How to Cancel a Google Drive Storage Subscription

  • How you cancel a Google Drive storage subscription (also called Google One) will depend on how you signed up.
  • If you joined Google One with your computer or Android device, you can cancel through the Google One website or app.
  • If you signed in with an iPhone or iPad, you’ll need to cancel using the Apple ID menu.

By default, every Google Drive account comes with 15 GB of free storage space. But if you want to increase that amount, you can subscribe to Google One and unlock up to 30 TB of space.

Once you sign up for Google One, it doesn’t take long to cancel it. And even after you cancel, you’ll still be able to keep your storage space until your next billing date.

Here’s how to cancel a Google One plan and stop paying for Google Drive.

If you signed in on your iPhone or iPad

Apple is pretty strict when it comes to signing up for subscriptions with their devices. So if you signed in to Google One on an iPhone or iPad, you almost certainly did so with your Apple ID.

With your iPhone or iPad, make the Institutions app and tap your Apple ID name at the top of the menu. Choose the Subscriptions option, then tap either the Google Drive or Google One option.

Once it’s open, select the Cancel subscription option and confirm that you really want to end it.
