I’m trying to gauge what other institutions are doing regarding clickable links in instant messaging programs.  We currently block links that are sent through our Microsoft Lync implementation but we’d like to determine what other peer institutions are doing.

 

Does your university block clickable links through technical means? Do you allow clickable links but display a pop-up or warning message?  Or do you deal with this issue strictly from an awareness perspective?

 

Thanks for any information you can share!
