How do I close (delete) my Spotify Account?




Maybe you have a duplicate account, maybe you just need a break from Spotify or you want to start fresh with a new account? No hard feelings! 


In case you just want to stop paying, you can cancel your Premium plan and use Spotify free instead.


If you don't have Premium you can close your account permanently yourself. Just log in here and continue through the steps.


Keep the following things in mind: 

  • Your username can’t be used with Spotify again.
  • You won't have access to your playlists, followers, and everything saved in Your Library.
  • If you have the student discount, you won’t be able to apply it to another account until 12-months have elapsed since you signed up for it.

If you do decide to close your account, you have up until 7 days to change your mind. After that period, you won't be able to reactivate your account anymore.


Let's say you want any music transferred before deleting your account, in that case you can check out this Spotify Answer on how to do so 🙂
