Now, email isn’t the only way to sign in with Spotify. If you’re using Facebook to log in, Spotify requires a little bit of extra work. That is to say, you will need to switch to Spotify, reset your password to set a separate password from Facebook, then log in. Then, you will need to follow the correct steps on Facebook to disconnect the two accounts. You will need to do all of this before following this guide If you have linked those two accounts.

However, once completed, this guide can be followed from any device with a web browser, as with many of our walkthroughs. And the process itself is, as noted above, actually very simple.

  1. On a computer, tablet or smartphone, open your favorite web browser. For this guide we will be using Google Chrome on an Android device. But the user interface will be nearly identical on all platforms
  2. Using the search bar or URL at the top of the page, go to Spotify.com
  3. Log into Spotify, if you haven’t already, using the gear icon at the top right of the UI, as shown in our images below. On desktop platforms, Spotify hides it behind the “Profile” button or shown as a login option, actually in the same place
  4. Once logged in, you will need to go back to the gear icon. Or, still in the full version of the web browser, on a desktop or laptop computer, there is no gear icon at the top right of the user interface. In its place, in exactly the same spot, there is a drop-down button next to your profile picture that says “Profile”. You’ll tap or click to select it instead
  5. In the resulting drop-down menu, select the option that reads “Account” or “View Account” on your mobile device
  6. Regardless of which platform you have chosen to use, the next page will display the same options. Showing you all the account details and an “Edit Account” button. Select the Edit Account button
  7. Select the appropriate field, containing the email account you want to change for Spotify
  8. Enter a new email address
  9. Select the “Save Profile” button.
  10. Go to your email and confirm the change if required. Spotify may send you an email to notify you of the change to the new email address. Or it might ask for confirmation of the change. Usually, no further action is needed.
  11. To test the change, log out of Spotify using the appropriate icon for your platform, as described in step four
