How to delete your Surfshark account?

Surfshark is a popular VPN service provider. It’s easy to use Surfshark VPN on any of your devices. But deleting your Surfshark account is not straightforward at all. You can’t just click a button and delete your account. 

There’s no option to delete your account from your end. You have to email them saying you want to delete your account, and then one of their representatives will get back to you with the process.

Uninstalling the app isn’t a solution.

Some people may think that uninstalling the app from their device will cancel the subscription or delete their account. But in reality, it won’t solve any of your problems.

If you uninstall the app from your computer, you must pay recurring fees every month/year unless you go to live chat and ask them to cancel your subscription.

You will still be charged if you uninstall the app from your smartphone but don’t manually cancel the subscription from the App store/Play Store. 

Most subscription-based companies make it harder for users to cancel or delete their accounts. It should be one click process, yet they prefer you to go through the live chat or email so that they can convince you to stay.
