Having Spotify so tightly linked to a Facebook account is a pain my ass. All I want is to be able to permanently delete my Facebook account but still be able to use Spotify... How do I do this?

Hey! Welcome to the community
If you created your Spotify account using Facebook then there is no way to seperate your accounts. If you want to remove Facebook, you need to create a new account using your email address (non-Facebook) from the signup page.
If you have a subscription or playlists that you would like transfered from one account to another, just drop the customer services team an email using the online contact form.

I have the same problem. I've deleted a FB account and now I can't use my Spotify account anymore.
It's an option to create a new account, but here's the question: is it possible to the paid for services from one account to another- that is not connected to f**cking FB?

I have created another account with just an email address (by the way, you can't use the same email address you use with Facebook, which is **bleep**ing **bleep**). I have used the online contact form to request getting by subscription and playlist data transferred but they interpretted "transfer" some how as "delete". This is **bleep**ing ridiculous. Who's **bleep**ing idea was it to require Facebook to use Spotify? That **bleep**tard need to be fired.

I had the same problem. Except I hadn't seen this post before and I have already deleted my facebook account. I can no longer log in to my old spotify account because my facebook account is deleted. I've set up another premium account I now use, but I am still paying for premium on my old one. Can the services team delete this account? PLEASE? PLEASE?

Hey! Welcome to the community
You will need to get in touch with the customer services team directly using the online contact form and they will be able to get that done for you @imart12 .
If you get an automated email reply back directing you to the community or help pages, you need to reply directly to that email (even if its from no-reply) and one of the customer services agents will get back to you as soon as possible.

Hi, i've just deleted my facebook account, I had to create a new spotify account, it seems to have less options than before such as this small details as changing my profile picture, i've lost all of my playlists and favorite tracks and the funny thing is: "i'm still being me" but without facebook... but still me... but spotify takes me as if i were a different person, of course i had to use a different email address, which i consider unnecessary but it's weird how "facebook dependant" the service is.
