Fitness Pals With Downsides—How To Cancel MyFitnessPal Using DoNotPay

MyFitnessPal is a smartphone app that helps users track their diet and fitness progress. While it doesn’t always keep people running on treadmills, it does keep running up their bill. The company is notorious for making it difficult to cancel their premium subscription. Their business dealings sometimes alienate users, who get charged even after canceling the app. 

DoNotPay knows how to deal with companies that won’t let you cancel. We can help you cancel any subscription and walk away without being billed again. Use our Find Hidden Money feature to get rid of MyFitnessPal Premium within minutes.

How To Cancel MyFitnessPal on Your Own


The MyFitnessPal app is available on iOS and Android devices, each of which has different policies when it comes to canceling an app subscription. You can cancel the MyFitnessPal Premium auto-renew feature through these channels:

  1. iTunes
  2. Google Play Store
  3. Web browser

Cancel MyFitnessPal on iOS

All iTunes purchases are handled by the platform, so there’s no need to contact MyFitnessPal. To cancel on iOS, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings tab on your device
  2. Tap iTunes & App Store
  3. Hit your Apple ID and then tap View Apple ID
  4. Press Manage
  5. Disable auto-renew for MyFitnessPal

Keep in mind that users have been charged even after canceling on the iTunes store. Contacting the company seldom works unless you start threatening chargebacks. You can use DoNotPay’s Find Hidden Money feature to cancel the subscription for good.

Does the MyFitnessPal Premium Free Trial Auto-Renew?

If you signed up for the app’s free trial, you should know that it will auto-renew into a paid subscription. To avoid being charged after the trial, make sure you cancel at least 72 hours before the start of the next billing period. 

The company claims you should cancel 24 hours beforehand but mentions elsewhere that requests may take up to three days to process.

You can avoid risking your money on free trial auto-renewals by using DoNotPay’s virtual credit card generator. It works by creating a card that will work during the signup process, even though it doesn’t contain any funds. Once the free trial is over, you don’t have to worry about being charged.

Feel the Burn With Other Fitness Apps

Once you’ve shaken your MyFitnessPal subscription, you can start looking for a replacement to help track your fitness routine and diet. The good news is that there are plenty of alternatives to choose from. Take a look at these examples and see if they fit your needs better than MyFitnessPal:

Company Pricing Benefits

  • Interconnected network with other users
  • Simple and attractive UI

  • Shareable fitness routines
  • Activity logging

Does MyFitnessPal Offer Prorated Refunds?

After canceling MyFitnessPal Premium, you will not receive a refund for unused time in the subscription. You may continue using the app until the next billing period. If you cancel a free trial, you can’t continue using the subscription.
