Unlinking and Uninstalling Zapier: A Step-by-Step Guide

Published on Feb 28th, 2024

De-integrating third-party services from your workflow can be a necessary step towards streamlining processes or transitioning to different solutions. If you're looking to remove Zapier, an automation tool that connects your favorite apps and services, you'll find that the process is straightforward but varies slightly depending on how you're using it.

Firstly, if you've installed Zapier as an app within another service (such as Slack or a project management tool), you'll usually find the option to disconnect it within that specific service's settings or integrations page. Look for 'Zapier' in the list of installed apps or integrations, and there should be an option to 'uninstall' or 'remove'. Confirm the action and Zapier's access will be revoked.

For users managing Zaps directly through the Zapier website:

  1. Login to your Zapier account. Navigate to the official Zapier website and log in with your credentials.

  2. Go to 'My Zaps'. Here you can see all the Zaps (automated workflows) you have created.

  3. Turn off any active Zaps. Before removing Zapier, ensure that you deactivate any active Zaps you no longer wish to run.

  1. Delete Zaps if desired. If you know you won't use specific Zaps again, you can delete them for a cleaner slate.

  2. Navigate to 'Connected Accounts'. This is where you’ll see a list of all the services that Zapier has access to.

  3. Disconnect unwanted accounts. Click on the account you wish to disconnect and select 'Disconnect' to remove Zapier's access to that service. Repeat this process for each account you wish to unlink.

  1. Check subscriptions. If you have a paid Zapier subscription and you're intending to stop using the service entirely, make sure to cancel your subscription to avoid further charges. This can typically be done under the 'Billing' section of your account settings.

If you are using Zapier via an organization and you are not the owner, you may need to request the owner or an admin to remove your access or follow the aforementioned steps, depending on your permissions.

Additionally, some users may have authorized Zapier to access their services through OAuth. If this is the case, you'll also need to visit each service's settings and look for a section related to security or authorized applications, where you should be able to revoke Zapier's access.

Lastly, remember to review the privacy policies and data retention practices of both Zapier and the linked services to understand how your data is managed post-deactivation.


By following these steps, you can successfully remove Zapier from your digital workflow. Whether you're disconnecting a few accounts or ending your usage of the service entirely, the process is a simple way to take control of your app integrations and automation.
