Are Microsoft Teams Public or Private?

Question

Are Microsoft Teams set as public or private?

Answer

As a default, all Microsoft Teams are set as private upon creation. 

Users are added to private team by the Team Owner. When creating a team, the administrator can choose to make the team discoverable so that it is searchable in the Teams Gallery, or they can turn discoverability off so that users can only find the team if it is directly shared with them. 

Public teams are visible to everyone from the Teams Gallery and can be joined without the approval of the Team Owner.
