A few things to keep in mind
When you share your subscription, the people you share with can use any of your available installs—they aren’t limited to just one install. If you want them to use only one or two installs, let them know.
If someone you share with uses more Office installs than you want them to, don’t worry, you’re still in control. You can deactivate installs to make more available. Deactivating an install doesn’t remove someone from your subscription. They’ll get to keep their extra OneDrive storage and can still use your Office installs if they become available.
If you want to remove someone from your subscription, you can. When you remove someone they’ll lose all your subscription benefits, like extra OneDrive storage and the ability to use your Office installs.
