How to Share an Office 365 Home Subscription

Learn how to share your Office 365 Home subscription plan with up to 5 other people. Office 365 includes such popular programs like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, 1 TB OneDrive storage per user, and 60 minutes per month Skype calling. If you share with 6 people total, the price per month works out to around $1.40, which is pretty tremendous value.

To share your subscription with others, you’ll need to log in to with your Microsoft account. Once you sign in, click on “Services & subscriptions”, then click on “Sharing”, then click on “Start sharing”. You can then either “Invite via email” or Invite via a link” to share your subscription with others.

  • Question for you: I have an Office/Microsoft 365 Subscription. I use One Drive heavily. My wife wants her own OneDrive because she is weird. How can I add a separate OneDrive for her? Thank you in advance‼️‼️‼️

  • For a family of 4, one has a MAC and 2 of us share a computer. I assume the 2 people using a 'shared' machine each still has 1TB, when they login separately? And the MAC user can enjoy all the features?

  • Just a correction, Office Home & Student 2019 is a perpetual license, meaning that it will be a one time payment and you will own the license

  • Can anyone share their unused quota of family subscription with me, please? I can't afford a full license.

    IT will be of great help.

  • Kevin- I have 18 computers working concurrently. Now, instead of buying 3 home versions, can I use the same email I'd on 3 pcs each or 5 pcs each and have office 365 home installed in each of them? That way within 6 users I can have access on 18-30 of my computers??? Pls let me know. ?

  • Hi Kevin, I have 2 questions
    Does the person with whom you're sharing with, needs to have a Microsoft account?

    I have shared my account with someone by sending them an invite via email, they have received the invite in their email whoever after downloading and installing they were asked for the activation key. Do I have to provide them with this?

  • My wife shared her account with me. I got the email, clicked the link and it asked me to log in. What do I use for login? So far it’s just treating like a customer who needs to buy it.

  • According to the following article not only can you connect your personal domain to an O365 Home account, you can also allow each user you share it with to have a personalized alias from your personal domain. Is this true? Support was a bit fuzzy on it and thought you had to have a separate O365 Home account for each user that wanted a personal e-mail alias from your personally owned domain.

    I'm scrambling to get my families e-mail out of Outlook Premium onto something else as Microsoft decided to cancel my Premium account without notice. Support referred me to an article which address the fact that "Personalized email addresses in Premium are being retired". However, they never send me a notice, they just cancelled my subscription a month early!

  • Are there any risks sharing your subscription with people you don't know? like friends of friends or random people, can they access your files somehow?

  • What happens to any documents/files you created in Office 365 if you terminate your subscription? Do you still have access to those documents? Or do you have to download those documents and store them on your hard drive before cancelling your Office 365 subscription?
