Microsoft Defender for Endpoint 2 licences

Brass Contributor

Hi there,

I am confused on how these licences work. May I know if they are applied per user or per device? According to MS doc, "eligible Licensed Users may use Microsoft Defender for Endpoint on up to five concurrent devices" > Microsoft Defender for Endpoint on other platforms | Microsoft Learn

However in a test Tenant I can see the following: 


We never assigned any license to a user directly.

Anyone can provide guidance?

Thank you

Defender for Endpoint is licensed on a per-user basis, but as you pointed out, each user can use up to 5 devices and get protection on those five devices.
FYI: I cannot view the image that you attempted to upload from your test tenant, can you try again?
