What are the recommended settings for a room in teams, we are testing out a conference room with a Logitech meetup camera. We have turned the room email account into a device account and have the computer in that room logged in as this room account. The question is how do we not have other people who use this space see previous meets in the room chat, shared files, etc.?

Thanks for the question.  Since you're asking about previous meetings, chats and files, it sounds like you aren't actually using a Microsoft Teams Room, but instead are just using a PC signed in to an account for the room, and using a Meetup camera bar.  That is definitely not a recommended approach for configuring a room, for exactly the reasons you are concerned about.  There is no good way to secure the meeting content when done this way.  

 

Instead of a PC, you should use a Microsoft Teams Room.  These are purpose built meeting appliances designed to host audio/video meetings with collaboration and sharing features, but do not have chat or file sharing access, nor can you join any previous meeting that took place in that room.  

 

I'd suggest starting here to learn more about the platform:
