What this means – Allow guest access in Teams :

  • When we will turn off this setting Microsoft Teams will block the existing guests from accessing teams
  • No new guests will be added to the Teams
  • Please note existing guests will not be removed from the Teams
  • We can configure this setting from Microsoft Teams Admin Center as well, but we will have seperate articles on those

Few more details:

  • Until Feb 2021 guest access was turned off by default. After that “Guess Access” is turned on by default
  • This setting will be enabled by default even though organization dont want to enable “Guest Access”. We need to explicitly disable if we dont want to give guests to Teams
