I recently found out that my credit card details are saved with Adobe, without my permission. I had purchased adobe Photoshop.
I am currently subscribed to an annual plan and will not be renewing the license, so saving the card doesn't make sense.
Please let me know , how can I do it.
Chances are that somewhere in the agreement you accepted when you took the subscription you also agreed to allow them the use of your credit card information. My guess is that you won't be able to change any of it without contacting support since they need some means of being able to charge you should you decide to drop the plan early.

Thanks for the info.
But the customercare said they cannot remove the card. I have finished paying for an annual plan already. Then why keep the details.
Your credit card information is absolutely safe with Adobe, however, there is no option to remove your credit card details.
You can anytime update your payment method but not remove it.
I also really really hate the idea (after so many hacked companies have made it certain that a customer's credit card information is not "absolutely" safe) that Adobe is keeping my credit card details. This makes me heavily dislike Adobe's policies. We may not be able to remove our credit card details as yet, but believe me, the company's competitors will have an open door to become "not Adobe". At some point, this policy will bite your company in the butt. I'm already researching other options.
I'm just commenting so I can find the thread later where an Adobe employee said "Your credit card information is absolutely safe with Adobe" .. I'm sure the lawyer will have a field day with that.
Also .. I don't blame you for not trusting Adobe with your info lately. I've been trying for DAYS to reach the accounts page of the website on three different browsers and it's giving DNS errors : https://accounts.adobe.com
This is absolutley terrible and still seems to be the case.
you guys cant even change a simple date i wanted my payment date changed and you people cant even do that no wonder everyone leaving adobe for other editing software
I agree. Adobe are ruthless with their techniques for keeping customers and taking their money.
They should be more ruthless with their software actually working and getting rid of the many and growing number of shortcomings. I'd happily keep paying if I liked their software enough but alas I do not.
ProDesignTools Firstly that link logs me out. Secondly do I need to read between the lines of your post? i.e you said "may" does this mean possibly not? and "used previously but no longer do" does this mean expired?
I dont want to spend another half an hour of my time looking for a hidden link that will not answer my question.
It means that if you have a card on file that is inactive (i.e., not being used for any current/active subscription), then you should be able to confirm that it's removed from your account or you can submit a request to Adobe for same, via that page.
Haven't tried this personally, but under GDPR which came into effect last month, companies now need to have a way to allow customers (esp. in EU) to delete personal information.
What he meant was, if you have another card aside from the one with Adobe, then you can update your info there. A card that you no longer used. He said "may" because it might not work or active anymore. But if you do have another card that you seldom use, you have that option. But what I did was, I called my credit card company to report that my card was lost.
CONTACT CREDIT CARD COMPANY AND REPORT ILLEGAL TAKING OF YOUR CREDIT CARD BY ADOBE. I HAVE OT DO THE SAME THING. Adobe loses its right to use of your credit card.
I didn't remove my credit card from the account, but now that I have a prepaid subscription, and I do not have need for the Photography plan anymore, the credit card information formerly stored with Adobe are no more available on the Adobe site.
CHAT also hung up on me and refused to remove my cards or speak to me.
One small remark: the last chat I had with an Adobe staff employee, I first said hello.
So if we ask pretty please they'll fix this, otherwise not?
Today Adobe rep responded to my request to remove my credit card information, his reply:
"I have successfully raised a request to delete the payment details."
I will of course check later to confirm. Still, I am left with a negative impression of Adobe.
I ran into the same problem but I HAVE A REAL SOLUTION.
There is still no way to delete the card information from your own account end. However, I chatted with an Adobe rep and I was very friendly and specific about what I wanted: "I have successfully dadded a new card ending in XXXX and now I would like to remove the old card which ends in YYYY. Can you please remove that card for me."
It took them 5 minutes and they said it was done. I confirmed and it was gone.
I just changed the date to an invalid date so that they can't use it
Wrong, this does not work. It works for others but not this POS company. They will run the card when you click save and if it does not go through you will NOT be able to save the card or move past that screen. If you close the box, the original card is still there and they will still continue on with their shady criminal enterprise.
WRONG, IT DOES WORK I HAVE RECENTLY DONE IT. And the new date has been accepted, Adobe even have contacted me telling me my card is about to expire.
Please be sure of the facts before telling someone they are wrong.
All of your date changing discussion is irrelevant. Just call Adobe. I called them and changed my card and deleted the old one. It took 5 minutes. This issue over deleting old cards is no longer an issue. Period.
