Safe Links API

Copper Contributor

Hi all,

I'm confused about the Safe Links feature which is called "Do not rewrite URLs, do checks via SafeLinks API only".

 

There are two descriptions which are contradictory to me.

 

1st:

2nd:

  • Do not rewrite URLs, do checks via SafeLinks API only: If this setting is selected (on), no URL wrapping takes place but the URLs are scanned prior to message delivery. In supported versions of Outlook (Windows, Mac, and Outlook on the web), Safe Links is called exclusively via APIs at the time of URL click.
    (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/defender-office-365/safe-links-about)

So what exactly happens, if I enable the API check only? Are links scanned prior delivery or not?

 

Thanks
