Check the Apple ID settings if you start your membership from the iOS app. If you wish to withdraw your LinkedIn Premium on an Android, go to Google Play and stop the membership in the subscription manager.

Do it at least 1-2 days before the billing date, so you can be sure that you are no longer a paid member. You can also get a money-back if you stop the premium subscription on LinkedIn in 1-2 days on iPhone/Android or 5-7 days on the web version.

All those instructions apply to the trial version too. The system counts a free premium as an already paid membership.

Thank you soo much 😅

Yes, it is because of Californian law. But why they couldn’t leave just California and implement it worldwide? I don’t understand!
Invalid Date
As I knew, it was because of Californian 2018 law. But why they won’t let users some extra ways to end the membership? What if I lost my phone and I don’t remember my Apple ID? I don’t like this stuff. Hope that LinkedIn will stop this madness
Invalid Date
OMG! Same! Same!
Invalid Date
Same here! I was sooooo confused. These policies are illogical to me. Why do not let people stop their membership both on the phone and browser versions?
Invalid Date
I don’t understand those policies too! What if I don’t remember how I subscribed in the first place?
Invalid Date
I still don’t understand those policies when you can unsubscribe in any way you want, so you need to stick to the same device. Btw, thanks! I tried to cancel Linkedin from my PC, but it didn’t work well for me. And now I understand why

Guys, I’m British and need to use the internet to find out why I can’t unsubscribe from the browser version. So this law REALLY impacts everyone.

So, that was the reason, why I can’t stop the subscription right from PC. Thanks!
