How do I request a refund?

Generally, all charges for in-app purchases are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. If requested within 48-hours of the transaction date, you may be able to get a refund depending on the details of the purchase.  

If you’d like a refund for a Duolingo Plus subscription, please be sure to cancel your subscription prior to your refund request (instructions here). 

Once cancelled, you can follow the below steps to request a refund:

Google Play

If you subscribed to Duolingo Plus using your Google Play Store account, follow the steps below:

  1. Open a web browser (like Chrome or Safari) on your computer, tablet, or phone.
  2. Copy and paste it into the address bar of the web browser.
  3. Make sure this is in a web browser and not the Google Play Store app. You can't request a refund in the Google Play Store app.

  7. You will see a message saying "thank you for sharing your concerns." Later you will receive an email about your refund.
