Unsubscribe from a section

Unsubscribe from all publications and Substack emails

If you'd like to unsubscribe from every Substack publication you're subscribed to and also stop receiving Substack emails, you can do this in your Advanced Settings section of your Settings page.

Note: Disabling all emails will completely unsubscribe you from a publication. This means you will not receive email newsletters, see posts in the Substack app, or see the publication under your Subscriptions.
