  1. Hi Johnny Netsec,

    I followed all the Steps mentioned in your video and was able to Renew my Microsoft 365 Developer Subscription today! Thank you for your advices and I must say that all are true and worked perfectly. Below are all the steps that I followed to Renew my Subscription;

    1) All the 4 steps given in the YouTube Video
    2) OneDrive Indexer through Heroku
    3) Applying for MS365 Renewal Program through following Link –
    4) Linking my GitHub Account to Microsoft Developer Program (Though I didn’t do any development in my GitHub Account other than a few Forks)
    5) Linking a Domain to my Microsoft 365 Developer Account

    That’s pretty much it! And of course I used the Office Package (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) as well. Today I got the email from Microsoft saying that my Subscription has been renewed Successfully! For Proof see the image below –!AvLfxMi2_gY7b7StfH3RdwdYE40?e=usjBUa
