How to Delete Your Spotify Account

Last updated: November 8, 2016 - 12:22pm EST

Did you see a service in our Spotify Alternatives article that you'd like to try out?  Or are you just not feeling enough of a groove when using Spotify?  Whatever your reason, you can delete your account on Spotify if you wish. Unfortunately, Spotify does not provide a way for you to independently delete your account.  Instead, you must contact Spotify's customer service department and ask them to remove your account from Spotify for you. 

Note that if you simply wish to stop paying for the service, it's easier to simply cancel your Spotify subscription.

For more details on how to get in touch with Spotify customer service, see our How to Contact Spotify tutorial here.

To delete your Spotify account:

  1. Go to and log in. 

  2. Scroll down to the footer and click About.

  3. Click Contact Form (under "Customer Service and Support").

  4. Click Account.

  5. Next, click I Want To Close My Spotify Account Permanently.

  6. Ignore the suggested articles and click I Still Need Help.

  7. In the "Tell us more" box, write that you want to delete your Spotify account.

Spotify will get back to you (usually within 72 hours) that your account has been deleted. If those steps were confusing, or not detailed enough for you, follow the indepth instructions below!

Detailed instructions (with pictures) to remove your Spotify account:

  1. Go to in your web browser and log in.

  2. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click About.

  3. Under the "Customer Service and Support" heading, click Contact Form.

  4. Spotify will ask you to select the general nature of your inquiry.  Click Account

  5. Spotify will now ask what about your account you would like to ask about.  Click I Want To Close My Spotify Account Permanently.

  6. Spotify will suggest some help articles that may be of use to you.  Ignore them and click I Still Need Help.

  7. On the next screen, click in the box labelled "Tell Us More" and type in a few details about the fact that you wish to delete your Spotify account, and why you want to do so.  Then click Send Question.

If all goes well, Spotify will get back to you with news that your account has been deleted.  Good luck!
