As my question suggests, does Microsoft Forms have any input validation or some kind of filter on the backend to prevent someone from inserting a malicious link or some injection in a response field?

I'm new to Microsoft forms and I haven't seen anything in regards to this which is why I'm asking.

@bryant125 You can decide how you want someone to respond to your forms to prevent any insertion of malicious links. For instance, yes or no, or have them choose choose answers to like multiple choice format. I hope this helps

@claudInnovate What if you need full responses/paragraphs?

@bryant125  If you set if up for them to answer openly, then yes they can submit any link within the response. However if your company has antivirus running on the machines it should be able to scan all documents to let you know.
