Is there a way to prevent mobile users from registering personal accounts alongside their corporate account in the teams app?  We use Android Work Profiles to keep company related user data separate from personal data on mobile devices, but we have noticed that if a person installs both teams accounts on the version of the teams app in a user's work profile, there is nothing preventing a user from downloading files from teams via their work account (to the Android Work Profile), and forwarding them off to a non corporate user by opening the second account from within the teams app.  

 

On IOS, the issue seems to be made worse by the lack of a separate work profile, so there isn't any segmentation between a user's personal and work related data on their device.  

 

Is there any way to change this behavior and restrict the Teams mobile apps so they only permit a single account logged on at once?

Apart from Android Profiles: Do you have a MDM or MAM in place? The scenario described is one that a MDM / MAM solution such as Intune should solve
