How do I cancel my Business or Enterprise subscription if I've signed up for my account online?

To ensure that your cancellation is addressed immediately please follow the below process. Note that any cancellation requests made through other channels may be missed (and you may continued to get billed). Only an Administrator can cancel an account on-line. Your account will be canceled at the end of your billing period. You and your users will have access to your account until that date. 


  1. Sign into your account as the Administrator.
  2. Visit: or go to your Business Settings page from the Admin Console.
  3. From here, click on "Cancel Your Account."
