Help! Unlinking my Spotify account from Facebook? 15:13 - Aug 28 with 778 viewsBlueastheycome

I deleted my Facebook account recently only to find in doing so it deleted my Spotify account too as they are apparently entwined.

How do I separate them? I want to create a stand alone Spotify account with all my playlists etc in tact. Is that possible?

I've tried Googling it but I'm abit of a noob and I can't seem to find a straight answer on this.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Edit: It's a premium subscription.

I'm a little confused.

You just go to Spotify.com and open an account, right? It won't be linked to Facebook unless you link it yourself in the settings.

Or do you mean how can you restore your old account, and then unlink it from your Facebook profile?

Can you still log into your account page if you go to the log in page?

If your old profile is kaput, I don't think you can transfer your playlists to a new profile, as there's nowhere to transfer from.

If you can still access your account, then you could try this:

Log in to your account page.
Click Recover playlists in the menu on the left.
Click RESTORE by the playlist you want to recover.
Open Spotify and find the restored playlist at the bottom of your playlist collection.

If you can access your old profile, and you recover your old playlists, you can unlink from Facebook by:

Open the Spotify desktop app.
Click in the top-right corner of the app.
Click Settings.
Under Social, click DISCONNECT FROM FACEBOOK.

Note: It can take up to 24 hours for the changes to be visible.

Ok I just copied and pasted the info you have posted into google and sadly it says this can not be done if you made your Spotify account with a Facebook login.

Essentially I want to find a way to separate it completely from my Facebook account.

If that's not possible, I want to create a new one, transfer the paying subscription over and get my old playlists etc from my old account so I can in turn shut my Facebook account down.

Oh I didn't realise you could create a Spotify profile via Facebook, sorry. I think I'm out of my depth here. The Spotify customer service team were pretty good when I needed to transfer my UK Spotify account to a US one. I'd give them a go.

When you joined Spotify, it asked you to either create a new profile or simply use your FB account to join up for ease.

Try going into your Spotify account & changing your login details (or perhaps unlinking with the FB one).

You're lucky he didn't try to charge you.

Well it looks like a duck, it sounds like a duck. Nope, dunno what it is.

Ahem. Well I've heard his prices are very competitive. But somebody does need to remind me again of his rates.
