Change from Facebook login to an actual spotify account?

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.

Can someone tell me, if I can change the login from Facebook login to a normal password login?

I already have a Facebook login to Spotify but want to change that.

I don't want Spotify to be linked to Facebook.


If you created your Spotify account using your Facebook then no, your Spotify account is forever tied to that Facebook account. If you want a dedicated Spotify login, you need to make a new account (non-Facebook) using the "Create an account using my email address" link on the registration page.

You can then get in touch with customer services using the online contact form if you would like your playlists moved over to your new account and/or your Facebook account to be removed.

Your device username should be on your online profile or overview, if you have a Facebook created account it will be a string of 10 digits which is your actual Spotify username for your Spotify account. You need that username and your set device password to log in on partner devices since they don't support Facebook authentication.

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.

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.
