Hide user presence from external contacts
External contacts are able to see your availability in real time which has various implications for security, business operations and relationships. Please include a global option to prevent external contacts from seeing internal user presence.
I found this article, haven't tried yet. http://terenceluk.blogspot.com/2020/05/enabling-privacy-mode-for-microsoft.html

Agreed with other comments that this should be something that can be suppressed to external contacts.
This could be seen as quite a serious privacy issue for many business. A much needed feature.
Teams is a great tool, and having external users be able to share in the experience is great, but Admins and/or local must be able to limit that access - including presence status. Thank you.
Please include a local setting for users to decide if they want to share it with external contacts or not.
