  • Understand the differences: Review the detailed comparison of features between the Business, Growth, and free plans on the ScreenApp website. This will help you determine which plan best suits your current requirements.
  • Data and recordings: Your existing recordings and data will remain accessible, but keep in mind that some features available in your current plan might become restricted in the downgraded plan. Consider exporting any critical data beforehand if you anticipate needing it in an editable format later.

  1. Sign in: Access your ScreenApp account.
  2. Profile Icon: Click your profile icon in the top right corner.
  3. Billing & Subscription: Select "Billing & Subscription" from the dropdown menu.
