I didn't understand.... what should I do? I want to log out from facebook on my spotify!?
If depends on how you created your account.
If you created your account using your email address and therefore have a dedicated Spotify username and password then you can disconnect from Facebook by going to Edit > Preferences > Social Network > Disconnect from Facebook in the desktop client.
If you created your account using you Facebook account and therefore log in using your Facebook email address and password then there is no way to disconnect your account from Facebook. You can select not to share what you are listening to on Facebook from the Preferences menu, however, if you want to completely disconnect then you will need to make a new account. You can do that from the signup page and then get in touch with the customer services team using the online contact form and ask them to move your playlists and subscriptions over to your new account for you.
I am having a similar issue - i want to disconnect from my fb account, but i have not been able to find the social network setting in Spotify however.... when i click the edit option in my tool bar, i do see Preferences, i click that and it take me to the spotify Activity Sharing page... I am using windows 8, if that makes a difference. Your assistance would be apreciated. thank you.
@temoi1 - If your account was created via Facebook, there is no way to disconnect it I'm afraid (which is why the option is missing). You can however migrate to a new account. I put together a tutorial here:
I have a similar issue, and I did follow your advice going through Edit>Preferences and I hit the "disconnect from facebook" button. It now shows "connect to facebook", and it appears that I have successfully logged out from facebook. However, in my spotify client, my account name still shows my facebook client - not my Spotify client, which I was expecting. Any idea?
Log out of Spotify and then close the program. Browse to the cache. The default location should be C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Local\Spotify\Storage and delete everything inside the folder. Delete the folder C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Local\Spotify\Users\<random numbers-user>\ There is a folder for each profile that has been logged into Spotify on that computer account.
