From a security perspective, I'm being asked to clear the Teams cache at logoff.  What is held in the cache? what is the downside to the user?

Hi Simon,
I found this, hope it's enough.

Assuming that the computer's drive is encrypted and/or that you have MAM enabled for computers, the data is therefore encrypted and protected, therefore there should be no issues.

If you don't have encryption in place, then that should be where you start.
That was helpful. Thank you.
Hello Ed,
Bitlocker is enabled. I agree with you, cleaning the cache at logoff seems an unnecessary step.

Many thanks.
