1.9 Ensure that 'Users can consent to apps accessing company data on their behalf' is set to 'No'

Information

Require administrators to provide consent for the apps before use.

Rationale:

Unless Azure Active Directory is running as an identity provider for third-party applications, do not allow users to use their identity outside of the cloud environment. User profiles contain private information such as phone numbers and email addresses which could then be sold off to other third parties without requiring any further consent from the user.

Impact:

It might be an additional request that administrators need to fulfill quite often.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.

Solution

Azure Console

Go to Azure Active Directory

Go to Users

Go to User settings

Click on Manage how end users launch and view their applications

Set Users can consent to apps accessing company data on their behalf to No

Default Value:

By default, 'Users can consent to apps accessing company data on their behalf' is set to 'Yes'.
