How to remove Spotify – free and paid
Ready to permanently delete your Spotify account including all data associated with it? You will need to visit Spotify’s support page to initiate the process. The process is also different depending on whether you are a Spotify Premium subscriber or a member of the ad-supported free tier.
How to Remove Spotify – Free Tier
Go to Spotify support and click “Close your account”.
Confirm that you want to close your account.
How to Remove Spotify – Premium Tier
If you’re a Spotify Premium member, Spotify doesn’t want to lose you. This made the cancellation process more difficult for Premium members by requiring you to call Spotify customer support. If you want to avoid talking to customer support, you need to cancel your Premium service. Once your account is back to the free tier, you can delete it without talking to customer service.
Can I recover my Spotify account?
If you deleted your Spotify account and think you made a mistake, you can recover it for seven days. After that, Spotify will erase your data from their servers and your account will be gone forever.
What are the best Spotify alternatives?
There are a number of music streaming services that directly compete with Spotify. Spotify has been trying to become the home of top-tier podcasts, so switching may not be a viable option for you if you listen to a lot of podcasts. However, if you just want to listen to music, try these streaming services.
Napster and Tidal are the most artist-friendly streaming services out of the five listed above. They pay higher royalty rates to artists per stream than the other three. Apple Music and Deezer are similar in what they pay artists, while Amazon Prime Music is even worse than Spotify in how much artists are paid per stream.
