There is no such feature unless you want to trip security that even you can’t log in.


If you want to stop a recurring payment, go to merchant website and follow their directions to pause or cancel recurring payments, then:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Click Payments.
  3. Click Manage automatic payments.
  4. Select the merchant.
  5. Click Cancel.
  6. Be sure to go to Data & Privacy on the sub menu on the Settings page to Remove any permissions given to the site/merchant.

To restart, recurring payment, you’ll have to resubscribe to their services again by paying for another subscription.


For business account:


  1. Go to Account Settings.
  2. Click Money, Banks and Cards.
  3. Click Set Automatic Payments.
  4. Select the merchant.
  5. Click Cancel.
