How to connect or disconnect Spotify and Facebook
If you use both Spotify and Facebook, you may be wondering how to connect or disconnect the two platforms. Connecting both of your accounts allows you to easily log into Spotify from anywhere without recalling a separate password or needing to remember a username, and it will enable you to find and follow your friends.
THE SHORT ANSWER
To connect Spotify to Facebook, open the Spotify desktop app. Open Settings > scroll down to Social > click CONNECT WITH FACEBOOK. This will open up a Facebook login popout, where you can log into your Facebook account and link it.
To disconnect Spotify from Facebook, you must have created your Spotify account with an email address and then connected to Facebook after. If this applies to you, open the Spotify desktop app and go to Settings. Scroll down to Social and click DISCONNECT FROM FACEBOOK.
How to connect Spotify to Facebook
For the uninitiated, Spotify offers you the option to sign up with your Facebook account. This automatically connects Spotify and Facebook.
However, if you signed up for Spotify with an email address or another method not involving Facebook, you must link the two accounts separately.
To do this, open the Spotify app on your desktop computer. Click the display name dropdown and click Settings.
Scroll down to the section marked Social, then click CONNECT WITH FACEBOOK. This will open up a Facebook login popout, where you will log into your Facebook account to link it.
How to disconnect Spotify from Facebook
The option to disconnect Spotify from Facebook is only available to those who created their Spotify account using an email and connected their Facebook account afterward. If this is the case for you, open the Spotify desktop app and, once again, go to Settings. Scroll down to Social and click the button that reads DISCONNECT FROM FACEBOOK.
If you initially created your Spotify account using a Facebook account, no DISCONNECT FROM FACEBOOK button will appear under Social.
