How to Get Your PrivacyGuard Free Trial With a Virtual Credit Card

In this day and age, it's very important to safeguard your privacy and your financial information. So if this is something that you would like to take charge of in your life, you can opt for the . Like many other apps and online platforms, Privacy Guard gives you the option of trying it out before you commit to paying for it each month.

The problem with many free trials is that you need to provide a credit card number to sign up for them. And then, if you forget to cancel the subscription before the end of the trial period, you end up getting charged for at least a month, even if you never intended to continue using that platform.

This is why it makes sense to use DoNotPay which can help you to generate a virtual credit card number. This number is good for one use, but you can generate as many of them as you want and sign up for several free trials. Since the virtual credit card number doesn't have a line of credit to back it up, you will not end up getting charged at the end of the month.

Can You Try PrivacyGuard Without Paying the Full Amount?

PrivacyGuard does give you the option of trying any of its services for the low price of $1 for 14 days. To do this, you will have to give them your credit card number, and you will be charged $1. And if you forget to unsubscribe during those 14 days, then your credit card will automatically be charged for the plan that you originally signed up for.

Although PrivacyGuard does give you the option of trying its services for a nominal fee, you do run the risk of paying more later, unless you remember to unsubscribe. Unfortunately, most people tend to forget to unsubscribe, or they assume that they will receive some kind of notice before their credit card will be charged, which is not the case.

So if you sign up for the , you might end up being charged a minimum of $9.99 and a maximum of $24.99 at the end of it, depending on which plan you signed up for. And if you didn't find it all that useful, then that will be a waste of your money.

How Can I Get a Free Trial and Avoid Getting Charged on My Own?

It is easier to forget to cancel your free trial and end up paying for a subscription service you don't enjoy. Here are a few ways you can cancel a free trial and avoid getting charged:

Cancel payment once you sign up for the free trial.If you cancel a free trial after signing up, you will still use it for the entire trial period without getting charged. It is one of the best and easiest ways to ensure you don't get billed.

However, remember that not all free trials operate in the same manner. Some services will stop your trial immediately you unsubscribe, e.g., Hulu and Apple Music.

Set a reminder a few days before your trial period ends.Don't wait until your free trial ends to cancel your subscription. That's because you may take forever to find instructions on how to unsubscribe, and this could push you past your deadline.

Another reason why you shouldn't wait till the last minute is that most services will still charge you if you cancel less than 24 hrs before your free trial period ends.

Go virtual.If you signed up with a free virtual credit card and forgot to cancel your subscription before your trial period ended, you can never get charged.

Why Should You Sign Up for Free Trials With DoNotPay?
