Start using Microsoft Intune


Updated: January 27, 2016

Start with a free trial

Use the Start with a 30-day trial guidance to get your trial version of Intune set up quickly. The free trial allows you to test up to 100 user licenses and comes with free support.

If you sign up for a new account, you cannot use an existing work or school account later to manage that account, or combine it with existing volume licensing agreements.

So, sign up for a new account if:

  • Your organization doesn’t already have an Enterprise Agreement, a Microsoft volume licensing agreement, or an Office 365 subscription.


  • You will discard your free trial after evaluating Intune. This is recommended if you plan to use Intune with System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.

Start with your paid subscription

If you have a work or school account with an Enterprise Agreement or equivalent volume licensing agreement or Office 365 subscription, sign in with your work or school account and use the Start with a paid subscription guidance to quickly set up a small deployment so you can begin testing out device management scenarios.

If you are setting up Intune on an existing account, we recommend that you review introduction to Intune.
