How do I close my Spotify Account?

Spotify Legend




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! 


Here's how to close your Spotify account:

  1. Log in here.
    Note: Be sure to cancel any subscriptions first.
  2. Select Account.
  3. Select I want to close my account.
  4. 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.

You can cancel your subscription without closing your account. This way, you can still listen to Spotify for free and keep all of the above.


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 🙂
