Details:

Today's release of Idle session timeout will allow IT admins to configure a tenant-wide timeout policy to automatically sign out users after a period of inactivity on Microsoft 365 web apps. This will help protect sensitive company data from unauthorized access while providing peace of mind for end users while working on unmanaged and/or shared devices. This feature is an improvement over, and will eventually replace, current app-specific idle timeout settings in Outlook Web App (OWA) and SharePoint Online (SPO).
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 55183.
[When this will happen:]
Preview: Began rolling out today and is expected to be complete in late March.
Standard: We will begin rolling this out in late June and expect to complete rollout late August.
