What happens after I cancel my subscription?

Your subscription is displayed as Canceled in your online accounts. You’ll also receive an email from MacPaw or from the App Store that confirms the cancelation. If you can’t find the email in your inbox, check the Spam folder.

Once canceled, your subscription will not renew automatically and there will be no withdrawal from your payment card. However, you can continue enjoying all the features of CleanMyMac X till the end of the current paid period (you can see its last day in your accounts too).

After your paid subscription expires, most features of CleanMyMac X get locked until you start a paid plan again. Surely, you can always resubscribe to CleanMyMac X at the MacPaw Store or the App Store. Just choose a suitable CleanMyMac X plan and buy it. We’ll be happy to see you back!
