Office 365 - Default sharing/Owner permissions

Hi Guys,

I am an Office 365 global admin. When users create documents (e.g word) and save to OneDrive, my account or any other global admin's account  is listed as owner by default. Due to the sensitive nature of some documents, its a concern. How do i configure security to stop this default ownership so that only the user that creates the document owns and controls who they want to share it with? Something similar to having list folder rights to see the file names but have no read access?

Your account has been granted access to the user's ODFB (added as Site collection administrator), thus you are being listed as an owner. The only way to remove this is to remove the permissions.
