I cannot find any clear instructions on how to enable RMS for MacOS computers using Mac Office 2016. I can use labels in Outlook 2016 for mac to send encrptyed and not forward emails. 

 

However, I cannot protect any documents in Word, Excel etc of Office 2016 Mac. The options to protect are not available under Review tab in Word.

 

I have installed the RMS app for Mac OS.

I might be answering this a little late (only just seen it) but there's an FAQ specifically for Mac that might help: How do I configure a Mac computer to protect and track documents?

 

Now that Office 2016 natively supports Mac, there's no need to install the RMS sharing app for Mac (which has fewer capabilities).
