[Tutorial] How to Disconnect Spotify from Facebook

Hey there,

To disconnect your Spotify account from Facebook:

  1. Open the Spotify desktop app.
  2. In the top-right corner, click the dropdown menu arrow, then Settings.
  3. Under Social, click DISCONNECT FROM FACEBOOK.

Note: It’s not possible to complete these steps on mobile.

 

If you’re not seeing this option, it means you created your account with Facebook, so it’s not possible to disconnect. If this is the case, check out your next steps at this support article.

 

I hope this helps!

There's a small step in your guide that could be easier.

 

You can drag a subscribed playlist to the "New Playlist" button which will instantly copy the playlist and make it owned by you.

So, how long are we expected to wait before there is an official way to disconnect my premium spotify account from my old facebook account that I wish to delete? I appreciate this unofficial method, but I would feel more comfortable with official steps from the Spotify team.

Hey :) 

 

Did you read step 1? 

If you created your account using Facebook, you won't have the disconnect from Facebook option, since your account is tied to Facebook. In that case you will need a new account as described in the tutorial.

Useful instructions but I could not use my email address to create a new Spotify account. I decided not to use Spotify until the company changes its mind on this limitation.

Sometimes it can take a little while for the data to disappear from the Spotify servers. What is your spotify username?
