Copilot, formerly Bing Chat Enterprise gives Texas A&M employees access to AI-powered chat with data protection. Employees can use Copilot to get work done faster, be more creative, or support customers.  

Getting Started

Access Copilot at bing.com/chat and log in with your NetID and password. You will know your data is protected once you log in and see the green “protected” badge. You should also see a message confirming 'Your personal and company data are protected in this chat' above the chat input box and on top of every chat answer.

Microsoft Edge is the preferred Internet browser for Copilot. While Copilot may function on other browsers, using Microsoft Edge enables the full range of Microsoft's AI-related features.

Copilot does not use any Texas A&M data or queries to train any of their models. The queries are all encrypted in transit and are not stored by Microsoft. However, you should always check any AI tool’s output for accuracy. Since these tools have been known to produce inaccurate content, verify any factual information generated by an AI tool, and make sure to reference the tool as you would any other source.

The commercial Copilot should not be used with confidential or sensitive university data because the data may be used to train the AI. There is also the potential to leak sensitive information when that data is fed back into the AI platform.

There are many other widely available AI and ML tools on the market that should also be used with caution. Confidential or sensitive university data should only be used with approved university cloud resources and approved university storage. If you have questions about potential use of an AI/ML platform, please contact security@tamu.edu.


Copilot can help employees quickly generate content, analyze or compare data, summarize documents, learn new skills, write code and much more. There are six prompt suggestions you can use: write, compare, analyze, learn, laugh and code.

For example, Copilot can help you:

  • Understand the implications of a decision: 'What are the pros and cons of offline marketing strategies?' or 'How can I measure the success of my offline marketing campaign?'
  • Learn new skills: 'What are the top five things I should know when managing a large project?' and 'What is agile project management and how does it differ from waterfall?'
  • Analyze data: 'If we're forecasting 7% EPS growth this coming quarter, how does our internal forecast compare with EPS growth in the top US public CPG companies?'
  • Summarize a work PDFs open in Edge: 'Recap the findings of this internal cybersecurity report and the top three concerns' or 'What are best practices for addressing these kinds of security issues?'
