If you’d like to change your Spotify password, or you’d like to reset the password as you’ve forgotten it, Spotify makes it easy to do so. We’ll show you how to do that for your account.
To change or reset your password, you will use Spotify’s website on your Windows, Mac, Linux, Chromebook, iPhone, iPad, or Android phone. The Spotify app itself doesn’t offer the option to change or reset the password.
How to Change Your Spotify Password
If you recall your current password, you can log in to Spotify and change the password to anything of your choice. We have a guide detailing how to create a strong password if you’d like to check it out.
To get started, open a web browser on your device and launch the Spotify site. If you are not already logged in, log in to your account and then access the Spotify site again. This is because, once you log in, your browser takes you to Spotify web player.
At the top-right corner of the Spotify site, click “Profile” and select “Account” from the menu.
On the account page that opens, from the sidebar to the left, select “Change Password.”
On the right of the Spotify site, a “Change Your Password” section will appear. Here, click the “Current Password” field and type your current Spotify password.
Then, click the “New Password” field and type the new password you want to use. Click the “Repeat New Password” field and type the same password again.
Lastly, at the bottom of the “Change Your Password” section, click “Set New Password.”
Spotify will display a “Password Updated” message, which confirms your password was successfully changed.
And that’s how you modify the password for your Spotify account. You will now use this newly created password to log in to Spotify on all your devices.
