number of devices

5

I’m trying to get a straight answer for the number of devices i’m allowed with a personal office 365 subscription back in 2018 the cap was removed; but now in 2019 it seems like Microsoft is limiting it to just 1 pc 1 mac and 1 phone or tablet. I understand i’m only using 1 at a time. What happened did Micro $oft get greedy now every device needs it own subscription?

    According to the administration page for Office 365 Home, you can install it on up to 5 PCs (Windows or Mac) and 5 mobile devices (iOS / Android).

    Personal is limited to one of each.

    Thanks Iwetzel

    talk to people in MS store, they say personal 365 is only for 1 Pc; so


    For use on multiple PCs/Macs, tablets, and phones (including Windows, iOS, and Android*)

    is a confusing to say the least.

    Basically o365 personal lets you use it yourself. You can install on one PC at a time, and log into the mobile apps on iOS/Android.


    o365 home lets up to 6 people install Office on up to 5 PC's each, and also use the mobile apps.
