  • Teams members will be able to use this feature during the first booting experience on Teams.
  • However, for now, only the pro-licensed users will have access to it.
  • We don’t know if Microsoft plans to expand the feature to all users, but it should probably do it, given how vulnerable to attack Teams is.

It’s not a surprise that Microsoft Teams is prone to all sorts of modern malware. The app is so popular when it comes to hacking, that in 2022, alone, over 40% of Microsoft Teams users were the victims of phishing and cyberattacks.

To somehow reduce this, Microsoft introduced the one-time passcode security feature, to many of its platforms, including Microsoft Teams.

The feature, which sends a unique code to users in order for them to get back their credentials of forgotten passwords, is making its way to Teams Rooms, according to the latest entry in the Microsoft 365 Roadmap.

As Microsoft mentioned, this feature will seamlessly allow managers and users alike to handle the authentication process on Teams Rooms.

How to setup Teams Rooms with one-time passcodes

While Microsoft doesn’t reveal much about the process of setting up the Teams rooms with one-time passcodes, the Redmond-based tech giant says it will happen the first boot experience.

Teams users will be presented with an option to enter the one-time passcode, and automatically get the right credentials to sign into Teams teams one time passcode

However, it does come with a drawback. Only Pro-licensed Teams members will be able to use this feature, and even then, the one-time passcodes must be provisioned on the Teams Rooms Pro Management Portal.

The feature is scheduled to roll out in November, and depending on how it will go, Microsoft might expand it to standard Teams users, as well.

Given the fact that Microsoft Teams is constantly under attack, and users are permanently at risk of being phished, expanding this useful feature to all Teams members would strengthen the overall security of the app.

But who knows? We’ll have to wait and see what Microsoft has in store for us.
