Cancel Instant Checkmate In Three Quick Steps!

If you’re like millions of Americans, you subscribed to Instant Checkmate to look up people in your life. Maybe you wanted to locate relatives who are scattered across the country. Or you wanted to find out if anyone you know has a criminal record. Or perhaps you wanted to see if any sex offenders live in your neighborhood. Or maybe you just wanted to look people up for fun!

But now you want to end your membership. Maybe you’ve found what you needed, and you’ve exhausted your list of people to search. Whatever the reason for wanting to end your subscription, Instant Checkmate makes it easy to cancel—no questions asked.

Here’s what you do, in three easy steps.

1. Gather two pieces of information:

  • Your first and last name.
  • Your Instant Checkmate username (this is the email used to sign up for an account).

2. Choose how you want to cancel. You can cancel by phone, by email, or on this page.

  • To cancel by phone:

    Call Instant Checkmate’s customer service line at 1-800-222-8985. A friendly member care rep will walk you through a short and simple cancellation process.

    If you’re like most people, you don’t have time to call during regular business hours. To make it easier for you, Instant Checkmate keeps our lines open 24-7. That way, you can talk to a real person— at a time that works for you.

  • To cancel on this page:

    If you want to cancel right away, you can do so on this page. At the top right of this page, you’ll see the “Cancellation Form.” Fill out the information (comments are optional), then click “Cancel My Subscription.” Instant Checkmate’s member care team will process your request as soon as we receive it. Then, within 24-48 hours, we’ll cancel your account.

    Once your membership has been canceled, you’ll receive a confirmation email. So make sure you check your email inbox for a confirmation!

  • To cancel by email:

    If you prefer to cancel by email, send an email to this address:

    In your email, include the two pieces of information mentioned in the first step: your first and last name, and the email address you used to create your Instant Checkmate account.

    Within 24 hours of your email submission, a member of Instant Checkmate’s member care team will complete your cancellation.

3. Verify your Instant Checkmate charges:

  • When Instant Checkmate charges your credit card each month, the charges appear as CHKMATE*INSTANTCHECKMA on your credit card statement.

In case you don’t see this charge on your bill, look below for other possible variations:

  • chkmate*instantcheckma
  • chkmate*instant checkmate
  • chkmate*instantcheckmate
  • chkmate*instantche
  • checkmate*instant checkmate
  • chkmate*instant
  • chkmate*instantcheckmat
  • chkmate*phoneservices
  • chkmate*instantcheck
  • chkmate*instant checkmate
  • checkmate*instant

For whatever reason you’ve decided to end your Instant Checkmate subscription, you’re just minutes away from canceling. Hopefully this how-to helps you cancel as soon as possible!
