Remove “Recommended” section from home screen

Recently I noticed a section in the Power BI Home Screen called RECOMMENDED, that shows what others in my organization have opened. This seems like a privacy violation to me. How do I turn this off?

Hello All,
Please Suggest me if there is an any option to hide 'Recommended' section from Power BI Service.

Did anything ever come of this?

No, nothing. Don't know whether anybody at MS read it at all...

We should customize the Power BI home page in our organization. Specifically, to either remove the Recommended section or at least select the content displayed in that section. And it should be mandatory for all users within our organization.


Currently, every user can view which reports were opened by others. It raises a significant privacy concern in our German cultural environment, which is heightened by the fact that this information is prominently displayed on the landing page.

Hi, @AnonymousPerson 


By default, anyone with the Admin, Member, or Contributor role in a workspace in your organization can feature content on Power BI Home.


This setting enables you enable/disable the ability of users in your organization to promote their published content to the Featured section of the Power BI Home page.



You can try to disable this feature here.

Hello @v-zhangti 


Could we get a solution for this, or at least an outlook when it will happen?

Hello again

It is NOT the "featured" section that needs to be hidden.

Please add an option to hide the "Recommended" section!!!

Thanks Christian

Dear Charlotte


From my understanding, it is not the "Featured" section, which needs to be hidden.


E.g. the german council in bigger companies doesn't like sections like the "Recommended" section. This shows everyone in the company what others are working on (or not 😉 ).


So, the suggested solution is not solving this issue. Please offer a possibility to hide the "Recommended" section.

I can definitely relate with the German comment. It's not a popular feature at all.

I talk to myself all the time. But I still can't find it in the tenant settings.

Did you get a helpful answer?

We have a pro ticket open on this since nearly a year. So far no traction. In fact it got worse, with more unwanted digests popping up.

Did you find it, by any chance? I'd need to explain it to whoever is the tenant admin in my company...

Laughed at the way you replied before - funny!

Talk to your Tenant Admin - they need to disable that.

The Tenant Admin can't disable the "recommended" section...
