Unlinking your Patreon account from your GitHub Sponsors profile

You can disconnect your Patreon account from your GitHub Sponsors profile to stop receiving new sponsorships through Patreon.

Note: Unlinking your Patreon account from your GitHub Sponsors profile will prevent new sponsors from sponsoring you through Patreon, but it will not cancel existing sponsorships through Patreon. Instead, they will appear as cancelled on GitHub.com and your sponsors will have to cancel those sponsorships themselves on Patreon. For more information, see How do I cancel? in the Patreon documentation.
