As one of the most popular music playback software, Spotify has a large number of users all over the world. However, we may still give up using Spotify and delete Spotify account for various reasons. We cannot play Spotify songs offline, Spotify does not have the copyright of the music we want to listen to, and other music playback software such as iTunes is more attractive to us, etc., may cause us to give up using Spotify. This article will specifically explain to you the methods and specific steps to delete Spotify account on Android, Mac and other systems. I believe this will definitely help you.
Part 1: What Should You Know If You Want to Delete Spotify?
Before deleting a Spotify account, you must understand the following points, otherwise you may not be able to delete the Spotify account or you may encounter some troubles after you delete the Spotify account.
1. About Spotify premium subscription
Because users need to pay to get Spotify's Premium subscription, Spotify does not allow accounts with Premium subscriptions to be deleted. Therefore, if you have a Spotify Premium subscription, then you cannot delete your Spotify account directly. Before deleting your Spotify account, you must cancel the subscription. If you don't know how to cancel Spotify Premium, you can check out How to Cancel Spotify Premium on Android? or How to Cancel Spotify Premium on iPhone? After Spotify confirms that your account belongs to the free version, you can refer to the method I introduced above to delete your Spotify account.
2. About music you downloaded from Spotify
After deleting your Spotify account, the playlists in your Spotify account will also be deleted. Therefore, you can download and save your favorite music from Spotify before deleting your Spotify account. However, if you uninstall Spotify and delete your Spotify account, you will not be able to play these music files. Due to various reasons such as copyright and security, Spotify add DRM protection to all its music files. After Spotify adds DRM protection, these music files will only be recognized and played by Spotify. Therefore, even if you download music from Spotify, due to the protection of DRM, you will not be able to use music playback software other than Spotify to play these music files.
- Convert iTunes DRM-protected M4V movie and TV show to DRM-Free MP4
- Remove DRM from M4B, AA, AAX files and convert any Audible AA, AAX file to MP3, even without iTunes authorization
- Convert iTunes DRM-Protected M4P and non-DRM iTunes M4A Music to MP3
- Remove DRM-protection on Spotify music and convert to Universal audio format for enjoying music offline on any devices
- Convert DRM-protected eBook from Kindle, Kobo, Adobe to DRM-free epub, mobi, azw3, txt, etc., format
Therefore, if you want to use other music playback software to play the music files downloaded from Spotify, you must remove the DRM from these music files. You can consider using Leawo Prof. DRM to remove DRM from Spotify music files. As a comprehensive DRM removal program, Leawo Prof. DRM can easily remove DRM on Spotify music and convert these music files into common music player compatible formats, such as MP3, M4B, M4A, etc. Therefore, only if you use Leawo Prof. DRM, you don't need to worry about not being able to play music downloaded from Spotify after deleting your Spotify account.
