You can check up on your subscription and access your account history in your Account Settings. Your Account Settings will show you everything from your Scribd profile details to your subscription plan and payment information.

To find your Account Settings page on the Scribd website, click on your user icon at the top right, and select "Account Settings" from the menu that drops down.

If you’d like to update the email address associated with your account, change your display name or Scribd username, click on “Edit Profile”.

Want to change your password? No problem! Simply click “Change Password” to set a new password for your Scribd account. If you have forgotten your password, review this detailed FAQ for more information: “What do I do if I've lost or forgotten my password?”

You can also connect Scribd to your Facebook account on this page, or if you want to disconnect from Facebook we have a step-by-step guide here!

To customize the notifications you receive from us, head over to “Change Email Notifications".

For a quick overview of your recent reading activity, check out "View Reading History".

If you've uploaded documents to Scribd, you'll also see "Document Upload Settings" displayed in your Account Settings. For more information, see our article on document upload settings here.

In the Subscription & Payment Details section, you'll be able to see the type of subscription you have, your payment method and other important information like the status and date of next renewal.

Although we’d be sorry to see you leave, you have the option to end your paid subscription with us and delete your account at any time via your Account Settings page as well. We have a detailed guide on how to cancel your subscription with us here, and more information on deleting your Scribd account here. (Please note that you will not be able to fully delete your Scribd account if you still have subscription time remaining.) Our library is always growing, so if you decide to return, we’ll have plenty of new material for you to explore!

Still have questions? Please contact Scribd support - we'd be more than happy to help!
