What if I made my Spotify account with Facebook?
If you created a Spotify account via Facebook, you will need to set a new password entirely for your devices. This is because, well, you don’t have a password at all if you use Facebook to log in. You just select the Facebook button.
In this case, instead of Change password, an option marked Set device password will appear.
On this page, select the green SEND EMAIL TO SET PASSWORD button to get started.
How to reset your Spotify password
If you have forgotten your Spotify password, you will need to reset it.
To do this on Android, iOS, and desktop, head over to your browser. Go to the Password Reset page on Spotify and enter your account’s Email address or username. Press the green button marked SEND to continue.
Spotify will subsequently send you an email containing a Reset password link. Click this link to be redirected back to Spotify, where you can type in a new password. Save your changes and exit to finish.
To reset your Spotify password, you must have your account’s email address or username. That is all. You may have entered the wrong email address or username; however, you are not required to know your original password to get a password reset link via email.
You must know your email address to reset your password. Spotify recommends visiting their Password Reset page and entering possible email addresses you own, and “when you enter the right one, you’ll get the message that the password reset email was sent.” They also say that you can try logging in with other methods you may have used to sign up, including Facebook, Apple, Google, and a phone number. If you find a way to log in, you can see your email and username by going to your Account overview in your browser. If you signed up with Facebook, the email tied to your Spotify account will be the same one as the email you use to log into Facebook.
The best way to remember your password is by not having to! That sounds pretty contradictory, but many of us at Android Authority live and die by password managers. By entering your credentials and locking them away in a secure password manager, you can ensure you will always have access to your passwords in seconds. These are safe, easy-to-use “lockers” for your passwords. You can even have a password manager like LastPass generate a randomized password for you that will be very difficult for people to steal. Whenever you need to log into your account, your password manager will fill out the fields for you.
