With the Webex integration with GIPHY, users can share PG-rated animated GIFs from the GIPHY library. You can disable this integration to prevent users from using it. Users can continue to copy animated GIFs from other applications and paste these animated GIFs into the Webex apps.

If you subscribe to Webex from your Service Provider, your Provider manages your app settings. Please contact your Provider's support team to have your settings changed.
