Unsubscribe a device

This feature will allow you to terminate a valid token. Please be advised it will be permanently lost.

With group administrator privileges, this feature is available through the backend GUI and through API. If you do not have access to this feature, please reach out to your local Sigfox Operator. 

Multiple contracts rule

Please be advised that a device unsubscribed from a multiple contract device type will be able to renew its subscription using a different valid contract from the list, unless its subscription automatic renewal is set to false at device-level or device-type-level.

GUI usage

From the device information page, a SET button is displayed next to the Unsubscription date field.

If the current date is set the device will automatically go off-contract upon confirmation.

If a future date is set, the token will be terminated (the device will switch off-contract) only if a message is received after this date. For periodically prepaid contracts, invoicing may occur if no message has been received before the renewal date.

Once a device is off-contract its subscription can be restarted using the Restart feature.

API usage

The dedicated single and bulk endpoints are publicly documented in the API documentation.

If a past date is set the device will automatically go off-contract upon API request.

If a future date is set, the token will be terminated (the device will switch off-contract) only if a message is received after this date. For periodically prepaid contracts, invoicing may occur if no message has been received before the renewal date.

Once a device is off-contract its subscription can be restarted using the Restart feature.

Force unsubscription

If you already used the Unsubscribe feature with a future date, please be advised that you can still force unsubscription by setting a past date with the dedicated API endpoint.
