No matter how many times you type in your username and password, the Spotify app won’t let you log in sometimes. This page has information on all the best ways to fix Spotify login errors, such as problems with the internet, Spotify accounts, the app, or the operating system.

Why won’t Spotify let me sign in?
Most Spotify login problems are caused by problems connecting to the internet or by bugs in the Spotify app or on the device where it is installed. People often can’t log in to Spotify because they used the wrong username or password or tried to log in to the wrong app by accident.
What to do if you can’t get into Spotify
Here are some of the best ways to fix Spotify login problems. It’s best to go through these solutions in the order they’re written since they go from the quickest and easiest to the most complicated and advanced.
Put Spotify Connect to use
Instead of trying to log in to Spotify on your smart TV or game console, open the Spotify app on your phone, choose Connect or Devices, and then choose your device. This will sign you into Spotify without you having to type in a username or password.
Stop using “Airplane mode.”
When your device is in airplane mode, it can’t connect to the Spotify servers or use Wi-Fi or cellular data. Depending on whether you have an Android phone or an iPhone, Airplane Mode will be in a different place on each.
Stop using Wi-Fi
Turn off Wi-Fi on your smartphone and use the cellular connection instead. The internet on the Wi-Fi network could be down or too busy with other users.
Look at your login name and password
Check your username and password for Spotify again. You might have made a mistake when you were typing in your login information.

Change your password for Spotify
On the Spotify login page, click “Reset Password” to get an email with a new password. This also works when you can’t use Facebook or Google to sign in to Spotify.
Update the app for Spotify
If none of the above suggestions work, you may need to update the Spotify app on your device. You can update the app on an iPhone or Android by going to the App Store.
Keep your operating system up to date
A security issue that makes it hard to connect to the internet could affect an operating system that isn’t up to date. You can update your Android OS or your iPhone‘s iOS.
Restart your device
Your Spotify login problem might be fixed if you restart your Android or iPhone.
Android needs to clear its cache
If you can’t sign in to Spotify on an Android phone or tablet, you might need to clear the cached data.
