Switching from a SimpleLogin subscription to Proton Unlimited
On July 2022, SimpleLogin announced the “Login with Proton” feature, allowing you to quickly create a new SimpleLogin account or to connect your existing SimpleLogin account using Proton SSO.
If you have a Proton Unlimited, Business, or Visionary (legacy) subscription, you can benefit from all SimpleLogin premium features for free as it is now included in your Proton plan.
That may result in 2 subscriptions if you already had a SimpleLogin subscription.
This article helps you to 1) connect your Proton and SimpleLogin account and 2) Cancel your current SimpleLogin subscription to avoid being charged again during the renewal.
Before starting, make sure you have:
a) an active Proton Unlimited, Proton for Business, or Proton Visionary (legacy) plan.
b) an active, renewable SimpleLogin subscription. This includes subscriptions with credit card or PayPal (via our partner Paddle) or via Apple in-app purchase. Subscriptions with cryptocurrency (via Coinbase) or via coupon codes aren’t concerned.
1. Connect your Proton to your SimpleLogin account
- Log in to your SimpleLogin account and go to Settings > Connect with Proton
- Click Link account
This will open a window to connect to your Proton account. Once connected, you will be automatically redirected to SimpleLogin.
After that, you should see “Premium subscription managed by Proton” at the top of the Settings page. Please note that the connection can sometimes take up to several minutes.
For more details about the Proton/SimpleLogin integration, please refer to Proton’s documentation on How to connect an existing SimpleLogin account to a Proton Account.
2. Cancel your old SimpleLogin subscription
Once you have connected your Proton account with a Proton Unlimited, Proton for Business, or Proton Visionary (legacy) plan, you may proceed and cancel your current SimpleLogin subscription.
Please note that SimpleLogin premium benefits are active as long as your Proton subscription is active. If your Proton subscription is canceled or expired, SimpleLogin premium benefits will cease immediately.
- Connect to your SimpleLogin account
