The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is looking into Adobe’s subscription cancellation practices, the software giant has revealed.

Since June 2022, Adobe has been cooperating with the FTC staff in response to a “Civil Investigative Demand seeking information regarding our disclosure and subscription cancellation practices relative to the Restore Online Shoppers’ Confidence Act”.

“In November 2023, the FTC staff asserted that they had the authority to enter into consent negotiations to determine if a settlement regarding their investigation of these issues could be reached,” Adobe said in a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Adobe said that “We believe our practices comply with the law and are currently engaging in discussion with FTC staff”.
