- You can select which services to apply the file extension block.
- You can specify the types of extensions to block.
After saving, it may take up to 1 hour to apply in the services.
Select services to block
File extensions specified as ‘Extensions to block’ from the selected services will not be shared.
Emails sent from IPs allowed in the inbox of the IP management are received even if a blocked file is attached.
|Calendar (Team/Group Event)||
|Drive (Team/Group Folder)||
When connecting services, such as attaching a file from Drive to other services or saving files to Drive, the file will be blocked if one of the services has a restriction.
Manage file extensions to block
- To prevent the inflow and spread of malicious codes or viruses, the recommended extensions to block are set as defaults.
- You can remove extensions set as default by choice.
- Also, you can add up to 200 file extensions to block according to your company policy.
For batch files, executable files, and libraries, extensions and contents are checked together. This strengthens security as it can block the files according to the content despite having different extensions.
- DOS batch file : .bat, .cmd
- (Windows 32/64bit) PE file : .exe, .scr
- (Windows 32/64bit) PE library : .cpl, .dll, .ocx
Other extensions are blocked based on the extension entered in the file name.

|Chatrooms with external LINE WORKS users||If on, members cannot share files in message rooms with LINE WORKS users from other companies.
