I need to count quantity of days in every month to every
ID
.

If I try
df.groupby('ID')['used_at'].count()
I get quantity of visiting, how can I take and count
days
at
month
?

Answer

I think you need groupby by ID, month and day and aggregate size:

df1 = df.used_at.groupby([df['ID'], df.used_at.dt.month,df.used_at.dt.day ]).size()

print (df1)
ID                                used_at  used_at
574c4969b017ae6481db9a7c77328bc3  5        1          1
                                  6        1          1
                                  7        1          1
                                  8        1          1
                                           2          1
                                           3          1
                                           4          1
e990fae0f48b7daf52619b5ccbec61bc  5        1          2
                                           2          1
                                  6        1          3
dtype: int64

Or by date - it is same as by year, month and day:

df1 = df.used_at.groupby([df['ID'], df.used_at.dt.date]).size()

print (df1)
ID                                used_at   
574c4969b017ae6481db9a7c77328bc3  2015-05-01    1
                                  2015-06-01    1
                                  2015-07-01    1
                                  2015-08-01    1
                                  2015-08-02    1
                                  2015-08-03    1
                                  2015-08-04    1
e990fae0f48b7daf52619b5ccbec61bc  2015-05-01    2
                                  2015-05-02    1
                                  2015-06-01    3
dtype: int64

Differences between count and size in SO documentation.
