Are my conversations and chats encrypted in any way?

Hi @Thomas_Steibl

See article

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/security-compliance-overview

All data in Teams in encrypted in transit and at rest

@Christopher Hoardthanks. I know this document but there is nowhere stated how the actual messages are encrypted. If they are end to end encrypted and using which protocol...

No worries. I get what you mean it is a bit vague. I have raised this with the product team and will get back to you as soon as I hear from them with an authoritative response.

Any updates regarding this matter @Christopher Hoard ?

None currently. It's a bit of a mad time given MVP Summit and the growth in usage of Teams causing some scalability related issues. It may take some time for them to get back to me.

Is the video chat encrypted?
