Hello there,

 

I would like to ask if it is possible to prevent the members of a 365 Group from searching people/contacts of another 365 Group, because I noticed that using the search/command bar at the top of Teams Desktop Client, a user is able to type some characters and it gets people suggestions.

 

If I am not wrong this is related to information barriers?

 

Kind Regards,

Nik

That's correct, you have to take a look at information barriers

@Juan Carlos González MartínThank you for your answer.

 

I read here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/compliance/information-barriers?view=o365-worldwide

that  information barriers are included in subscriptions, such as:

  • Microsoft 365 E5
  • Office 365 E5
  • Office 365 Advanced Compliance
  • Microsoft 365 E5 Information Protection and Compliance

We use the A1 educational plan. But in general I don't see any educational plan included. I guess that this means that we can't use the information barriers?
