Microsoft Teams calls are getting end-to-end encryption in July:

Microsoft Teams is getting better security and privacy next month with the addition of end-to-end encrypted 1:1 voice calls.

While Microsoft Teams already encrypts data at rest and in transit, it allows administrators to configure automatic recording and transcription of voice calls.

Due to this, Microsoft Teams calls are not suitable for sharing very sensitive information that should remain private between two individuals.

Starting in July, Microsoft Teams is getting end-to-end encryption for 1:1 VoIP calls so that their discussions remain entirely private.

    However bad you think Teams is, how bad it actually is is not equal != to how bad you think it is. It's not as bad as you think.

    Microsoft wants to assure you that Teams -- NOW WITH ENCRYPTION !!! -- will have all of the security that you have come to expect from the Microsoft brand name. So don't worry.

    What can be done to stop bloggers from using the wrong color schemes?

    Ahh, security, MS style. Where the customer is seen as one of the threats. From that, it logically follows that MS is also a potential threat. MS's answer to that one is propaganda, not promises that they won't spy on people, nor accuse them of piracy. Indeed, part of "security" is being "secure" from accusations of piracy, by allowing these big corporations to scan everything, or just plain keep you locked in a walled garden, so that they can know you aren't a dirty rotten pirate.

    Encryption so good that absolutely nobody will be able to decrypt it. Not even the recipient.
