Know how to unsubscribe from auto-renewal service

cancel Norton subscription

Today many programs are available for subscriptions. For free programs, you don’t require a license. But for premium programs, the user has to purchase the license. Once he gets the license, he can access the program or tool on his device easily. Most of the programs offer different licenses for different devices. You can choose the subscription for the system according to the service needs. The merit of using a subscription is that you can purchase the license whenever you require. When the user is not using the program then he doesn’t need to get the subscription. In a yearly subscription, the user has to purchase the license once a year.

But monthly subscriptions can be bothersome. To make your job easy, many programs offer an auto-renewal feature. When a person is using auto-renewal, his program doesn’t expire and renews automatically. When you don’t want to use the program anymore then you must cancel auto-renewal. The auto-renewal process continues even if you remove the setup. The billing will appear on your banking account. So, before the plan auto-renews, cancel the auto-subscription of your plan. 

Cancelling the auto-subscription of your program 

When you are not using the program in the future then you should cancel the auto-subscription. Many people think that if they cancel the auto-renewal, they can’t use the program later. Cancelling the subscription will only prevent auto-renewal. If the user has the remaining days on his subscription, he can use it till the provided date. Once his program license expires, he can renew the subscription manually. Users can cancel their subscription from the online account.
