Remove company data

You can use Microsoft 365 for business to remove company data that your users have on their devices or Windows PCs that are protected by Microsoft 365. If you remove company data from a device, you cannot restore it later.

  2. On the left nav, choose Devices > Manage.

  3. On the Manage page, choose or search for a user who's data you want to remove, and choose the name.

  4. On the next pane, select the device or devices from the Devices list. On the device pane that opens, you can choose to reset the device to factory settings or remove company data, depending on the device type.

    On the remove company data pane, select the device from which you want to remove the data.

  5. On the confirmation pane, choose Confirm > Close.
