    Unbelievable.
    I just spent a week with MS Support due to our auditing showing a significant increase in edits due to all documents being opened in edit mode online. Most edits were accidental / unintentional. To add to the user confusion, documents now open with no header or footer. Supports official response:
    -----
    We can achieve it using the "Protect Document" option.
    1. Open SharePoint document
    2. Click on File > Info
    3. Select "Protect Document".
    Currently, we do not have any option/setting to apply protected view for specific site or to whole tenant.
    ----
    We are now looking at the very painful proposition of migrating back to on-prem servers which do not have this particular “feature”.
    Not sure how or why MS thought this was a good feature. Needs to be remediated ASAP.
