Change from Facebook login to an actual spotify account?

[ Edited ]

When I first setup spotify, I used the facebook login option. But now, I'd like to change this by creating an account for spotify (username and password) but don't know how.

Is there a way to do that by keeping my account as is, but creating new login details?

 

I don't mind keeping it connected to facebook (as I have deactivated all the sharing stuff) but I don't like this trend that everything are dependent of facebook accounts.

Thanks.

Spotify requires an active Facebook account, you can't use Spotify without going through Facebook.

 

This is because Sean Parker is an investor in both Spotify and Facebook and he wants music to be tied to people's Facebook accounts. His plan is that people can't deactivate their Facebook - otherwise they lose access to Spotify.

 

At this point everyone who wants to be on Facebook, is already on Facebook so they're now making deals with third party services like Spotify to try to get more users (one of these deals: you can't have Spotify without Facebook). This way they try to get closer to the billion user milestone.

This would be great! I deactivated my facebook to study for the bar. If spotify can't/wont accomodate, they will lose my subscription.

MalcolmDougall - You'd need to create a Device Password in order to use it on your Onkyo device. You can do that right here.

Re: Change from Facebook login to an actual spottily account?

I deactivated my facebook account but made a new one. How can I link the new account to my previous spotify account? 
Now, i can't even log in to spotify and I have a premium account. 
I'm in panic.
