While Kindle Unlimited offers you access to countless ebooks, there may come a time when you are no longer using it.

If you wish to cancel your Kindle Unlimited membership, you can navigate to the “Manage my membership” section on the Amazon website. There you’ll find your current plan and payment settings, along with the option to cancel. It’s important to note that these changes can only be made online and not on any Amazon app.

It’s also worth noting that while your account will be cancelled, you’ll still have access to your borrowed titles until your membership expires. Your membership will expire on the date you were to be charged a fee. Your borrowed books will be removed from your library and your billing will end then.

Here’s how to cancel.
