Cancel your Twitch subscription on desktop

If you’re already on your desktop computer, canceling your subscription is a simple process. Here’s where to go.

Step 1: Head to the Subscriptions page on your Twitch account. If you don’t sign in automatically, you’ll have to input your Twitch username and password.

Step 2: Look for the Cog icon in the upper-right corner of the window. Select this to change how your subscription works.

Step 3: You will see options to change your subscription or change how you pay. But if you want to cancel entirely, select Don’t renew subscription.

Choose Don't Renew Subscription.

Step 4: Twitch will bring up a list of reasons to pick from to indicate why you are canceling. Select whichever you want, then select Don’t renew subscription again. Note the date at the bottom, which shows when you can once again subscribe if you change your mind.

Choose your reason for canceling Twitch.

Step 5: Keep in mind, Twitch subscription lengths can vary. If you have your account set to renew every three months and you are only one month in, you’ll still have two months left before your subscription is canceled.
