Disabling copy and pasting in PowerApps

Hi there, I am attempting to build a canvas app which contains confidential information that will be visible to users of the app. However, I want copy and pasting to be disabled so that users can't copy and paste the confidential information to a place outside the app (to prevent data leaks). I tried researching solutions to this but couldn't find anything on this. Thanks in advance.

Hi @Xpholio ,

Power Apps has no function to turn this off at App level and this is a built-in browser function anyway (unless this was globally disabled somehow on the PC). Also, you would have to disable Print Screen and remove any screen-grabbing tools and their smart phones to stop them taking a photo.

So no, if they can see it, there will be a way of copying it.
