Microsoft Official Response to Custom Visual Security

I want to use custom visuals, however seeing the error "Caution: A custom visual could contain code with security or privacy risks" makes this an absolute no-go. I can't afford the potential risk that data could be leaked and I don't have an IT department to scan these visuals for security concerns.

 

Has Microsoft every posted an official response acknowledging that custom visuals on app.powerbi.com/visuals are certified as secure? I dont plan to download any custom visuals from any alternate sources, just that portal.

(I posted this note in response to an older ticket in the forums from back in 2015. I found that as the closest ticket in the forums resembling my request. Given that ticket is marked as "solved" it looks like that post isn't getting circulation, so I thought I'd try reposting the question here.)

Hi @PatrickNealis,

 

In addition, you can refer to this article to Review custom visuals for security and privacy. If you are not sure whether ot's secure to use a specific custom visual send a email to Power BI Custom Visuals Support (pbicvsupport@microsoft.com) to confirm it.
