Beaconing UI for forms opened in InfoPath

This policy setting controls whether InfoPath users see a security warning when they open an InfoPath form that contains a Web beaconing threat.

If you enable this policy setting, you can choose from three options for controlling when users are prompted about Web beaconing threats in InfoPath:

-Never show beaconing UI. InfoPath does not warn users about potential Web beaconing threats.

-Always show beaconing UI. InfoPath warns users about potential Web beaconing threats, regardless of the location of the form template.

-Show UI if form template is from Internet Zone. InfoPath warns users about potential Web beaconing threats when the form template is located in the Internet security zone in Internet Explorer.

If you disable this policy setting InfoPath does not warn users about potential Web beaconing threats.

If you do not configure this policy setting, InfoPath warns users about potential Web beaconing threats.

Supported on: At least Windows Vista
