  1. On the menu, select Settings.

Frequently asked questions about changing your Spotify password

There are several reasons why you may be unable to log into Spotify with your correct password. They include:

  • Typing error: Watch out for accidental caps lock or spaces in your password when entering it.
  • Account hacked: If you’re sure of the password but keep receiving an error, your account may have been hacked and the password changed. In this case, you can try resetting the password.
  • Network error: there may be an internet connectivity problem, or Spotify’s servers might be down. Check your network reception or social media to see if other users have the same experience.

You need a browser to change your Spotify password, as neither of the apps can do it. If you access Spotify through your Facebook account, you’ll need to change your Facebook password, which will automatically update your Spotify login. Otherwise, Spotify’s servers might be down, so wait a while and try again later.

No, you can’t change your Spotify password without email. Your email is essential for security verification, and you need access to it to change or reset your Spotify password. If you lose access to that email account, update your email in the Spotify account settings.
