Outlook for iOS and Android Default App Signature App Configuration Policy Enhancement
Published May 16 2019 06:00 AM 11.7K Views

Several customers, especially in the government sector, have requested the ability to remove the default app signature, “Get Outlook for iOS” or “Get Outlook for Android”. For these customers, the default signature may act as an endorsement of a technology and/or provider, which may violate regulatory compliance requirements.


Building on our announcement in March regarding general app configuration support for Outlook for iOS and Android, we’re pleased to announce the availability to disable Outlook’s default app signature through app config. Like with the previously announced general app configuration settings, the default app signature is delivered through the Managed App Configuration for iOS or the Android managed configurations allowing deployment by any MDM solution.


Default app behavior


Default app signature


Indicates whether the app will use its default signature, “Get Outlook for [OS]”, during message composition. Users can add their own signature even when the default signature is disabled.

Like with our other app configuration experience, Intune’s App Configuration Policy experience has been updated to include this new setting for both iOS and Android Enterprise managed devices. In addition, we also added the “Allow user to change setting” for “Require Biometrics to access app” for iOS managed devices.

We hope you enjoy our continued focus on app configuration settings available within the Intune portal for Outlook for iOS and Android. For more information see, see Deploy app config settings.
