- Click on the settings icon that lies towards the top right corner of the page and select “Settings” from the dropdown menu that appears.
- In the settings page, click on Change/Cancel Membership.
- Since you are accessing the sensitive part Match will ask you to reenter your password. Type the password and then click on Continue Cancellation.
