How to cancel Spotify Premium through the app 

If you have downloaded Spotify through the App Store and don’t have access to another device, you can still cancel Spotify premium by following these steps:

  • Open up the Spotify app
  • Click on settings
  • Click on account
  • Click on your Premium subscription tab
  • From there, open the Spotify webpage and follow the above instructions

If this doesn’t work head into your phone settings, tap on your profile, and find your subscriptions. From there, find the Spotify subscription and click on cancel subscription.

How to delete your Spotify account

If you want to get rid of Spotify completely, you can also close your Spotify account and delete your data. However, keep in mind that you won’t be able to use your account to listen to Spotify for free, and you’ll also lose access to any purchased audiobooks or live tickets for future events if you close your account and delete your data.

If you want to go ahead and delete your Spotify account and delete your data, you can follow this link if you’re a premium user, or follow this link if you don’t have premium. 

After you close your account, Spotify will email you a link which you can use to reactivate it within seven days. If you don’t use that link within those seven days, you can’t reactivate your account anymore, and Spotify will begin the process to delete your data.

You can use the same email address to create a new account after 14 days from the date of closing your account.

That’s all you need to know in order to cancel Spotify. Of course, even without paying you can still listen to Spotify for free – so be sure to check out our guide to the best earbuds for iPhone.
