If earlier, it was a bit unusual to use paid services, but now it is becoming the norm and many subscribe to music, movies, books and other things. For example, Apple Music, Netflix, Google Music and more.

In general, the subscription goes to the application and for a certain fee per month, you get content or a set of functions. But it happens that I want to cancel a paid subscription, and given the logic of the iPhone or Android, finding the right item is not always possible the first time.

The process of disconnecting any paid subscription is quite simple and takes not so much your time. An example of solving this problem will be made on iOS 11.3. I think in future versions everything will be similar.

How to view / disable paid subscriptions on iPhone?

The title sounds exactly this way, because both actions will be available to you when the necessary instruction is implemented.

There are two ways to unsubscribe from the app in the App Store. Both lead to the same item, just a little different from each other.

Removing a paid subscription on iPhone through Settings

Just follow these steps:

1. Go to Settings and tap on your name;

2. Select iTunes Store and App Store;

3. The first line will contain your Apple ID, and tap it;

 iTunes Store and App Store and tap Apple ID 

4. From the menu that appears, tap on View Apple ID;

tap on View Apple ID 

5. Find the subscription item at the bottom;

Find the subscription 

6. Choose the subscription you want to disable (for example, Apple Music);

Choose the Apple Music subscription 

7. Tap Unsubscribe.

Tap Unsubscribe

As it is written below, the already paid period, the service will still work, but then it will simply not automatically withdraw money from your account.

Unsubscribe from a paid subscription on iPhone through the App Store

Well, the second method, which also has the right to exist:

1. Go to the App Store application;

2. In the upper right corner find the account icon;

3. Tap on the name;

4. Look for the Subscriptions item again;

5. Select the subscription you want to refuse;

6. Unsubscribe.

Judging by the number of steps, the second method of deleting a subscription through the App Store will be a little faster. The most important thing is that you will be able to achieve the desired result, but the way is already chosen at the discretion.

How to cancel subscription in Google Play?

The Android operating system allows users to subscribe to various applications and services through Google Play. If you subscribe to the app through the Play Store, Google automatically uses your saved payment method in each new period of using the service, and this will happen until the subscription is canceled. You can cancel your subscription either through the Google Play app or through the official Google Play website. Please note: uninstalling (deleting) the application does not cancel the subscription, even if you no longer use the service, a fee will be charged.

Every day, some (and considerable) part of users of Android devices suddenly realize that money is running out too quickly from a mobile phone account, from a bank card or from another place where they would seem to be stored safely. After viewing the printout, it becomes clear: the money is withdrawn in payment for subscriptions purchased on the Google Play Store or executed with applications. The man played, listened or used in a different way - and forgot.


Google remembers and does not forget to charge not even for use, but for the opportunity to use the service or an application. But why pay if all this is no longer relevant? It is necessary to get rid of unnecessary expenses, and in this case it is not difficult to do this.

How to cancel a subscription in Google Play on an Android device?

To unsubscribe from an Android device, first open the Google Play Store app. Click the menu button in the upper left corner of the Google Play app, and then select "Subscriptions” in the sidebar to view the ones you have.

Click Cancel Subscription to confirm the cancellation​ 

You will see a number of subscriptions that you agreed to pay through Google Play, as well as the price of each subscription. Once you have given your consent to pay the invoice once, the subscription fee will be charged automatically, without notifying the user and his consent. To cancel a subscription, click the "Cancel" button next to it.

Click "Cancel Subscription" to confirm the cancellation. You should receive a message that you can continue to use the functions of the subscription until a certain date - up to the one for which the use is paid. As soon as the paid time ends, the subscription will be disabled and there will be no charge for it.

How to cancel a subscription from the Internet?

If you don't have an Android device at hand, you can use your home computer to cancel your subscription online. This action must be performed on the Google Play website. To cancel a subscription, go to Google Play and click on the "My Subscriptions” field on the left side of the page. This section lists all active subscriptions you use on Google Play. To cancel a subscription, click the "Cancel" link next to it.

You need to click "Unsubscribe" to confirm that you really want to cancel the subscription. As in the previous case, you can continue to use the subscription until the paid time has expired.

If you don't see your subscription on either Google Play or in your account after logging in from a PC connected to the Internet, make sure that you are signed in to the same Google account with which you first subscribed to the application. Subscriptions shown on Google Play are linked to your Google account. Do not forget about it when you are thinking of getting rid of unnecessary expenses on them.
