This Familiar Popup Could Hold an Unwanted Surprise


If your business uses Microsoft 365, employees or yourself may have received a pop-up asking permission to access certain account data.

This article can assist you in making the best choice when this type of pop-up appears again.

What Is the "Permission Requested Pop-up"

A seemingly harmless window, called "Permission Requested Pop-up", periodically appears within applications like Outlook, Teams and SharePoint to prompt users to give an app or add-in access to their Microsoft account.

Users often quickly click the Accept button in order to close a pop-up, however when dealing with sensitive data contained within a Microsoft 365 account it should always be approached with care and discretion.
