How to Cancel a Deceased Loved One’s Grammarly Premium Subscription

Do you have a deceased loved one who still has a premium subscription to Grammarly? Below, you can find information to help cancel your loved one’s subscription with ease. 

Step 1: Complete the same steps above

The process listed above also works in this case. You can head online to update your loved one’s Grammarly account, cancel their subscription, and delete the account as well. 

You will need the username and password to your loved one’s Grammarly account. If you don’t have access to your deceased loved one’s password, try checking to see if they had a password manager. If that is the case, you may be able to access their password manager with a secret key and/or master password provided in their end-of-life documents. 

Step 2: Find additional assistance through Grammarly

By following the steps above you can manage this cancelation through the Grammarly website. That said, if you run into any problems, you can go to their help page and find more resources like frequently asked questions.

If you choose to put in a request to Grammarly’s customer service, make sure that you provide them with specific details like the deceased’s login information (email address and password). You may not need to give them a death certificate, which is the legitimate document that proves the death occurred, but it doesn’t hurt to keep a scanned copy at the ready.

In general, having your loved one’s death certificate handy can help you to manage other executor tasks. You can find out more about getting a death certificate by speaking to the funeral home director that helped your family or a state’s vital records office.
