Can't log in due to error code 3. anyone have a fix yet?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Worked for me too. Thanks
This worked for me when I got error code 3. I did not use my email, but just the username. Instead of email@example.com, I just typed in username. Hopefully this works for others. (Note, this was for the app, not spotify.com)
yeas!!! this work for me!! just replaced my email with my username of the app!!!
Its still not working with my username I even changed my password and made a new account
Worked for me! Thanks!!
wow! it was saying username too! hahaha i was typing in my email lol thank you!
Thank you for suggesting using username instead of firstname.lastname@example.org. I finally got logged on.
Thank you. your solution worked fine for me. removed the @gmail.com and it logged in just fine
Yup, just your username, no email address fixes the error!
Just username, no email address gets you in
So I figured out how to fix mine, but I'm not sure if it will work for others. Basically what I did was go to my email that my account was registered under and I searched for an old reset password email (thankfully I had one from like 2 days before) and I just reset my password with the link and now it works fine! I hope this helps!
that worked for me, thanks
dont type the email, just the user name and ur password!!
Worked for me too !
have the same problem on my mac with newest OS Version El Capitan and current spotify version.. (Error Code: 3 , wrong user name or password)
doesn´t work in spotify app on my mac.. tried to log in with user, without @gmail.com and with complete email address, but nothing works..
not good for the image of spotify ;-( Have also performed a password reset couple of times..
Anyone a solution/ idea how to solve this issue ?
Use whatever username you chose/made when you created your account for example
say my email was email@example.com that does not mean your username will neccesarily be spotifymusic
