Steps to cancel a Spotify account
At the moment we are about to cancel a Spotify account, we must distinguish whether it is a Premium account or a free one. In the event that we have a current subscription, these are the steps to follow for its cancellation:
- We log in to our Spotify account page.
- In Your Plan , we click Change Plan .
- We scroll down to Spotify Free and click Cancel Premium .
- We continue everything until we get the confirmation message.
Once this is done, on our account page, we will see how the date on which our plan changes from Premium to Spotify Free is displayed. In the meantime, we will be able to continue using the payment functions until that date arrives . At that time, our account will become the conditions of a Free account, being able to log in, listen to music, access our playlist and everything we have saved. The only thing we will not be able to do is access the Spotify Premium functions.
If, on the other hand, we have a free account, that means that we will not have any plan to cancel and that our account will not have any payment information associated with it. Therefore, all we have to do is visit the following link and click on the Close account option .
Spotify will ask us if we are sure we want to close the account and will recommend us to read certain articles to try to solve any problem. If still what we want is to cancel the Spotify account, then we will have to click on the Close account button again. In the next step we will be shown the information of our account to confirm that we want to cancel the correct account.
Next, we will be shown a page in which we will be informed that when closing an account, all our podcasts, playlists, saved music, followers and our username will be lost. In order to proceed to the next step, we will have to check the box I understand and click Continue .
Spotify will indicate that to close the account we will have to go to our email associated with that account. There we will find a message that the platform will have sent us that will contain a link on which we must click to confirm the cancellation of our Spotify account. The link will expire in 24 hours , so if the time passes, we will have to request its closure again.
If for any reason this message has not reached our email account, we must check the spam or spam folder. If it’s not there either, then we’ll have to contact Spotify .
How to Delete Your Spotify Account
