Hello Teams Community,

 

Please i need your help on this. 

 

I have a user who want to block .exe files sharing in teams for all their whole organization. 

 

Does anyone know how to go about this?

By design file related data on Teams saved on SharePointOnline and ODfB. So on sharepoint you have an option to block by file type. - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/block-file-types

How to access - https://<tenantname>-admin.sharepoint.com and go to settings > OneDrive Sync (last). On sync settings you will be able to find file types. and this control both SPO and ODfB.
Thank you for your reply.

I understand you can block file sharing on SharePoint. How about on the Teams Admin Centre can someone block file sharing.
This is blocking sync of certain file types not blocking Sharing. To my knowledge there isn't a setting to choose a file type for Sharing Policy.
