How To Cancel Auto-Renewal On Airtel Data Subscription Plans.

In this article, I will show you how to cancel auto-renewal on airtel data subscription plans.

This airtel auto-renewal feature was added in order to make it easier for you to renew your expired data bundle plans automatically with no stress.

Equivalent to other network providers in Nigeria, Airtel will not forcefully activate you into the auto-renewal plan but will rather give you an option to select it.

But at times you can mistakenly activate the auto-renewal on the Airtel data subscription plans or simply forget to select the “One-Off” or “Stop My Data” when purchasing a new data subscription plan on the Airtel network.

That is why you must always remember to turn off the auto-renewal feature after you have successfully activated any data subscription plan of your choice so that Airtel will not tamper with your airtime when the data bundle expires.
