Removing the MIP Account

The steps outlined below detail how to deprovision a Microsoft Information Protection account.

  1. Choose Administration > Service Account.
  2. Select the Microsoft Information Protection account and click Remove.
  3. On the Remove Microsoft Information Protection screen that appears, click OK.
    Note:

    Microsoft Information Protection can be deprovisioned only if you have not specified the Apply sensitivity label or Remove sensitivity label action in any Data Loss Prevention policy of your organization.

    To quickly find out whether the Apply sensitivity label or Remove sensitivity label action is specified in a Data Loss Prevention policy, check whether the policy has a "Microsoft Information Protection enabled" mark on it.
