensitivity labeling in Office apps for Mac, iOS and Android. These capabilities enable users to easily apply sensitivity labels to documents and emails – based on the policies defined by your organization. The built-in labeling experiences are integrated directly into Office apps – there’s no need for any special plugins or add-ons.

 

We’re expanding to additional Office apps, and now sensitivity labeling is available in Office apps for Windows. With this release, end-user driven sensitivity labeling is now available in:

  • New! Office for Windows: Word, PowerPoint, Excel & Outlook
  • Office for Mac: Word, PowerPoint, Excel & Outlook
  • Office mobile apps for iOS: Word, PowerPoint & Excel (Outlook coming soon)
  • Office mobile apps for Android: Word, PowerPoint & Excel (Outlook coming soon)

The labeling experience in Office apps for Windows is similar to the labeling experience on other platforms – making it easy and familiar for your end-users. Once you define and configure your sensitivity labels and policies, the same labels are published out and made available across the supported Office apps.

 

The screenshots below show examples of the end-user experience in Office apps for Windows. Users select the Sensitivity drop-down menu to view the available labels and select the appropriate label. The experience is similar across Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook.

Getting started

Similar to publishing labels for use in other Office apps, you need to first configure your organization’s sensitivity labels in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center or the Microsoft 365 Compliance center. If your organization has sensitivity labels configured in the Azure portal for Azure Information Protection, you will first need to migrate your labels to the Microsoft 365 Compliance center, and then the labels can be used by the supported Office apps. You can find more information on migration steps here.

 

You can also learn more about sensitivity labels in our documentation, and additional details on supported Office apps is including in this article. Sensitivity labeling in Office apps for Windows is rolling out now to customers who have Office 365 E3 or E5 (built-in sensitivity labeling is supported on the Office 365 Pro Plus version of Office), and the rollout is expected to be completed by the end of September or October, 2019.     

    

We’re excited to expand sensitivity labeling to Office for Windows, enabling more comprehensive protection of sensitive information across your environment. We plan to release sensitivity labeling in the Office apps for the Web and Outlook mobile soon. Please check the Microsoft 365 roadmap for the latest information.

Hi @Adam Jung - a few questions here please...

  1. I notice that you have your user name appear under in the Sensitivity client - this is shown as MeganB in bold, how do you get that to appear? Is that a setting or available in the AIP (UL) client by default in the next release? Would be interested to have it
  2. "Office mobile apps for iOS: Word, PowerPoint & Excel (Outlook coming soon)" - does this mean that if you have authenticator on your device (...iOS) for me), and the Word app - that is all you need? That is, the AIP Viewer app is not required as MIP is now built in natively to the Word, Excel, etc iOS app to render the encrypted/confidential file?

Details on the above would be appreciated - cheers

Hi @Joe McGiven Corban, including @Mike Paer who can hopefully help clarify.

Hi @Joe McGiven Corban:

  1. The Sensitivity menu built-in to the Office for Windows applications always has the signed-in user's email address shown at the top of the menu. Because the Office for Windows applications support multiple accounts being signed in simultaneously, showing the email address in the menu helps clarify which organization's sensitivity labels are being shown. I don't believe the Azure Information Protection Unified Labeling client has this or plans to add it.
  2. Yes - the Sensitivity option is built-in to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on iOS and Android. If you are signed in with your account that has Microsoft Information Protection unified labels set up, you should see the Sensitivity option in the app. You can read more about this in the Office documentation. These apps are capable of opening and protecting encrypted/confidential Office documents without the need for the AIP Viewer app.

What will happen if there is an existing UL client installed on the machine? Will it show 2 'sensitivity' options or will one auto disable?

@Thijs Lecomte The Azure Information Protection unified labeling client can't run at the same time as the built-in labeling experience. More info at the bottom of this article. Scroll down to:

Will the built-in Sensitivity feature run alongside the Azure Information Protection client in Office for Windows?

No. The built-in Sensitivity feature is turned off if the Azure Information Protection client is loaded in Office for Windows. If you have the Azure Information Protection client installed, but you want to use the built-in Sensitivity feature instead, you can:

@Thijs Lecomte I believe UL client takes priority. I've just tested it on my devices and I needed to disable AIP add-in in Office desktop apps, (one by one... unfortunately, or you can do it via policies of course) and after reopening, the sensitivity button showed up again but now it's located after "Dictate". Android labels are showing up properly, Office web apps don't work yet :( I've noticed that in desktop apps the policy tips are not showing? Or is it only me?

Fantastic news, highly anticipated change, hopefully soon it will come out of the beta stage and we could use it in all Office apps on all platforms without to use any clients or agents. I'm an agentless admin, I don't do clients, agents, things that need to be installed via GPO or sitting in the tray and crashing or need to be signed in to work properly.
