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

The recommended state for this setting is: Disabled.


In high security environments, clipboard data should stay local to the system and not synced across devices, as it may contain very sensitive information that must be contained locally.


Clipboard contents will not be shareable to other devices.


To establish the recommended configuration, set the following Device Configuration Policy to Disabled:

To access the Device Configuration Policy from the Intune Home page:

Click Devices

Click Configuration profiles

Click Create profile

Select the platform (Windows 10 and later)

Select the profile (Custom)

Click Create

Enter a Name

Click Next

Configure the following Setting

Name: <Enter name>
Description: <Enter Description>
OMA-URI: ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Privacy/AllowCrossDeviceClipboard
Data type: Integer
Value: 0

Select OK

Continue through the Wizard to complete the creation of the profile (profile assignments, applicability etc.)

Note: More than one configuration setting from each of the Configuration profiles (ex: Administrative Templates, Custom etc.) can be added to each Device Configuration Policy.

Default Value:

Enabled. (Clipboard contents are allowed to be synchronized across devices logged in under the same Microsoft account or Azure AD account.)
