Privacy

When a meeting recording starts, Teams shows a notification to all participants on the Teams desktop, web, and mobile apps, as well as to people who joined via phone.

In some places, you legally need to get everyone's permission before you can record them. Make sure you know the rules before you start.

For more information, see the Microsoft Privacy Statement.
