Block access to files on mobile devices trough Teams

EmmaJ 20 Reputation points

I want to block access to files from the Teams app on mobile phones (iOS). I still want it to be possible to access chat and calls via Teams, but not to view files (by clicking the "Team" or "File" in the Teams app). All phones are managed in my organisation. I noticed there is a possibility to block access to Sharepoint from unmanaged devices, but that won't work in my case.

    Based on the context provided, it's not possible to specifically block access to files in the Teams app on mobile devices while still allowing access to chat and calls. The Teams app doesn't provide granular control over individual features like file access, chat, or calls.
