Can we block file transfer from Windows PC to Android phone?

Hi All,

I am looking for a method to block end-users from transferring confidential data from Windows 10 devices to Android phones using Microsoft Intune and/or Microsoft Endpoint DLP.

I look forward to a guide for this.

Sincerely,
DatTM

This can be done by blocking\restricting access to Bluetooth using either Device restriction profile or Device control setting.

Hi @RahulJindal-2267 ,

I mean blocking the file transfer via USB cable.

Can also be done by the means of device control policy as long as you can tick the boxes against the pre-reqs

Hi there,

You can restrict copying the data to USB devices in Microsoft Intune by creating a custom profile.

You can set app protection policies for Office mobile apps on devices running Windows, iOS/iPadOS, or Android to protect company data. These policies let you set policies such as app-based PIN or company data encryption, or more advanced settings to restrict how you cut, copy, paste, and save-as features are used by users between managed and unmanaged apps.
