At a Glance

  • MS365 E5 Renew Plus app (see chapter Setting Up)

Intro

If you are a developer, or a student, you may want to develop something using online services. It may be your school project, your business or your personal tools. And sometimes, we may need an online storage, analysis your data or just see the leading edge technology. A Microsoft 365 E5 account may fit your requirements (for more details, visit https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/dev-program).

As it is a free license, it comes with some restrictions. One of those is your license will only valid for 90 days. After that, you account will be deleted if you are not a active developer (also, we do not know the definition of ACTIVE DEVELOPER). In some cases, like you are making a media storage or streaming service, you need to keep the files always available. Once the account expires, it will cause a big trouble. Today I want to share with you is the MS365 E5 Renew Plus app, which can act like an active developer, to increase the probability of renewing your developer license.
