For PayPal’s website on a laptop, you just:
- Log in to your account
- Open up the settings tab
- Click on the “Payments” option
- Look for “Manage automatic payments” and locate the Shudder subscription
- Then click on it to open up a side tab showing the history and information

PayPal Mobile App
For the smartphone app, log into your account, and at the bottom of the screen, go to “Payments” and tap on “Bills.” This will show all your pre-approved monthly payments and where you will find your recurring payments to Shudder.
Select the service and scroll to the bottom to find “cancel subscription” in blue and tap it. Follow the prompts to cancel your Shudder subscription, and then you are done.
Cancelling Shudder Via Google Play
Open up your Google Play app and tap on your profile picture in the top right-hand corner of the screen, then tap on “Payments & Subscriptions.” Select subscriptions and tap on Shudder. Select cancel and follow the prompts from the Google play store.

How To Delete Your Shudder Account
If you no longer plan to use Shudder and wish to completely delete your account, these next steps will help you to delete your account permanently. There is no other way to deactivate your Shudder account at this time.
Go to your email that is registered with Shudder and start a new message with email@example.com as the recipient and “Request to delete my account” as the subject. Write out your request with “delete my account and database” in bold font and send it.
Once a Shudder customer support representative receives the email, they will begin the process of deactivating your account.
Once processed, you will receive an email stating that your Shudder account will be or has been deleted. While not stated specifically by Shudder, it is safe to assume that once an account is deleted, there’s no getting it back, and a new account will need to be created to use their services again.
Can I Cancel My Shudder Subscription After The Free Trial?
Yes, you can cancel your Shudder subscription anytime through the steps above from your devices. You cannot, however, delete an account at the moment in the apps for iOS and Android. You must write an email stating you wish for the account to be deleted- this prevents any accidental account deletions.
Is A Shudder Subscription Worth It?
If you’re a horror fanatic, enthusiast, and hard-core fan, then absolutely. New content is added weekly, and there is something for every level of horror fan. From the classics to newer horror films, horror series of every subgenre, and original curated content- Shudder has it all.

Shudder even has a live broadcast channel, called Shudder TV, that plays 24/7, in case you’re not sure what to watch- so long as it’s something scary. You can access the channel through a designated desktop website or the Shudder TV tab in mobile apps.
