Why can't I log in to Spotify?

Spotify Legend



Let’s start with some basic troubleshooting, to try and help out here:


  • Check that you have an active internet connection.
  • Make sure you’re on the right login screen:
    - If you made your account with a username and password, enter those and tap LOG IN.
    - If you made your account with Facebook, tap LOG IN WITH FACEBOOK. 
    - You can also log in through the username field by using the email address linked to your Spotify account, and your correct password.
  • If you’re a Free user, you can only use Spotify abroad for 14 days at a time.
    - Reconnect to Spotify from the country you signed up in, or change your country settings.
  • Close and reopen the app.
  • Restart the device you’re using Spotify on.
  • Reinstall Spotify.

I signed up with Facebook but have deactivated my Facebook account

Create a Spotify password to access the account connected to your deactivated Facebook account: 

  1. Go to our password reset form
  2. Enter the email address registered to your Facebook account.
  3. Continue through the steps to create a password for the account.
  4. You can now log in by entering your Facebook email address and the new password in the default log in fields.

It's also possible to reach out to our Customer Support teams to update the email address registered with your account for you or help you transfer your music collection to another account if you prefer to create a new one.


I forgot my password!

To reset your password:

  1. Go to Spotify.com.
    • If you see your username in the upper-right corner, click there, then select LOG OUT.
    • If you see LOG IN in the upper-right corner, skip to the next step below.
  2. Head here to reset your password. We'll send you an email with a link to create a new password. 
    Note: If you don’t receive the reset password email, check your junk/spam folders too.

I’m getting a message that says my “password reset link is not valid, or already used”.

Try opening the password reset link in a private browsing or Incognito window.
