Deactivate and Cancel Jetpack Subscription Module for WordPress

So you’ve decided to stop using the Jetpack subscriptions module for WordPress, like many others, but you want to actually deactivate it and can’t find the button.

You’ve Google’d it, but all the posts tell you to look for a button that doesn’t exist anymore, or they just aren’t helpful.

Don’t worry – you’re not crazy, or blind… as of right now (October 2013), you have to do the following to deactivate WordPress JetPack Subscriptions.

Open the Jetpack screen.

 

Locate the Subscriptions module. There are two buttons, “Learn More” and “Configure”. Click on “Learn More”

 

Notice that the “Configure” button now changes to “Deactivate”. THATS THE ONE! Click it to deactivate the plugin/module.

We think it’s pretty poor user experience design, but that’s just us. At least change the button color and/or size if you’re going to do something like that!

Hope this helps anyone out there looking to turn off Jetpack!
