Please note: "TED Membership" refers specifically to a subscription status joined by making a donation to TED.
TED Membership is not the same as a free TED.com account.
To learn how to delete your TED.com account, visit this article.
"TED Membership" is also different from a TED Conference Attendee membership pass.
To review conference registration policies, visit this page.
You can cancel auto-renewal of your TED Membership subscription through the
Membership Dashboard (login required).
If instead of the Membership Dashboard you encounter a message asking you to join TED Membership, it's likely that you're either logged into the wrong TED.com account, or your Membership subscription was never linked to a TED.com account. Please double-check your login, or reach out to our Member Support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Follow these steps:
1. click Settings in the menu on the left of the Membership Dashboard
2. click Cancel plan at the bottom of the Settings (see image below)
3. A window will open asking you to choose a reason you're leaving Membership (it helps us improve the benefits!)
4. Confirm cancellation
