If you use Microsoft Teams and belong to the second category of users, you can now turn off instant read receipts messages.
By default, Microsoft Teams users can turn off reading receipts, but managers they can change it to enable reading proofs. If so, you can not turn them off, but you can avoid it Mission them, to some extent.
Go to "Privacy" and turn off the option "Read receipts". If you have open talks in separate windows, you will need to close and reopen them to apply to these discussions.
How to avoid sending reading receipts
If administrators have "forced" read receipts to be enabled for everyone, then you will not be able to disable this setting. However, reading receipts are only activated when you open a conversation, so as long as you do not open the conversation, a reading receipt will not be sent.
You can change them settings notifications to make sure chat answers are displayed in banner. The banner is the pop-up preview of new messages in the lower right corner of Microsoft Teams. This way, you can read the messages sent to you without activating a read receipt.
To do this, click on your profile picture in the upper right corner of the window and select "Settings".
Open the tab "Notifications" and then click "Processing" next to the selection "Conversation".
Make sure that “@Mentions” is set to “Banner and Feed” and “Replies” is set to “Banner”.
This way, you can see chat messages in pop-ups alerts without activating the reading receipt. You can even reply from the notification preview without activating the reading receipt, although once you reply, it will be obvious that you have read the message anyway.
