Admins beware! Microsoft gives heads-up for 'disruptive' changes to authentication in Office 365 email service

Re: Hmmmm....

one bonus(depending on your point of view) to using the outlook app over native, is likely the phone can not be remote wiped by the admins. I didn't have a fear of admins at my org doing that to me but it was more of a fear of a software bug or something tripping that could cause it.

I used office365 mail/calendar on Android native(4.4) up until about July of last year. Newer phone newer Android and using Outlook app since. It's not as nice not being able to use the native calendar app to view things(extra clicks to get to the calendar), but the trade off of having a much lower privileged app vs all the insane permissions the built in stuff got I guess is worth the trade off for me personally. I mean it's one of the least annoying things about using the newer Android system.
