How to Turn Off Xbox Live Auto Renew


Hi. I’m Max Dalton, and in this video, I’m going
to talk through how to turn off Xbox Live auto renew. Xbox Live is a multimedia powerhouse that
lets you play games with friends, download game demos, access your Netflix accounts and
social networks, and much, much more. However, when you sign up for the service
the payment for Xbox Live is set up as an automatic renewal, meaning that the money
you pay for your Xbox Live subscription is automatically taken out of the payment method
linked to your account when it’s due with minimal notification, which makes it easier
for a company to slip by rate hikes. If you don’t feel comfortable with letting
Microsoft dip into your account so easily and want to disable the automatic renewal
option for your Xbox Live account, you can do so through the Xbox Live website. The only downside is that you’ll need to remember
to renew your Xbox Live membership, or your account will be deactivated and you’ll need
to reactivate it. And now, the steps to turn off Xbox Live auto
renew. Step 1. Open your Web browser and navigate to www.xbox.com. The Microsoft Account website appears. Step 2. Click “Sign In” in the upper right corner
of the screen. The Xbox Live Sign In window appears. Step 3. Enter the email address associated with your
Xbox Live account, and then click the green “Next” button. A prompt for the password associated with
your account appears. Step 4. Enter the password associated with your Xbox
Live account, and then click the green “Next” button. You’ll be returned to the Xbox Live home screen,
where you’ll now see your gamertag and profile picture in the upper right corner of the screen. Step 5. Click your gamertag in the upper right corner
of the screen. A drop-down menu appears. Step 6. Click “Xbox Settings” in the drop-down menu. The Xbox Settings screen appears. Step 7. Click “Subscriptions” beneath Xbox Settings
on the left side of the window. The Services and Subscriptions screen appears. Step 8. Select “Manage” to the right of the line item
in the section associated with your Xbox Live subscription. This line item will have a refresh icon to
the left of it. The Payment Settings window opens. Step 9. Click “Turn Off Auto Renew” to the right of
the line item that says Renews Automatically. A dialog box asking if you’re sure you want
to disable Xbox Live auto renew appears. Step 10. Select “Yes, I Want to Miss Out on Free Games”
in a gray box. A message appears informing you that your
Xbox Live subscription will not auto renew appears, along with the date that your current
subscription expires. Step 11. Click the blue “Back to Subscriptions” button
to return to the Payment Settings window, where you’ll have the option to turn the Auto
Renew feature back on if you ever want to.
