Before you can start using Spotify, you'll need to create an account with the service.  Fortunately, creating a free Spotify account is quick and easy.  And it's totally free!

How to create a Spotify account

  1. Go to in your web browser and click Log In in the top-right corner.

  2. At the bottom of the log-in screen, click Sign Up.

  3. If you have a Facebook account, you can log into it to help you quickly create your Spotify account.  Otherwise, you'll have to sign up by using your email address.

    Click in each of the boxes below where it says "Sign Up With Your Email Address" and type in or select (from top to bottom, left to right):

    -- A user name to represent yourself on Spotify with (it doesn't have to be your real name)
    -- A password that you wish to use to secure your Spotify account
    -- Your email address
    -- A copy of your email address
    -- Your date of birth (month, then day, then year)
    -- Your gender

    Once you've filled in all of your information, click Sign Up.

  4. If you successfully sign up, you'll be taken back to Spotify's home page, where you'll notice that Log In has been replaced by the user name that you just chose.

That's all that you have to do to sign up for Spotify!  The next step is to download and install the Spotify application!
