Microsoft Defender For M365 Safe-Link Policy


Microsoft Safe-Link is a feature for Office 365 that provides URL checking and rewriting of inbound email messages in mail-flow. It also offers time-of-click verification of URLs and links in mail messages and other locations. Safe link scanning can help to protect your organization from malicious links used in phishing, and other attacks.

In this article, I have explained Microsoft 365 safe link creation using the Microsoft Defender feature.
