RELEASE: New Office 365 ProPlus Privacy Control for Telemetry – “Neither”

For folks concerned about Office telemetry sent to Microsoft, we’re introduced a new privacy controls switch:

imageUser data and personal information sent in Office telemetry
Starting with Version 1908 of Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted) Office 365 ProPlus, a new setting was released: “Neither”

No diagnostic data about Office client software running on the user’s device is collected and sent to us. This option, however, significantly limits our ability to detect, diagnose, and remediate problems your users may encounter using Office.

It is expected to be available in Semi-Annual Channel (Standard) in January 2020.
