Nowadays, there are so many streaming music providers in the market. To some music lovers, it is better than ever because more choices are equal to more music resources, which is more convenient and efficient to find what they need. To others, it may be bad news for that it is difficult to find out which streaming music server is most suitable for them. Although many streaming music companies offer a free trial to users, many people still prefer to use a fixed brand to listen to music. Thus, it is indispensable to know how to cancel those streaming music trials or subscriptions in time when you use them less and less.
In this article, we will tell you how to cancel Tidal subscription in brief, more essentially, to introduce a perfect way to save Tidal high-quality audio files in the local folder after cancellation.

Part 2. How to Preserve Tidal Music After Cancellation
There is a common feature of most streaming music services that is when you cancel their subscriptions, tracks you downloaded from them will be expired (no longer for online/ offline playback), for the reason of protecting music copyrights. The Tidal app acts in the same way. That means you'd better think twice before you start a music streaming subscription, for it is not an easy task to sync songs between different music platforms. In my experience, the best way to enjoy music is to download them into the local music library and convert them to universal formats like MP3 for forever keeping. In this way, you don't need to waste much time to compare the plan, the catalog, the price, etc among multiple choices of streaming music companies, or be busy in transferring songs to various platforms/players/devices.
If you have decided to cancel Tidal music subscription and prepare to download your favorite Tidal songs as local files, you can't miss to use AudFree Tidal Music Downloader, which is the leading figure in the field of Tidal music download and conversion, helping us to release the constraints from Tidal audios and convert them into a variety of common formats like MP3, FLAC, WAV, AAC, M4A, M4B and many others with lossless 1411 kps/16 bit quality saved.
