How can I keep Facebook deactivated?

[ Edited ]

Okay, so I want to keep my facebook deactivated, but when I log into Spotify it reactivates my Facebook. Is there a way to keep Facebook deactivated and use spotify?

 

I don't mind even linking my account with a new facebook account that has no friends added. I just want my current Facebook with all my friends to be deactived for the time being.

 

Thanks

EDIT: NO LONGER TRUE. You can now sign up without Facebook. Click "Create an account using my email address" at the bottom of the signup page.

 

No. You must have an active Facebook account to use Spotify.

Yes I know, but I want to deactive the facebook account that is tied up with my spotify account. Can't I link it with a different facebook account that I don't mind being active?

 

Or create a new Spotify account and switch over all my starred tracks/playlists?

You don't have a Spotify account. Your Facebook account IS your Spotify account so you can't delink. Only old users who registered before September 22nd 2011 have Spotify accounts that are not tied to Facebook.

 

If you want to use a fake Facebook for a while, you can subscribe to your main account's playlists to listen to them. If you want to permanently switch to your fake Facebook, you can copy/paste playlist content like it was text, using Ctrl+C (copy) and Ctrl+V (paste).

 

To copy a playlist, do this:

- Go to a playlist on your main account and press Ctrl+A to select everything. Then press Ctrl+C to copy.

- Now, log into your fake Facebook and create an empty playlist. Press Ctrl+V to paste.

If you mean that don't share music/Playlists to facebook then go onto Edit/Preferences then uncheck the "Show what I listen to on Facebook" But if you mean like de-link you can't as all new accounts have to be with facebook as that is the new login system.

 

Also what many users do is have a fake facebook account, Like the above person said, Just sign up for a new facebook account but use it as a fake one for Spotify.

If I have to keep deactivating my old Facebook account I will be canceling this service. I dont like facebook, if you must link it with some social network either have it run through Twitter or Google+.

Re: How can I keep Facebook deactivated?

This is an old thread and my answers aren't true anymore. Spotify has made a non-Facebook signup option available since 30 August 2012.

 

If you signed up with a Facebook account, you have to create a new account. You can do so by logging out of the Spotify website, clicking Sign up at the top right and choosing "Create an account using my email address".

Re: How can I keep Facebook deactivated?

Hello all.  I just deactivated (?removed) my Facebook account from my Spotify account and now I have lost all of my playlists, radio, etc.  The system seems to think I have a free account when in fact I have been a paying customer for months.  This was not my intention whey I deactivated Facebook.  Please tell me I have not lost everything I've worked on in Spotify.

Re: How can I keep Facebook deactivated?

That sounds like you logged in using Facebook after disconnecting so it sees you as a new user when you logged back in.

 

Make sure you are using a Spotify account, not a Facebook account when you log in. That means you do not type an email in the username field, you type your spotify username there instead.

Re: How can I keep Facebook deactivated?

So are you saying you cannot change your log in details from a facebook account to a regular email?  If this is the case then I am cancelling my subscription and want my last payment back for this month.  

 

Surely you can edit details somewhere like if you get a new email address.
