Please be aware that Google sometimes puts an authorization hold on Play Store subscriptions. You can read more about Google’s authorization policy here.

Google Play only allows 48 hours to request a refund through the app store. However, Hotspot Shield has a 45-day refund policy.

If you missed the 48-hour Google Play request window, please submit a request to our Help Center with your GPA order number and Google Play email address so that we can issue a refund for you.
