Deleting Facebook account without losing Spotify account

I am planning on deleting my Facebook account. However, I created my Spotify account with my Facebook account. Is there any possibility on deleting my Facebook account (hence, remove the connection with Spotify) without losing all my music and playlists I saved for years?

Hey @Jolien05 and welcome to the Community! :)

There's a great Spotify Answer that will walk you through a few options on how to disconnect from Facebook and gives more details on functionality afterwards.
I hope this is helpful and have a great day! :)

Thanks for your reply. I have read that Spotify Answer. However, I dont get to see that option because I created my Spotify account with my Facebook account. So I am afraid I will lose all my saved music but I hope there is a solution..!

Hi again @Jolien05 !

In this case, the options they listed would apply if you aren't seeing that you can disconnect through the app. Option #1 is the best choice as your library should still be in tact once you disconnect, but you will see your user as only numbers going forward.
Option #2 will clear out all your recommendations and listening history and you would need to copy over your playlists to the new account.
I've copied the most relevant info below for the steps and hope this was helpful!

 

Don’t see this option?

If you don't see this option it's either because your Facebook isn't connected to that account, but more likely that you created your Spotify account with Facebook at the beginning. If that's the case you have 3 options: 

 

1. Deactivate your Facebook but continue to log into Spotify with the email and password you used for Facebook 
2. Create a new Spotify account 
3. Reactivate your Facebook
 
Steps for option 1. 
Please note your displayed Spotify username will be a string of numbers instead of your display name. 
  • Deactivate your Facebook
  • Reset your password by entering the email address that was registered on your Facebook account
  • Open the Spotify app
  • Enter the email address and the new password (you cannot select the Log in with Facebook option any longer). 
  • You can continue to use the app as normal without a Facebook account. 
 
Steps for option 2. 
As your listening history will be lost we do not recommend this option. Your Spotify Discover Weekly, Release Radar etc will start from scratch. 
 
  • If your current account is on a Premium subscription, cancel it (you can resubscribe on your new account).
    Note: If you have the student discount, you won’t be able to apply it to your new account until the 12 months have elapsed since you signed up for it.
  • Go to your account page and click SIGN OUT EVERYWHERE at the bottom.
  • Create your new account.
    Note: It’s not possible to have two accounts with same email address. If you’d like to keep the email address associated with your old account, you first need to close the old account.
  • Any saved music and playlists will still be on your old account, but you can save / create them again on your new account with these steps.

 

Option 3

If you reactivate the Facebook account you used to sign up with Spotify you can also continue to use the app as normal.
