Microsoft Teams is updating labels for meeting participants to increase security. The term "Unverified" will be used for participants who do not have a trusted relationship with the organizer, while "External" will be used for those who are not part of the organizer's organization but have a trusted relationship. All areas within Team meetings will consistently show accurate user labels. The update will roll out mid-February 2024 and will affect organizers and meeting participants who attend meetings with users outside of their organization. No action is required to prepare for this change, but meeting organizers should be informed.
Updated March 20, 2024: We have completed the rollout for Worldwide. We will not be rolling out to GCC, GCC High or DoD organizations at this time and will communicate via Message center when we are ready to proceed. We apologize for any inconvenience.
In our continuous drive to increase the security of Microsoft Teams meetings, we are updating the labels for the participants' names. To bring in consistency and accuracy to the user labels, we are introducing the term Unverified, which will be seen for all meeting participants who do not have a trusted relationship with the organizer. All participants who are not part of the organizer's organization but are configured as a trusted relationship with the organizer will continue to be termed as External.
Additionally, we are ensuring that all areas within Team meetings - lobby, participant roster, meeting chat, and so on - will consistently show accurate user labels.
[When this will happen:]
Worldwide: We will begin rolling out mid-February 2024 and expect to complete by early March 2024 for all the in-meeting participant views. Other areas within Teams meetings will soon follow with these updates. This will be announced in a future post.
