Google has announced a new update for Google Workspaces that aims to protect Google Chat data sharing between users’ professional and personal accounts on iOS.
Earlier this year the search giant announced a new admin setting that restricts data and content sharing between workspace accounts and personal Google accounts in Gmail, Drive, Docs, Sheets and Slides on iOS. Now however, the company is expanding this admin setting to include Google Chat.

With Data Protection on, users can only share or save content such as files, emails, chat messages or copy and pasted content to Google Workspace accounts. It protects users from accidentally or intentionally sharing chat messages with their personal Google accounts or saving data in their personal account.
Google Chat Data Protection
Since Google’s applications on iOS support multi-user logins that allow users to access Gmail, Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Chats and Slides with their personal and workspace accounts, keeping these accounts separate is a matter of security. point of view is extremely important.
By giving administrators the ability to control how data is shared across user accounts, organizations can help reduce accidental data sharing.
Along with Google’s copy and paste and drag and drop restrictions and its protection against data sharing between Google Workspace and individual Google accounts, these measures expand data protection coverage and help increase the security of corporate data on iOS.
While administrators can visit the Help Center to learn more about controlling whether users can copy work data to individual apps on iOS devices, end users can access enterprise Google Chat content by their organization to enable the feature. After that you will be able to share securely.
