Is there not a way to turn off Contacts for an OU? Setting up some external people with Cloud Identity Free licenses and it grants them access to all our company contacts

would turning off gmail also turn off access to contacts.google.com?

They don’t have a google workspace license

Actually you might just be able to change the visibility settings for an OU here - https://admin.google.com/ac/settings/directory/visibility

Yep that does the trick 😄 Wish I could hide it altogether

It removes the “Directory” option altogether

Yeah, contacts kind of feels like it should be it’s own app

The banners are also kind of obnoxious 😆

Yeah, totally. I think it would totally make sense to have that in the “core apps” so that you could fully disable it if you wanted to

And I'd love an iOS app while we're at it

@robsaskibum dominik didn't really get it wrong "1,000,000,000,000 - This is the historical meaning in English and the current use in many non-English-speaking countries where billion and trillion 1018 (ten to the eighteenth power) maintain their long scale definitions."
