I am in Office 365, and I can see that the number of active users in Office 365 is 5, there's no deleted users, nothing. When I go to SharePoint administration, I can see in user profiles that the number of profiles is 10, how can that be?


If you look at the list of accounts: Admin Center | SharePoint | User Profiles | Manage User Profiles you will see that there are additional System Accounts like those for support that also have access and create profiles.

  • thank you Matthew, how can I see these. I typed in the search box: system, and it didn't get anyone. – Asif pava Dec 17 '15 at 22:17

    Try Searching for "I" or "support". – Matthew McDermott Dec 18 '15 at 13:27
