Family Plan sign-up

Family Plan sign-up

Hope you can help? I want to upgrade from Premium to Family to enable my 2 x daughters (aged 10 and 😎 to listen to their own music and creat their own playlists.


However, when I upgraded, I found out that I have to create email accounts for each one, and they're too young for email accounts, so the only way I can do that is to lie about their age for setting up the email accounts and lie about their age on Spotify


Surely the Family plan should make it easier for my whole family to enjoy Spotify, and enable me to set up their username/password access without having to create meaningless email accounts?

Please can you advise back if I'm missing something obvious in the set-up process for Family - I've downgraded back to premium for the moment as I can't work with the current set-up as I see it


Thanks in advance for your help

Worth noting is that some service providers block sub accounts so I would suggest to try if it works with Spotify.

 Can any Rock Stars or Spotify users help on this?

If you have an other email provider try to either search on google if it's possible to create sub accounts or ask their support.

Note that some service providers block sub accounts, I don't know if Spotify does.
