When I am trying to REMOVE user image from MS Teams, it is replacing the user image with the FirstName & LastName Initials image and I am getting the same image from MS Graph endpoint.

 

Question:

1. Is there any way to set default user placeholder image instead of Initials?

2. Is there any MS Teams administrator setting that can not set the initials as a default user profile image.

Hi,
This is the only options you have, initials or picture. So if there is no picture uploaded the initials will show.

1. No.
2. No
