Hidden Site Collections in SharePoint Online

Recently I was given a task to find site collections that were not visible in admin center but actually users were using them, and the it manager didn't have access on them.

I found two scenarios where this situation is possible. So here is my analysis on them:

  • Scenario I - ContentTypeHub
SharePoint online has a hidden site collection named "contenttypehub" (URL - /teams/contentTypeHub). You can host your content types here. They will be available in all the site collections. 
  • Scenario II- SharePoint Group Sites
If you have created Office365 groups, you will have a separate site collection of each group created where group members can share & collaborate.
