You can cancel your paid plan at any time, and all future billing will stop.

We do not provide pro-rated refunds for plans that are cancelled part way through a billing period. We recommend waiting until the end of your billing period before you cancel your plan to take full advantage of your monthly subscription cost. However, in all cases, our 30 day money back guarantee always applies.

After your paid plan is cancelled, your plan will downgrade immediately back down to the Free Basic tier and all opt out progress stops.
Steps to cancel your account:

Log in to your Optery account

Click on Account in the left navigation

Scroll to the bottom of the page and then click the red button that says "Cancel Plan"

A common misconception is that profiles are immediately added back to the data brokers after a paid plan subscription is cancelled, but this is not the case. Every data broker honors opt outs a little bit differently. Some data brokers honor opt outs indefinitely, but others require annual effort to ensure your name and personal info stays removed. This is why we recommend keeping your account at Optery active on an ongoing basis.

And you can learn more about how long opt out removals last on our Help Desk here.
