Protect the privacy of your documents when sharing screen
With remote meetings on apps like Teams now commonplace, there’s an increased risk that private Office files may be inadvertently exposed while sharing your screen. So we have introduced new security policies in Office to address this issue. This feature now prevents screen capture and screen sharing of sensitive documents that were previously tagged with Microsoft information protection policies. If you try to share the screen of a document for which you do not have edit permissions, the action will be automatically blocked.
To update to Office Insider Preview Build, open any Office program and go to File> Account> Update Options> Update Now.
