I've been using Spotify for a long time now, recently this "time left" thingy appeared.
So, I decided It'd be very smart to create a new Spotify account, search for my Facebook on Spotify and listen to my so beloved playlist which I had on that account. I WAS WRONG!
Basically as said in the title I linked that "new" account to facebook (I am dumb) and noticed that my Starred playlist wasn't there, it was empty, all my songs I added were gone. I imedeately disconnected my facebook account from the new Spotify login I just created and tried to login with my Facebook credentials to my old Spotify account, however I couldn't. It was a completely new and fresh spotify account and there's nothing I can do about it.
As far as I remember when I logged in to the Spotify website a few times, in my profile there was a section Username with random numbers, is that true that I could connect to my old account with these numbers? How do I get them?
Solved! Go to Solution.
On Windows, if you bring up a command line window (type cmd into the start menu search box) then type:
and hit return, it will return a list of usernames which have logged into your client in the form username-user.
Once you have the username, you can look up the profile directly in Spotify by typing:
in the main Spotify search box and hitting return with USERNAME replaced with the username from above.
Also with customer support, did you reply to the automated email as in my previous post?
You won't be able to log into the account using that number as a username, since it will have been set up via Facebook so you need to login via Facebook but of course you can't since that account has become disconnected, so all you can really do without contacting Spotify support is copy the playlists.
Just on the off chance your starred playlist is public but not being displayed for some reason, try searching for:
with USERNAME replaced with your username of your old account.
If you do want Spotify support to recover the whole account for you, just reply to the automated email reply (even if its from no-reply) and an advisor will be more than happy to help.
