Sensitivity Labels

Microsoft 365 uses sensitivity labels to ensure that restricted and confidential information stored in the system can only be shared to UWM users or guest users. Sensitivity labels allow classification of files, emails and SharePoint sites with sensitive information as either Sensitive or Restricted.

  • Items marked as Sensitive can be shared with people at UWM and people outside of UWM that have been added as a guest member to a Microsoft Team or Outlook Group.
  • Items marked as Restricted can only be shared with people at UWM.


When the sensitivity labels feature is turned on, the system will review the contents of your files and emails and will automatically label any files or emails with sensitive data as Sensitive.


Apply your own labels

If you have sensitive data in your files or emails, you can also label them yourself with either the Sensitive or Restricted label.
