18.8.31.1 Ensure 'Allow Clipboard synchronization across devices' is set to 'Disabled'

Information

This policy setting determines whether Clipboard contents can be synchronized across devices.

The recommended state for this setting is: Disabled.

Rationale:

Due to privacy concerns, clipboard data should stay local to the system and not synced across devices.

Impact:

If you disable this policy setting, Clipboard contents cannot be shared to other devices.

Solution

To establish the recommended configuration via GP, set the following UI path to Disabled:

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\System\OS Policies\Allow Clipboard synchronization across devices

Default Value:

Enabled.
