Disable User sign-in

If you need to disable access to an account, one method is to block the account from signing in. To do this:

  1. Sign in to https://admin.microsoft.com using an Admin account.

  2. Select Users > Active Users. Select the employee that you want to block

  3. Click Edit next to Sign-in Status > then choose Block the user from signing in > Click Save

If you block a user from having sign-in access to Office 365, it might take as long as 24 hours to take effect on all that user’s devices and clients.
