What happens when you cancel Grindr subscription?
Canceling a subscription is different from deleting your account from an app or site. Canceling a subscription means that you would no longer pay to access premium features. After trying the premium features of the apps, some subscribers would opt on stopping it and so they would cancel their subscriptions.
Don’t worry, after you cancel your subscription you can still log in to your account. You can subscribe to the premium membership again if you want to. For most apps, your subscription will not immediately be ended.
It would be ended by the end of your billing date. So if you cancel your subscription on February 20 but your billing will end on March 5, then your subscription will end on March 5. Cancellations of subscriptions mean that you do not want to be billed the following month.
Can you ask for a refund for a Grindr subscription?
Since you can use the premium features until the end of your next billing period even if you had unsubscribed, you cannot be given a refund. This could be disappointing to you if you subscribed for an annual membership and you decided after only a few months that you want to cancel the subscription.
If you are using iOS and paid directly using Apple Pay, then you have to contact Apple Support with regards to the refunds. Apple does not have a separate refund policy on subscriptions but if you want to refute your claim then you should discuss it with them.
As for Google Play or Android, you can message Grindr on how to process refunds. Payment and charges for subscriptions made in Grindr are final and absolute.
There is a premium trial that is offered from time to time but you will be asked for your credit or debit card information. If you are unable to cancel your subscription before the trial period, then your card will automatically be charged.
Make sure to cancel your subscription if you are decided. Subscription is free. Grindr has Terms of Services you can check in case you have more questions about refunds and cancellations.
Can’t cancel Grindr subscription?
The steps in canceling your Grindr subscription are short and easy. It does not require a long process but just a few taps and you are good. The main challenge why some people are not able to easily cancel their subscription is on the phone they are using. iOS is used exclusively on iPhones and they have similar settings.
Android could run on any other smartphone. Some smartphones, despite using Android Operating System have a different configuration that it would be difficult for them to look for what they should tap or press. This could be a challenge and they would just give up on canceling their subscriptions.
Another reason for not being able to cancel the subscription is forgetting their passwords. Google Play and iOS are connected to your email address. You can log in automatically if you sync them to the email address you use on your phone.
This is not true for all. Some people would use different email addresses for security purposes. This could lead to confusion and they would forget their log-in information and would take time to cancel since they would need to recover their password first.
If you have more challenges in canceling your subscription, you can contact the customer support of Grindr and ask for their help.
