Hi,

 

how can I open a support ticket? I just bought a new smartphone (Fairphone 2, running Android 5). After installing facebook and Spotify, I can't log in to Spotify. I have a Premium Account associated with my Facebook account. Whenever I press "Login with Facebook" all i get is "A facebook error has occurred. Please try again." This error appears immediately, the app doesn't seem to check much. This error is persistent. I have reinstalled both Facebook and Spotify on my phone. I have logged in to Facebook. PLEASE HELP.

SOLVED: Spotify Login problems with Facebook account on mobile device:

 

If you can't login to your spotify app on your mobile device and created your spotify account with facebook:

So, Spotify crew didn't help me. I solved it: Browse to facebook.com, Settings (top right corner) > Security (left hand menu) > App Passwords. There, generate a password for "spotify". Use this password (and your Email address) to login to Spotify on your mobile app. This worked for me. Strange but true.

Thanks, Man!  I was at my wit's end, and the app is NOT at all intuitive for troubleshooting this stuff.  I appreciate you sharing your experience, and your wisdom.  You saved my weekend!

Thanks, had this problem for ages. There are solutions for accounts created by linking to Facebook but not when created directly by a Facebook linkup. Glad I found this thread!
