How to turn off Grammarly for Windows or Grammarly for Mac

Note: This product offering is available to users who take part in beta testing. 

If you’d like to stop checking text on a specific website or application, click the Grammarly button that appears when you start typing and select the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the pop-up. 

You’ll then see the option to turn off Grammarly for a certain period of time or to turn off Grammarly forever.

If you’d like to turn Grammarly back on, you can do so by opening your settings and following these steps: 

  1. Right-click the Grammarly button that appears when you start typing
  2. Go to Settings > Blocked apps 
  3. Click Remove next to the application or a website where you’d like to check your text 

Note: If you are on Mac, you can also click the G icon in the toolbar at the top of your screen to access your settings. If you use Windows, click the G icon in the system tray.

If you are a member of a Grammarly Business or Grammarly@edu license and your account owner opted to block the use of Grammarly on a particular website or application, you’ll also see the Blocked by admin section. If you’d like to use Grammarly on the website that was blocked by your account owner, we suggest reaching out to your account owner directly.
