How do I unsubscribe from a free subscription?

Want to stop receiving a newsletter in your inbox?

The easiest way to unsubscribe from a free publication is to scroll to the bottom of any email you've received from a writer and select "Unsubscribe".


Once you click "Unsubscribe" a new window will open and you'll need to select "Turn off emails".


Note: If you're subscribed to sections within a publication, you'll need to unsubscribe from each section via the instructions below. Unsubscribing via email will not be complete if the publication has multiple sections.

Unsubscribe directly from your Substack account

Step one: Navigate to your Account Settings page at this link:

Tip: Find steps here on how to log into your Substack account.

Step two: Once you're logged in, click on "Edit" next to the publication you'd like to unsubscribe from.

Step three: Under Email notifications, uncheck the box next to Newsletter posts.

Tip: If you'd like to unsubscribe from all your publications, click on "Disable email for all subscriptions" on your Account Settings page.
