2. In the menu that opens, tap “Payments & subscriptions”, and then Subscriptions.

3. Select Findmypast from your list of subscriptions, then select the “Cancel Subscription” option. Confirm your preference.

If the above three methods did not work, another option is to mail the support asking the team to cancel your account.

If that’s the case, on your account page you will see either a link to guide you through the cancellation process with your billing company or instructions to contact your billing company to cancel. You can also contact Findmypast support directly to see who’s managing your subscription.

How to cancel Findmypast subscription if you no longer have access to your account

In the case where you’re not using a third-party provider to pay for your subscription, you’ll need assistance signing in. Click “Need help?” button on the Findmypast login page and answer all the relevant questions relating to your account.
