How to Deactivate your Deviantart Account Permanently?
What happens when you unsubscribe/cancel your DeviantArt Core Member subscription?
When you unsubscribe or cancel your Core member subscription, most features will remain in a dormant state for you to use again if you choose to renew your Core Membership. But editing any features that rely on a Core Membership may result in losing the features.
You will stop getting billed for the premium services on the next payment cycle. And be warned that all subscriptions are non-refundable and you will not get back your money after you have canceled your membership.
You will still be billed for the full subscription, but you will still have access to all premium features until the subscription lasts. This action will only prevent you from being charged from the next month and onwards if you do not wish to continue paying for your premium subscription.
If you do not wish to renew your subscription, you must cancel it at least 24 hours before the renewal date. This is also the policy of the stores of Apple and Google and you will have to comply with their rules if you bought your subscription using the official app. The same thing is valid if you have paid for the membership using another payment service like PayPal.

You can easily cancel your Core membership by switching off the automatic renewal at any time. But please remember that canceling your subscription before its renewal date does not entitle you to a refund, but simply prevents the subscription from automatically renewing every month. However, you can continue to use your canceled subscription until the day it expires.
