Contact us

At Infuse, we’re passionate about cyber-security and making sure your business is protected from cyber criminals. One of the many ways to protect yourself from hackers online is to use an end-to-end encryption.

End-to-end encryption, or E2EE, is a secure method of communication where third parties are unable to access any data whilst it’s being transferred. It’s a valuable component in making sure no one else has access to your information apart from the intended person(s).

To enable end-to-end encryption on one-to-one Microsoft Teams calls, you need to use the Teams admin centre.

  1. Sign into the Teams admin centre, if you don’t have access to this, you will need to contact your IT administrator.
  2. Click on Other settings and then Enhanced encryption policies.
  3. Name the new policy, then for End-to-end call encryption, choose users can turn it on.
  4. Next press Save.
  5. Once you’ve finished creating the policy, assign the policy to users, groups, or your entire tenant the same way you manage other Teams policies.

Once the IT admin has set the enhanced encryption policy, users need to turn it on. To do this, you need to:

  1. At the top of your screen click the ellipses (…).
  2. Press Settings and then Privacy.
  3. Toggle the switch on End-to-end encrypted calls to turn it on.
