Removing Add-ins from Outlook in Office 365 – 3rd Party Data Sharing and your corporate network

Tuesday, December 12th 2017

In my last post I’ve talked about installing the 3rd party Add-ins in Outlook for Office 365. As I said there are many Add-ins from embedding google search into Word, printing email as a PDF etc. I’m more concerned about Add-ins in #Outlook because you don’t what these 3rd party reads your data , I mean your email data unless you read each 3rd part’s privacy terms and condition. So if you are concerned about security like me or dealing with a an enterprise environment then these add-ins may not work you. some of them will such as Bing , Google but printing email as print etc may not work.

So I’ll walk through here removing these add-ins
