Problems logging in

We know it’s annoying when you can’t log in and access your music. So let’s start off with some basic troubleshooting:

  • Check that you have an active internet connection.
  • Make sure you’re on the right login screen:
    If you made your account with Facebook, tap LOG IN WITH FACEBOOK.
    If you made your account with a username and password, enter those and tap LOG IN.
  • If you’re a Free user, remember you can only use Spotify abroad for 14 days at a time. Please reconnect to Spotify from the country you signed up in, or change your country setting.
  • Close and reopen the app.
  • Restart the device you’re using Spotify on.
  • Reinstall Spotify.
  • Check @SpotifyStatus for any current issues.

I signed up with Facebook but have deactivated my Facebook account

If you’ve deactivated your Facebook account, you won’t be able to login. You need to either reactivate Facebook or create a new Spotify account. If you create a new account, you can contact us and we’ll move your playlists, saved music, followers, and account information over.

I forgot my password!

If you forgot your password, you can reset it:

  1. Go to
    • If you see your username in the upper-right corner, click there, then select LOG OUT.
    • If you see LOG IN in the upper-right corner, just go to the next step below.
  2. Then go here to reset your password. We will then send you an email with a link to create a new password. 

Note: If you don’t receive the reset password email, check your junk/spam filters.

Note: If you can’t access the email address we’re sending the reset to, contact us so we can change the email address for the account.

I’m getting a message that says my “password reset link is not valid, or already used”.

Try opening the password reset link in a private browsing or Incognito window. If the problem persists, contact us
