Is there a way to change my Spotify login from using Facebook to using just email and password?

    I had to contact Spotify customer support to unlink it from Facebook.

You can do so by disconnecting from Facebook. The following instruction shows how to do this:

Disconnect from Facebook.

Since you have a dedicated Spotify account, disconnecting from Facebook is easy.

In the desktop client:

Windows - Go to Edit > Preferences > Social Network > Disconnect from Facebook.

Mac - Go to Spotify > Preferences > Social Network > Disconnect from Facebook. Once you have done that, your Spotify account is no longer linked to Facebook, you need not continue any of the steps below.

You may find due to data caching in the client, that you still see Facebook information (such as the People list) hanging around, a quick clean reinstallation of the application should fix that for you.

If you can't see the option to connect/disconnect, then you are logged into a Spotify account created with Facebook not a dedicated Spotify one.


  • This answer only works to disconnect Facebook if you signed up to spotify with your email address and then linked it to your Facebook as a secondary step. The question is actually about 'logging in' to Spotify using Facebook, which means you signed up with Facebook credentials.

If you signed up to Spotify with Facebook credentials and use your Facebook ID/password to log in to Spotify, then there is no simple way to convert the account.

You need to contact Spotify support.

Only people who signed up to Spotify with their email account and then added Facebook connection as a secondary step can disconnect it in settings.
