Data protection rules for Chat help admins and security experts build a stronger framework around sensitive data to prevent personal or proprietary information from ending up in the wrong hands. These leaks, whether accidental or malicious, are a top concern for our customers. 

Admins can selectively apply data protection rules to: 

  • Messages in group conversations, spaces, and/or direct messages

  • Messages between internal and/or external participants 

  • Message text and/or attachments 

Once DLP rules are applied, messages and files in relevant conversations will automatically be scanned for sensitive information. Admins can configure the action to be taken in response to sensitive data being detected, such as: block from sending, warn before sending, and log for audit.

Availability: Available to others but to Google Workspace Essentials, Business Starter, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Frontline, and Nonprofits, as well as legacy G Suite Basic and Business customers. 

Rapid Release and Scheduled Release: Gradual rollout (up to 15 days for feature visibility) starting on October 11, 2022
