How to Reset a Spotify Password?

The music doesn’t have to stop just because you’ve forgotten your Spotify password. This streaming service offers everything from personalized playlists to pop culture podcasts. For many of us, it’s the first stop to hear the latest music from our favorite artists. Knowing how to perform a Spotify password reset is a must.

You’ll need to be using your browser because this won’t work on the desktop or mobile apps. Head over to the Password Reset page on your browser and follow these simple steps.

  1. Type your email address into the text box and click Send.

  2. Open a new tab, navigate to your inbox, and look for an email with the subject Reset your password. If you don’t see it within a few minutes, check your spam folder. For Gmail users, make sure to look in the Social and Promotion sections.

  3. In the email, click Reset password.

  4. You’ll be redirected to the Reset page. Enter and confirm your new password.

  5. Click Send.

  6. You can now return to the browser or the app and log in with your new password.

It’s really important to keep passwords secure across all your devices and profiles, but too many people still use the same login details for multiple accounts.

That can be convenient and make credentials easy to remember, but it also increases the threat posed by cybercriminals and hackers. If someone broke into one of your accounts, and that password was reused across many different profiles, you could be in trouble.

For this reason, you must change your password regularly and make sure to differentiate it from others.

How to change a Spotify password?

Still remember your Spotify password but want to change it today? Here’s how:

  1. Open Spotify on your browser (again, this won’t work on desktop or phone apps).

  2. Log into your account.

  3. Click on the profile icon in the upper-right corner of the screen.

  4. Click Account.

  5. Click Change password.

  6. Input your current password and your new password.

  7. Click Set new password.

Now you can open your app and, if you’ve been automatically logged out, input your new password. Being able to change your password with ease is always useful, and it’s an important part of best practice in digital security.

To avoid this problem altogether, of course, you can use a password manager. NordPass will keep your login credentials secure, generating and encrypting complex passwords. You won’t need to worry about forgetting them either - the service saves and auto-fills your details for you.

With NordPass, you can keep your password safe and your internet use stress-free.
