How to disable Giphy in Teams after Facebook acquisition

Hi All,

if you have any concern on Giphy use in Microsoft Teams after the news of Facebook’s Giphy acquisition, maybe you want to disable it (I’ve already done that), let’s see how:

  1. Open Teams Admin Center at
  2. Go to Messaging policies and select Global (Org-wide default) then Edit

3. Set to Off “Use Giphys in conversations” (a strange Facebook Thumbs Up icon may appear!) 😉

4. Go to Org-wide settings -> Guest access -> Use Giphys in conversations and disable it

That’s all
Enjoy a Teams environment without Giphys
Best. Luca
