European Parliament has banned the use of the new Microsoft Outlook application

Through an unexpected decision, the European Parliament, within the institution and among employees, prohibited the use of the new Microsoft Outlook application.

There have been only a few weeks of reinventing the Microsoft Outlook. This procedure took place shortly after purchasing Acomplia email application by Microsoft. At a closer look, the new Outlook is Acomplia but with its name changed. Although that is a very popular free app on Google Play and Apple AppStore, it seems that it is not the best solution in a government context.

The reason: it does not provide a sufficient level of security; the European Parliament decided to ban the use of Microsoft application internally. For such a decision must be substantiated as not seem subjective, institution officials stated that there are two major problems with the new Outlook. First, it is unacceptable that you can share passwords from your email accounts with Microsoft. Secondly, users should not be storing emails on a third server to which Parliament has no access.

The notice described above was done internally via email with a language quite seriously.

“Please do not install this application, and if you already use it for your EP corporate mail, please uninstall it immediately and change your password.”

This decision of the European Parliament comes few days after the University of Wisconsin announced forbidding the use of the same applications as the students and the teachers for the same reasons.

Apparently, the people at Microsoft are satisfied with the level of security provided by the application, but if they do not respond to the fairly significant complaints described above, they risk losing a significant number of users.
