Using sensitivity labels to manage access to SharePoint sites on unmanaged devices

This week is a follow-up on my post of a few weeks ago about accessing SharePoint and OneDrive content on unmanaged devices.

The enforced restrictions can enable a read only option for attachments in the browser and can completely block attachments in the browser. In this post I’ll walk through the required configurations, with the focus on conditional access, and I’ll show the end-user experience. Configuration Let’s start with looking at the configuration.
