We're pleased to announce Watermarking for Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) is now in public preview. This feature helps prevent sensitive information from being captured on client endpoints by enabling watermarks to appear as part of remote desktops.

What can I do with AVD watermarking?

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


Why is this important?

Alongside AVD screen capture protection, watermarking protects content on AVD 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?

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