Allow copy from Email+ for iOS to other AppConnect apps only

You can configure data loss prevention policies (DLPs) for Email+ for iOS, which involves specifying whether the device user can copy content from Email+ for iOS to any other app. You can specify whether the device user can copy content from Email+ for iOS only to other AppConnect apps, rather than all other apps. This allows device users to share content without also allowing the content to flow to non-AppConnect apps.

  • Would your security needs be better met by limiting copying only to other AppConnect apps, instead of all other apps?

Data loss prevention policies for Email+ for iOS are configured on the Core Admin Portal in one of the following places:

What Email+ for iOS users see for copy/paste

When you limit copying from Email+ for iOS to only other AppConnect apps, the device user is able to copy from Email+ for iOS, but can paste only into the same app or other AppConnect apps. If the device user tries to paste into a non-AppConnect app, the content is not available.

The device user can also see the Copy/Paste To data loss protection policy setting in [email protected] at Settings > Secure Apps > Email+.
