Cancel your free trial of Office 365 Home

You can cancel your Office 365 Home trial within 30 days of signing up and you won't be charged.

  1. Sign in to the page using the Microsoft account that's associated with your Office 365 Home trial. We can help if you can't remember the Microsoft account or password you use with Office.

  2. Under your Office 365 subscription, look for the Expires on date or a Cancel link as described below.

If you don't see a Cancel link, and you see Paid with and None, your trial will end on the Expires on date. You don't need to cancel because no future payments will be made.

If your Office 365 trial was installed on your new PC, it will expire on the date shown

If you don't see a Cancel link and you see a Turn on auto-renew link, automatic renewal is turned off. Your trial will end on the Expires on date. You don't need to cancel because no future payments will be made.

If you see a Cancel link under Office 365 Home, select Cancel to cancel your trial.

After you cancel, you can use Office in View Only mode or uninstall Office

You can continue to use Office for a short time after your trial ends. Eventually, Office will run in View Only mode and will show Unlicensed Product notifications. You’ll still be able to open and print your documents but you won’t be able to edit them or to create new ones. You’ll also lose access to the services that are included with your subscription, such as extra OneDrive storage and Skype minutes. This also applies to anyone you've shared your Office 365 Home trial with.

You can uninstall Office from your PC and uninstall Office 2016 from your Mac at any time.

Note: If you need to create or edit Office documents, you can use online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote for free at To learn more, see Get started at If you're using a Windows 10 device, you may already have the free Office Mobile apps installed.
