@Ramki-5805,

No, administrators can restrict their users from signing-in to Teams using a personal account using policies. Teams apps on Windows and MacOS are gaining support for device policies that can restrict sign in to users from the organization. The policies can be set via Device Management solutions such as MDM (Mobile Device Management) or GPO (Group Policy Object).

When this policy is configured on a device, users can only sign in with accounts homed in an Azure AD tenant that is included in the "Tenant Allow List" defined in the policy. The policy applies to all sign-ins, including first and additional accounts. If an organization spans multiple Azure AD tenants, the administrator can include multiple Tenant IDs in the Allow List.

Links to add another account may continue to be visible in the Teams app, but they won't be operable.

For full details, administrators should refer to the article: How to restrict sign-in on desktop devices.

This capability works with any Mobile Device Management (MDM) provider that uses the Managed App Configuration channel for iOS or the Android Enterprise channel for Android.
