My Question or Issue

My wife had used Spotify on her iPad for years but suddenly, a couple weeks ago, the app was logged out and requested to log-in. She had forgotten the password so cliked on Recover password but it saysit can't send a password recovery email because  "that email is not registered". Wrote asking for help to Spotify support and got an automated reply saying she should ask the Spotify community. For curiosity she tried to sign-up with the same password and Spotify says that email is already registered!

Please help!!!

I understand you, @GordonScott but those account issues are better handled by the SpotifyCares staff. There's not much for me or other users to suggest you now, and most of the times the help comes quickly through FB and Twitter. 

 

I'm sure they'll help you :)

Hi @ecusersp, thanks for writing!

 

In this case I suggest you get in touch with the Spotify Cares staff - They'll be happy to help you further with this.

 

There are a few ways to contact them.

 

Another great way is to reach Spotify via Facebook support. Shoot them a message here: Spotify Cares.

 

Hope this is more helpful :)

I've been suffering the exact same problem. Login says the details are wrong, reset password says there's no active account associated with the email address, register says the same email address is alreaduy in use.

 

I've had to create a new account to get here to report the problem.

 

I've been messing about for over an hour just tring to find some way to report this, so at this moment I'm pretty fed-up.

To be honest, at this moment I've had enough fighting trying to contact
them.
Too frustrating by half.

I couldn't get to those previously, either, though I've now messaged them on the spotify.cares facebook page.  I'd previously tried the standard spotify page which offers no messaging them :-/

 

Thanks for your help. At least I may now have sent a mesdsage to them.

 

Unfortunately, this isn't the only problem, I also get no sound, which is likely a local problem as I can't point it to my sound card either. Noit a problem you this thread, though.

I'd already walked away from Spotify once after much frustration with the original account; now I'm starting over again :-(

No problem, @GordonScott.

 

Just create a new topic about this sound issue and I'll help you :)

Following your advice my wife contacted them by Twitter and they finally fixed the problem.

They said "unusual activity" and safety caused them to block the account but didn't explain what kind of "unusual activity" had happened. Also bad was there was no indication the account had been blocked, no email, nothing.

Thanks for your help anyway.
