If we run a Teams video call and a participant locks their machine, the video and audio continues to work from that machine?
 
Is this expected behaviour?
 
I would assume that most users will assume that locking the machine disables an in-flight video call but it appears this is not the case. 
 
Anyone know if this behaviour can be disabled/changed??

Hi @Aaron Smith

That is expected behaviour: fire up a meet now in a channel and lock your machine. If you have a built in camera on a device like a Surface Laptop the camera light will still be on. Audio is still on too.

There is a uservoice for exactly this here

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/37235770-turn-off-video-when-t...

Would recommend voting up on it. I have voted on it too some time ago. It's really kind of essential moving forward and if you vote you'll get notified if it gets picked up. Until that time users will need to be vigilant and always ensure video and audio are off before locking the machine if they need to move away from it

Hope that answers your question

Best, Chris
