OneDrive auto login (Security / information safety issue) RRS feed

  • Question

  • OneDrive support asked me to open a ticket here.

    The basic issue is that with the Prompted Known Folder Move of OneDrive, nothing will happen unless a user stumbles on the icon in the task pane, and logs in.

    From an information security standpoint, this is horrible.

    Silent known folder move might work, but it's not clear from the documentation if we need AAD free or premium.

    So ... ideally, OneDrive, if the GPO to move the known folders (either silent or prompted) is set, really needs to pop up a login dialog box like Teams does. 

    Without doing that, most users will ignore it, and the information wouldn't be placed into the Corporate cloud. This is an information risk as well as a security problem.

    Secondly, if SSO is required, apparently this requires Azure Active Directory, but none of the documentation is clear on what level of Azure Active Directory is required to make OneDrive login.

    Can anyone help?

  • This is the same issue as here: 

    Microsoft supported asked me to open a new issue instead of tagging onto the old one. (Thread creep ...)

  • One Drive uses SSO to login and it is a silent login. As for the Azure AD version, SSO is available on all editions of Azure AD. While in the Free and Basic editions, SSO configuration is limited to 10 applications across the tenant. While in the Premium editions, there is no limitation of applications that can be configured.
