Has Spotify been your go-to music app for quite some time, and now unexpectedly it is not allowing you to log into your account, even with your accurate login credentials?
Is your Spotify linked to a social media account that you have perhaps changed the username or password for?
If you are asking yourself, ‘What do I do if I can’t log into my Spotify account’, there are a couple of methods you can attempt to get your Spotify to permit you to login again.
We have produced this uncomplicated guide just for you, so you can get back to being logged into your Spotify account, and carry on listening to all your favorite playlists.
How do I log back into my Spotify account
Are your username and password correct, but you are still unable to log into your account?
Let’s take a look at the methods that will help you log back into your account.
Method 1. Check your login page
The first thing to check is that you are making use of the correct login page. If you initially created your account with your Facebook or Apple details, you will need to ensure you are selecting ‘Login with Facebook’ or ‘Login with Apple’, just like if you created your account independently (with an email or phone number), you would click on ‘Login’
Note, if you used your Facebook details to log in to Spotify, and you have now deactivated your account, you will need to reset your password on Spotify to be able to get access to your account.
Method 2. Update your country of origin
if you have moved to a different country, you may still need to update your country settings on the ‘Profile Page’ on Spotify which you can do in a few easy steps;
Step 1. Log into your Spotify account
Step 2. Under ‘Profile’ go into ‘Account Overview’
Step 3. Select ‘Edit Profile’
Step 4. Update your ‘Country of Region’
It is not vital that you update your country to where you have moved to, however, if you leave it to the original setting, this may cause further login issues down the line.
Method 3. Update your app
If you are still using the former Spotify app when there is a newer version available, you may need to update this.
Updating the app to its newest version will get rid of any bugs that may have ended up in the software of the app, causing login issues on your app.
Go onto your app store and once you have found the Spotify app, check to see if you can select ‘Update’.
Method 4. Empty your cache files
Clearing the cache files for Spotify will erase any built-up data that may be interfering with your Spotify logging in properly
Step 1. On your mobile, go into ‘Settings’
Step 2. Select on ‘Apps’ followed by ‘All Apps’
Step 3. Find and select Spotify
Step 4. Press ‘Storage’
Step 5. Select ‘Clear Cache’
Step 1. Go onto your Spotify app
Step 2. Click on the ‘Settings’ picture in the top right-hand corner
Step 3. Select ‘Storage’
Step 4. Press ‘Delete Cache’ and again to confirm the action

Before you uninstall the app, complete method 4 first and then proceed;
Step 1. Go into ‘Settings’
Step 2. Select ‘Apps’
Step 3. Find Spotify and click on it
Step 4. Press ‘Uninstall’
Once the uninstallation has been completed, restart your phone to ensure all data has been removed from your device.
Step 1. Find Spotify on your iPhone
Step 2. Press down on the app, and opt for ‘Remove App’
Step 3. Confirm this action
Step 1. Go into ‘Settings’
Step 2. Click on ‘General’
Step 3. Select ‘iPhone Storage’
Step 4. Find and press ‘Spotify’
Step 5. Select ‘Offload App’ and confirm
Switch your phone off and on again.

Why can’t I put my email on Spotify
You won’t be able to put your email onto your Spotify account if you have initially created your account using your Facebook details, so if you are asking the question; ‘Can I change my Spotify from Facebook to email’, the answer is YES.
It can be changed with two different methods;
Step 1. Get onto the desktop version of Spotify
Step 2. Go into ‘Settings’
Step 3. Find the ‘Social’ options
Step 4. Here you can remove your Facebook account, and input an email address.
Step 1. Reset your password. (You will input the email address you use for Facebook)
Step 2. Click on the link you will receive to update your password and follow the instructions
Step 3. Log into your Facebook and get rid of Spotify as an app connected to your account
You should now be able to access Spotify with an email.
What do you do if you don’t know your email on Spotify
Forgotten passwords and email addresses are something of the norm these days due to the majority of apps requiring different credentials for security reasons.
Spotify allows you to enter your email credentials more than once until you have found the correct one.
Once you have entered the correct one, you will be sent an email guiding you to reset your details.
Note, you can also log in with your phone number, Facebook or Apple.
With Spotify being the largest streaming service used for music (iTunes is not far behind), one would assume they’ve ensured all their potential glitches and malfunctions have been ironed out.
We all know that will never be the case with any application, so we hope this guide has assisted you in being able to log back into your Spotify account without having to contact Spotify support.
