Deleting yourself (as a guest) in another Microsoft Teams organisation (tenant)

Deleting yourself (as a guest) in another Microsoft Teams organisation (tenant)

Everyone uses Microsoft Teams and likes to send invitations to all their contacts.

After a while you will have access to 20 different tenants and you will also receive notifications and documents.

Not always safe or desirable, right? It seems with good that you can clean up after yourself when there are unused entrances. 🙂

There are 2 methods to remove yourself from another tenant.

  • You can ask for your accesses to be removed. The IT-Admin or the team owner will delete you.
  • Or you can remove yourself from guesttenant following this procedure.

Open the organisations you belong to via MyApps

You cannot perform this action from Microsoft Teams -> Browseto

At the top right select -> Organisations -> At the bottom select -> Manage Organisations.


Remove your own access to other Office 365 organisations

Select -> leave organisation.


After you have done this, the tenant you said goodbye to will no longer be in the list at the top right of Microsoft Teams.


Deleting a Guest (from Microsoft Teams) in Azure Active Directory (Azure AD)

If you can no longer log in as a guest because the following things have changed, it often helps to delete the guest account from Azure AD. This account will then be automatically removed from Microsoft Teams . After the removal you can add the guest again to Microsoft Teams.

  • The UserPrincipalname (logon name) has changed: If the UPN (source) has changed, the relationship between the division of tenant to where you want to connect is broken. (target)
  • Security enhancements such as multi-factor authentication. Sometimes authentication fails after enforcing new policies or policies. One solution is to grant new guest access, i.e. remove the guest account from Azure AD.

These adjustments can only be made by an IT Administrator with Global Administrator rights in the Office 365 Tenant. Navigate to: Azure AD, press Users, select the desired guest user.

Press: Delete user.


Delete your profile from Microsoft Edge

After deleting your account, your profile may still be visible in Microsoft Edge.


Press on top of that: Manage profile settings and delete your profile.

Hi, I have deleted myself as a guest of an organisation from Teams. However, the account '[my name] (guest)' remains visible when I click on the picture of my account in the top right corner. How can I remove it?
