What can I do with AVD watermarking?

  • Enable QR code watermarks on Azure Virtual Desktops
  • Scan the QR code watermarks to discover the session's connectionID
  • Use the session's connectionID to find the session information via Azure Virtual Desktop Insights or Azure Monitor Log Analytics


Why is this important?

Alongside Screen capture protection in Azure Virtual Desktop, watermarking protects content on Azure Virtual Desktop from being stolen, used, or altered without the owner's permission. QR code watermarks allow you to trace the session's information.


How can I use it?

Watermarking is currently available for full desktops and Windows Desktop clients. Learn how to enable watermarking on Azure Virtual Desktop here.
