I got a requirement from one of our customers is that they want to prevent a user from accessing all the SharePoint online site collections inside their office 365 tenant, while keep the user account active.

So I am not sure if SharePoint online support such an operation?

Keeping in mind that we have many sites which were granted permission to the users through the "Everyone except external", so this user is granted access to some site indirectly through this group.


SharePoint online don't support such an operation.

similar issue post for your reference:


  • is the link saying that removing the user's SharePoint online license will prevent the user from accessing the SharePoint sites? – John John May 14 '20 at 12:38
