Following up on the previous update, if a workload (such as Planner) is enabled for Outlook by default, we don’t plan on hiding those groups from the GAL. The only other scenario currently under consideration where we would hide groups by default is “Secret Groups”. “Secret Groups” would be hidden from everywhere unless you are a member. “Secret groups” is on the Microsoft 365 Groups backlog, but there is no delivery date available at this time.

Microsoft, this is a very reasonable ask, we should be able to prevent private groups from showing up in the address book by default. Using a script after the fact is not a viable solution as the group still could still make it's way to the address book before a scheduled script is run.Chris Adams supported this idea ·
