Throttle Goes Free!

Throttle's big splash in January was dramatic: it is one of the rare few launches to amass over 1,000 votes on Product Hunt, and was featured in an interview with Robert Scoble. The crowd made it clear to us: they want Throttle.

So, as of today, we've made Throttle free. Now everyone can have access to world-class protection for their email address, their inbox, and their time.

As a part of these pricing changes, we've upgraded all current customers to the new Throttle Pro, at no extra cost. Besides unlimited usage of the features you've already had, Throttle Pro brings you advanced features can power up your productivity. (If you would like to downgrade to the new free tier, you can do so in the 'Settings' tab. By default it will take effect at the end of your billing period. For annual subscribers, if you would like a pro-rated refund for months you won't use, just send us an email.)

Share the good news with your friends! They too can now get Throttle for free:

May be an old topic, but is there a way to pay monthly instead of annually?  I'm not quite sure if I want to bite the bullet on a full year without trying pro.

So what's the new pricing structure for Pro?

For previous subscribers of Throttle Basic, they're now on Throttle Pro at their same pricing structure.

New customers will pay $3.99 per month billed annually. This may change as we pinpoint the right price, but any changes will never affect current customers.

Great news! THanks!!

Is the upgrade to Throttle Pro for previous customers in the process of being completed? I just checked my account and it still gives me the option to upgrade for a monthly fee.

That's odd - if you previously paid for Basic, you should now be on Pro. (Also, to anyone that previously had a free account, you should now be on Basic)

If this isn't the case, shoot us an email to and we'll get it figured out!
