[Facebook] Remove Facebook from a Facebook created Account

A lot of people who initially made their account with Facebook wish to deactivate their Facebook accounts, but if they do so they will also loose access and all data they got over the years of their Spotify account, since it was created using their Facebook details. 

 

There should be an easy way to change your Spotify account, from a Spotify account which is tied to Facebook, to a Spotify (email only) account without deleting and creating a new Account, and especially without losing your listening history and suggestions - which is why a lot of people even use Spotify.

From what I've seen, I can create an username/password based logon despite having created the account with facebook.

I requested a password reset. It emailed me one, I assume based on the email associated with my facebook account.

But it still seems to pulling my username and image from facebook, and still appears to linked to my facebook account in some way.

I'm going forward with deactivating my facebook account.

How can you not, especially with people increasingly wanting off of facebook, not have a way to transition an account from a facebook linked account to an email/password based one without deleting one account to replace it with a whole new account.

This feature should exist, and should be simple enough to use (and implement).
