How can I cancel my Guardio trial?

Guardio offers everyone a 7-day, no-obligation free trial, so you can give it a try before you buy. At the end of your free trial, your subscription will be activated and you’ll be charged on the payment method you provided during signup.

At any point during your first 7 days, you can cancel your free trial and your Premium protection will expire at the end of the trial. You’ll then get Guardio protection on our basic Plan, which is free, and you won’t be charged. You can upgrade to Premium and reactivate full protection at any time.

Important Note: Deleting your Guardio account and/or uninstalling the Guardio extension will not cancel your free trial or active subscription. Cancellation steps differ depending on where you subscribed.
