Stop Teams from syncing personal contacts.

Brass Contributor



Please i need your help on this issue.


We are currently deploying Teams phones to about 150 users. Several users have noticed their personal contacts from their personal devices have been synced to Teams.


  1. They want their personal contacts removed.
  2. Is there a way to set policy to stop this sync from happening?
  3. How can we remove the already synced contacts in batch?

@MikeJohn1710  How are you deploying Teams? Are you using Intune? A third party tool? A GPO?


We don't require our users to have Teams on their mobile devices.

With mobile Teams installs we had to point out to users to NOT sync their local contacts.


Users should be able to go into settings on Teams mobile and disable syncing local contacts.
