Can You Cancel Fubo Anytime?

Yes—you can cancel Fubo whenever you want to, but it’s always a good idea to send your request a few days before the subscription renewal date to give the company time to process it. Fubo isn’t contract-based and doesn’t require an early cancellation fee

You should also know that:

  • If you cancel a paid Fubo subscription, you’ll be able to use the service until the end of the billing cycle.
  • Fubo doesn’t issue refunds for prepaid and unused services.
  • If you cancel a FuboTV free trial, you’ll lose access to your subscription immediately. The same is not true if you’ve signed up for it via Roku—in that case, you’ll be able to use the subscription until the free trial expires.

Is It Easy To Cancel Fubo?

According to reviews, most users were able to cancel Fubo easily, but some claimed to have been charged after cancellation. However, many were able to get timely assistance and a full refund from customer support. 

While Fubo seems to prioritize customers’ interests, the same can’t be said for many other subscription-based companies. Mistakes and inadvertent charges do happen, but some companies design a complicated cancellation funnel on purpose to trick you into remaining subscribed. These companies may employ various tactics to get their way—from confusing you with ambiguous language to exhausting you with in-person or over-the-phone cancellation steps. In the end, you may end up missing a crucial step and having to pay another month of the subscription you no longer want or continue to be charged even after completing the process.

While you may have to go through the challenging cancellation process, you can protect yourself against unwarranted charges in the meantime by using virtual cards to pay for subscriptions.

Virtual cards are connected to a real funding source but mask your financial information at checkout to protect it from various forms of misuse. By choosing an independent virtual card provider like Privacy, you’ll also get access to various features that allow you to control your spending.

Protect Your Funds From Unwanted Charges With Privacy Virtual Cards

Privacy Virtual Cards protect you not only from potential hackers who breach merchants’ servers but also from merchants who may attempt to charge you above the agreed price. You can link your debit card or bank account with Privacy and generate virtual cards for any occasion. You have two types of virtual cards at your disposal:

  1. Single-Use Card—This card closes minutes after the first transaction is completed. For this reason, the card is suitable for one-time purchases and transactions with merchants whose reliability you’re unsure of.
  2. Merchant-Locked Card—This card “locks” to the first merchant you transact with and blocks charges from other merchants. It’s ideal for merchants you frequently buy from and subscription services, such as HelloFresh, Amazon Prime, and YouTubeTV.

Merchant-Locked Cards offer additional perks to help you manage your subscription payments—learn about them in the table below:

Card Pausing and Closing You can pause or close your cards in a few clicks without affecting the underlying funding source. Privacy will block all further charges on a paused or closed card. The card pausing and closing feature can help you when you want to stop a subscription—you’ll be able to deal with the company’s cancellation procedure without any unwarranted charges sneaking by.
Spending Limits You can set spending limits on your virtual cards, and Privacy will decline all charges that exceed them. This way, no subscription service will manage to bill you for more than you agreed.

Privacy—Sign Up in Four Easy Steps

Privacy Cards can be used with most merchants and websites that accept U.S. Visa® and Mastercard® payments, including sports subscriptions like ESPN Plus and NFL Plus or generalized streaming platforms like Hulu, Netflix, and Disney Plus.

Getting Privacy Virtual Cards is straightforward—you only have to:

  1. Sign up
  2. Provide the details needed to verify your identity
  3. Link a debit card or bank account
  4. Request your virtual cards

The Personal pricing plan, which is free for domestic purchases, includes 12 virtual cards a month and all the above-mentioned card controls. It also gives you access to Privacy’s browser extension and app.

The browser extension autofills virtual card numbers at checkout, so you never have to memorize them. The extension works with all the popular browsers—Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Edge, as well as Safari for iOS, bringing fast and seamless checkouts to iPhone and iPad users. The mobile app, available for iOS and Android, allows you to create and manage virtual cards on the go.

Opt for the Pro ($10/month) or Premium ($25/month) plan if you need additional cards and features such as:

  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Priority support
  • 1% cashback on eligible purchases (up to $4,500 a month)
Privacy — Seamless & Secure Online Card Payments
Checkout securely online by creating unique virtual card numbers for every purchase. Avoid data breaches, unwanted charges, and stolen credit card numbers.
