As rare as it is, having someone make unauthorized use of one of your Internet accounts is no fun. It’s even less fun when there are paid services involved. If you’re subscribed to Spotify Premium, you really don’t want a stranger using premium services that you paid for, or worse, finding your financial information and using it to purchase things for themselves at your expense.
Again, though, this is a situation that will almost never happen, especially if you take the right safety precautions. A key one is making sure that the password that protects your Spotify account is difficult to break. If you’re not sure if it is, read our How Secure Is My Password article for some hints on checking the strength of your password. You can also use these hints to come up with a better password.
As for actually changing your Spotify password, the process is fairly simple.
To change your Spotify password:
Go to www.spotify.com in your web browser and log in.
You should be taken to your “Account Overview” screen. Look in the left-hand-menu for Change Password and click it.
Click in the box labelled “Current Password” and type in the password that you are using for your Spotify account right now. Then click in the box labelled “New Password” and type in the password that you want to use for your Spotify account going forward. Then click in the box labelled “Repeat New Password” and type in a copy of your new password. Finally, click Set New Password (or click Cancel if you change your mind).
If you are successful in changing your password, you will receive the message “Password Updated” from Spotify.
There! You’ve changed your Spotify password!
