Make the user specific data anonymous
To make the data in Teams user activity report anonymous, you have to be a global administrator. The global administrator can hide identifiable information (using MD5 hashes) such as display name, group name, email, and AAD ID in the report and its export.
In Microsoft 365 admin center, go to the Settings > Org Settings, and under Services tab, choose Reports.
Select Reports, and then choose Display concealed user, group, and site names in all reports. This setting gets applied both to the usage reports in Microsoft 365 admin center as well as Teams admin center.
Select Save changes.
Enabling this setting will de-identify user, group and site name information in the Teams user activity report, Teams device usage report, and Teams usage report. Starting September 1, 2021, this setting is enabled by default for everyone as part of our ongoing commitment to help protect important information and enable companies to support their local privacy laws.
This setting also applies to Microsoft 365 usage reports in Microsoft 365 admin center, Microsoft Graph, and Power BI.
