How to tell which Office 365 plan (Personal, Home, University etc.) you’ve bought and the expiry date. Or maybe you’re sharing an Office 365 Home plan.
The Office 365 plan, status and expiry doesn’t appear in the Office software (that would be too easy).
Instead, go to https://office.com and login with your Microsoft account linked to your Office 365 account. Choose ‘My Account’.
After login go to Account | Subscriptions and Services
Or use the link https://account.microsoft.com/services (unless Microsoft changes the url, yet again).
Purchased Office 365
If you bought Office 365 Home, Personal or University, it will appear with the name of the plan and expiry date.
Sharing Office 365 Home
For Office 365 Home the ‘Sharing’ link tells you who has any of the five available shares of the Home plan. That’s also where you can add a new person to the plan or cancel someone’s access to your plan.
If you’re sharing an Office 365 Home plan purchased by someone else, still go to Services & Subscriptions https://account.microsoft.com/services but the page will show that your access is ‘Shared and managed by …’ the owner of the plan.
