Custom Visualization Data Security Issues



In the description of every Custom visualization that is on the, it says that the visualization can send data through the Internet.


What data is being sent? Isn't it a severe breach of data confidentiality? 

If I make reports and dashboards inside my Organization, doesn't it leaks?


I would appreciate your answers,

Certified custom visuals and custom visuals developed by Microsoft don’t send any data over internet. Such custom visuals can be used for sensitive data.

However, we can’t be sure about other third party not-certified custom visuals.

Some custom Visuals might send data to third-party services for additional analytics.

We'd recommned to contact developers of custom visuals to ask what data their CVs send.


We'd also recommend to use certified CV. Tag certified means that we have not find any security issues and sending data to 3rd party services.
