Canceling PlayStation Plus is a simple process that can be done through your PSN account, a PlayStation 4, or a PlayStation 5.
Long gone are the days of studios like Nintendo and Sony offering a free online experience with their home consoles. The Xbox Live model proved ludicrous enough for Microsoft that it was only a matter of time before their competitors followed suit. Ultimately, putting a price on online capabilities has done little to improve the state of gaming. While Sony incentivizes players to stay subscribed to PlayStation Plus through a number of monthly freebies, the fact of the matter is that most people don’t need to be spending a monthly subscription for what used to be a perk of buying an expensive home console.
Canceling PlayStation Plus can be done through your PSN account, a PlayStation 4, or a PlayStation 5. Along with PlayStation Now, PlayStation Plus arguably isn’t worth the price and it pays to know how to cancel the service for good. Keep in mind that canceling PlayStation Plus means losing any and all free games downloaded through your subscription along with being locked out of online multiplayer.
Canceling Through PSN
To cancel PlayStation Plus through the PSN browser, first sign into your account on a computer or the PlayStation app. Once you’re on the Account Management page, click the Subscription tab on the left under “PlayStation Network.” Subscriptions Management will show you any active subscriptions you have along with the price of your next charge and renewal date.
To cancel your PlayStation Plus, simply click “Turn Off Auto-Renew” and confirm that you actually want to cancel. You’ll still be able to use your PlayStation Plus subscription until its former renewal date (now an expiration date), but it otherwise won’t renew. For the extra cautious, feel free to remove your payment info under Payment Method on the left.
Canceling On PS4
From the PlayStation 4 hub menu, go up to the taskbar and click on the PlayStation Plus icon. Go to the Manage Membership tab on the top right of the screen and click Subscription. You’ll be taken to a menu where you can either Extend your PlayStation Plus or cancel it. Click on Turn Off Auto-Renew, confirm you actually want to cancel, and answer the feedback to cut off PS+ on PS4.
Canceling On PS5
From the PlayStation 5 hub menu, click Settings on the top right of the screen. Click Users and Accounts, go to the Account tab, and select Payment and Subscriptions. Scroll all the way down and click Subscriptions to be taken to a screen where you can select your PlayStation Plus. Click it and you’ll be able to either extend your subscription or cancel it. Like on PS4, click Turn Off Auto-Renew and confirm that you want to cancel.
