How to Update and Change Your Spotify Account’s Email Address

Having the correct email address associated with your Spotify account is important to ensure you receive important notifications and can access your account. Sometimes you may need to update the email address linked to your Spotify account. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to change your Spotify email address.

When You Should Change Your Spotify Email

There are a few situations when you may want to update the email address connected to your Spotify account:

  • You have a new email address you want to use instead. This could be because you changed email providers, your old email was compromised, or you want to consolidate multiple emails.
  • You no longer have access to the email address your Spotify account uses. If the email address no longer exists or you can’t access it, you’ll want to change it so you can get into your Spotify account.
  • You see suspicious activity on your Spotify account. If you notice logins from unfamiliar locations or other suspicious behavior, changing your email can help secure your account.

Before Changing Your Email

Before changing your Spotify email address, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Log out of Spotify app sessions. Make sure to fully log out of the Spotify app on all your devices before changing your email. This ensures a smooth transition.
  • Check if email is already in use. Enter the desired new email address on Spotify’s sign up page to verify no other Spotify account is using it.
  • Have new email verification ready. Ensure you have access to the new email address so you can complete email verification after the change.

How to Change Spotify Email Address

Follow these simple steps to change the email address linked to your Spotify account:

On Desktop

  1. Go to the Spotify website and log into your account
  2. Click on your Profile > Account in the top right
  3. Under Account Overview, click Edit Profile
  4. In the Email field, delete the old email and type the new email address
  5. Enter your account Password to confirm the change
  6. Click Save Profile at the bottom to update your email

You will receive a verification email at both the old and new email addresses. Follow the verification link in the email sent to your new email address to complete the change.

On Mobile

  1. Open the Spotify app and tap the Settings icon
  2. Choose Account > Change Email
  3. Enter your new email address and tap Send Verification Email
  4. Check the new email inbox for the verification message from Spotify
  5. Follow the verification link in the email to confirm the new address

After following these steps, your Spotify account’s email address will be officially changed. The updated email will now be used for logging into your account and receiving notifications.

What Happens When You Change Spotify Email

Here are some key things that happen when you change the email address on your Spotify account:

  • Same username, password, and data. Your Spotify username, password, saved music, playlists, preferences, listening history, etc. stay exactly the same.
  • Re-login required. You will have to login again with your new email address and existing password on all devices.
  • Verify new email address. Spotify will send a verification email to your new address to confirm the change.
  • Old email stays on billing. If you use Spotify Premium, your payment details and subscription continue as-is, including the old email address. Only the main account email changes.

So you can rest assured changing your Spotify email only impacts the email notifications and login email, nothing else!

Troubleshooting Spotify Email Change

Here are some common issues faced when trying to change Spotify email address and how to fix them:

  • Can’t enter new email? If you can’t type a new address, your Spotify account may have been created through Facebook. In this case, you cannot change the email on your own. You will have to contact Spotify Support to update the email.
  • Email change reverses? Sometimes the email switch gets reversed before verification is complete. Just repeat the steps above and this time quickly verify through the email sent to your new address after initiating the change.
  • Don’t receive verification email? Check your spam folder. If not there, try the steps again and ensure you entered the new email correctly with no typos. You can also contact Spotify Support if issues persist.
  • Suspicious login activity? If you receive warnings of suspicious logins to your Spotify account, first change your password before attempting to change your email address as a security precaution.

By following this guide, you should be able to smoothly transition to a new email address for your Spotify account. Having an updated, secure email linked ensures you have full access to all of Spotify’s music, podcasts, and features.

Expert Tips for Updating Spotify Email

Here are some additional professional tips when changing your Spotify account email address:

  • Use a secure email provider for your new Spotify email address to prevent hacking, like Gmail or Outlook.
  • Enable two-factor authentication with your new Spotify email for added security on your account.
  • Remove old email logins from password manager apps like LastPass and add the new email address instead for smooth future logins.
  • Review Spotify account recovery options with your new email in case you ever get locked out of your account.
