Have you decided it’s time to cancel your iTunes Match subscription? Maybe you’re moving to a new country and won’t be able to use the service anymore. Or maybe you just don’t want to pay for it anymore.

Whatever the reason, deauthorizing your Mac is easy to do and only takes a few minutes. Deauthorizing also helps if you’re having problems with iTunes Match, or if you want to sell or give away your computer.

Before you deauthorize your Mac, make sure that you have a backup of your music library. Once you deauthorize your Mac, you won’t be able to access any of your music that’s in iCloud, and you won’t be able to play any of the songs that were matched or uploaded from your computer.

1. Open iTunes and sign in with your Apple ID (the one that you use with iTunes Match).
2. From the menu bar at the top of your computer screen or at the top of the iTunes window, choose Account > View My Account.
3. On the Account Information page:
– To the right of Computer Authorizations, click Deauthorize All.
– Enter your password and click Deauthorize All again to confirm that you want to deauthorize all computers associated with this Apple ID.
