Cancel your Office 365 Home or Office 365 Personal subscription

Tip   If you are using a business or education version of Office 365, see how to cancel your subscription.

If you cancel your subscription, you’ll be able to use Office and any included services until the end of your subscription period. For example, if you have a yearly subscription that expires on December 31 and you cancel it in June, you’ll be able to use it through December 31, but it won’t be renewed.

After your subscription expires, Office will run in reduced functionality mode. That means 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.

To cancel your subscription, go to your account page. In the Renewal Information section, click Cancel Subscription.

Note    If you see Automatic renewal: On, you can click Turn off auto-renew instead of Cancel Subscription. Your subscription won’t automatically renew when it expires.
