Signing up for an Office 365 account
When you sign up for a Backupify Office 365 account, you should authenticate with OAuth from a system administrator account that has privileges for all users, services, and sites that you want to back up.
You must be an administrator on the customer’s Office 365 suite or have administrator credentials for this setup process.
Does Backupify store my Office 365 password?
No. Backupify uses OAuth2. The Office 365 Admin grants the application access to their data through Microsoft when they authorize scopes on the service-side.
