Spotify: how to permanently delete your account

If for some reason you want to permanently delete your Spotify account, the process is simple. In this tutorial, we will see how to close a Spotify account through the web version of the application since it is not possible to do it directly from the mobile version.

Spotify remains by far the most popular music streaming service in the world. The platform has already exceeded 100 million subscribers  since April 2019 and has more than 117 million users under the free formula, which brings the total to more than 217 million users. The service is way ahead of the competition, including Apple Music, Deezer, YouTube Music , to name a few.

Spotify is however far from perfect or its conditions of use are not necessarily suitable for everyone. Those who use for example an ad blocker now risk outright suspension of their Spotify account . If for some reason you decide  to delete your account , the process is simple.

Delete your Spotify account in 6 steps

Simple, but not necessarily obvious to those who have never done it. If you are a premium subscriber, you will need to end your subscription first . Then, you should know that deleting your Spotify account is an irreversible action. Once you have done so, it will no longer be possible to recover the account, your playlists or your preferences. You will have to start from scratch by creating a new account.

It is not possible to delete a Spotify account from the mobile application. You must necessarily go through the web version of the service.

  4. In the category choice, select Account .
  5. Then choose the option  I want to close my account permanently .
  6. Confirm the deletion of the account after knowing the consequences of such a decision.

Spotify informs you that permanently deleting your account will result in: the non-possibility of reusing your current username, retrieving your music, saved playlists and your subscribers. Finally, in a final attempt to hold back, the platform reminds you that it still has more than 30 million pieces of music available for free and that it would be foolish not to take advantage of it…
