No. Spotify requires a Facebook account. You can't create a new account without Facebook either.

Re: Remove facebook account link

I registered before facebook was a requirement (thank god!). I just got an oportunity to get Spotify Premium free for a year and registered that today  to my account. I then discover that when my friends search for me on Spotify they find my account but it shows up with my mothers name AND her picture!! This must be because she tried it a few days a while ago. I gues she connected it with her facebook. Now it seems that I´m stuck with that because I can´t find any way to change it. I don´t use FB and don´t want to, it sucks!! I have disabled every facebook sharing-option that I can and it does look ok in my own Spotify client. It´s my friends that see the wrong name and picture.

Why can´t the connection between FB and Spotify be optional??? Who made that deal?? I´m very happy with Spotify in every other way. This idiotic FB-connection is the only reason that I´m even looking for other music alternatives.

Can you please PLEASE help me get rid of my mothers name on my account?!

Re: Remove facebook account link

As you have an old Spotify account, make sure you are logged into Spotify with your Spotify username and password and not your daughters FB details, then in the Preferences page there should be a Disconnect From Facebook button near the bottom.

Hopefully that does it for you.
