CyberGhost VPN is widely available, across all major platforms to ensure that Privacy is never out of reach. Be it as it may, obtaining a refund or just that you would like to cancel the subscription, the scope of the tutorial is to make sure that the process is documented for you.
Note: Having all receipts ready, will speed up the process for the Support Team to assist.
Purchased from www.cyberghostvpn.com
With payment methods such as credit card, PayPal or BitPay, making a purchase through your Internet browser has never been easier. This applies vice-versa too!
* If canceling the subscription is needed for your on-line purchase, first access the CyberGhost Account Dashboard (simply click the link to open the Account in a different tab).
** With the Account Dashboard opened, head to My subscriptions.
*** Once the My Subscriptions tab is opened, simply head to "Turn Auto-renewal off". That's it !
Q: What does "Turn Auto-Renewal off" do for me ?
A: It simply stops future charges from happening and the remaining time in your account will still continue to run but premium access will stop once time runs out.
Note: If this is too cumbersome or provides to take up too much time, why not reach out to the Support Team @ CyberGhost and a CyberGhost representative will be happy to handle it for you.
Purchased with my iTunes account
To stop future charges from happening, cancelling the subscription can be done from your iOS device.
It's that easy and with a just few taps, you are done on the fly !
* Open the Settings menu on your iPhone or iPad
* Tap the name that appears at the top of the Settings menu(typically has the iTunes account name)
* Tap on iTunes & App Store
* Tap Apple ID(at the very top of the screen) and choose View Apple ID. Log-in your Apple ID
* Scroll down to Subscriptions and locate the CyberGhost subscription. Tap on it
* Tap Cancel Subscription(you will receive a pop-up message to confirm that you wish to cancel the subscription)
That's it !
NOTE: This will mean that canceling the subscription will apply for future charges - not for charges that have happened already and for past charges.
Q: Where can I reach Apple and why do I have to do it ?
A: The most frequent ways are either phone or in writing.
- via phone: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201232
- in writing: https://support.apple.com/en-euro/itunes-contact
As CyberGhost cannot make the request on your behalf, the most direct approach would be from the customer himself.
Contacting Apple is the only direction to go.
Only Apple can refund purchases made via iTunes but luckily, they can be reached !
Purchased via Google Play Store
Similar to what the process is for iTunes purchases, the same direction can be taken when the charge has happened via Google Play Store. Luckily too, there are ways to cancel the subscription for Android as well!
* Open the Google Play Store app on your Android device
* Head to the Menu button(located in the upper left corner of the Google Play Store)
* After the Menu field expands press on Subscriptions > choose the CyberGhost VPN subscription
* Press Cancel Subscription(located in the lower part of the page)
* Tap Cancel Subscription / Trial in the pop-up message that will display.
You are done !
Q: Where can I reach Google if I am having trouble with cancelling the subscription ?
A: With the following link, you will take good steps in the right direction:
I just have a trial account with no purchase completed
With trial periods, charges only happen after the trial period ends. Have you already cancelled the subscription as shown above before the last day of your trial ? Then it means that you will not be charged at all.
The process was simplified for the use of everyone.
Q: I want to make sure that I will not be charged. What do I do ?
A: With any concern or question that you may have, the Support Team @ CyberGhost VPN will always be ready to assist. Just get in touch with them and let them know what happened.
