Our organization is using the option to set data classifications (Admin portal -> Tenant settings -> Dashboard settings -> Data classification for dashboards) to clearly identify appropriate presentation audiences when dashboards are private to our company, allowed to be shared with our affiliates, or for public forums. The label at the top of the dashboard is an excellent feature and seems to do the trick as a good "You have access, but this isn't appropriate to show in meetings."
The problem is that when looking at workspaces in the "Shared with me", all reports are also labeled with the default classification. Is there a way to change or remove the report classification (since this feature appears to be intended for dashboards only)?

Thank you for the response Cherie (@v-cherch-msft), but I'm afraid this does not address my question. I am not looking for the classification settings of a dashboard. I need to change the classification settings that are applied as a default on reports.

I thought I would share the workaround that I've come up with. Since reports are automatically assigned the default classification, I've unchecked the "Show Tag" option for the default classification, and then relabeled all the dashboards with a second classification tag that is set to display.
It certainly isn't ideal, and doesn't allow for brand new dashboards created by personal users to have an automatic tag explaining what audience the contained data is appropriate for. It requires a "no tag, no sharing" approach to dashboard development, which is easier to forget than seeing a tag marked "PRIV" for company proprietary and private data. If anyone else has a solution to either change tags on reports (or a better way to remove them from reports without removing the default tag on dashboards), please jump in.
