Another way to cancel is by logging in to your account. Use the next steps below.

Conclusion

Note that you still get to keep your account even after cancellation. However, Spotify also allows users to close their accounts and permanently delete their data. After closure, you will get an email with a reactivation link in case you change your mind about closing your account. You can no longer reactivate within seven days. After this time, you'll have to create another account with Spotify if you want to use this platform again in the future. If you have questions about your Spotify account, please don't hesitate to get in touch with Customer Support.

Why does GetHuman Write How-to Guides for Spotify Problems?

GetHuman has been working for over 10 years on sourcing information about big organizations like Spotify in order to help customers resolve customer service issues faster. We started with contact information and fastest ways to reach a human at big companies. Particularly ones with slow or complicated IVR or phone menu systems. Or companies that have self-serve help forums instead of a customer service department. From there, we realized that consumers still needed more detailed help solving the most common problems, so we expanded to this set of guides, which grows every day. And if you spot any issues with our How do I cancel my Spotify account? guide, please let us know by sending us feedback. We want to be as helpful as possible. If you appreciated this guide, please share it with your favorite people. Our free information and tools is powered by you, the customer. The more people that use it, the better it gets.
