When you sign up for a free or premium Spotify account on your mobile device or through Spotify.com, you gain access to the service’s huge library of music and audio programming.
But you may have signed up for more than one account, or you may have someone in your home that has a premium account versus your free account, and you’d like to sign into one of those other accounts on your Apple device.
Luckily it’s possible to sign out of the Spotify account that is currently logged in on your iPhone so that you can sign in with a different account.

More Information on Logging Out of Spotify on an iPhone
- The method for logging out of Spotify on an Android device, such as a Google Pixel, is nearly identical.
- Once you sign out of your Spotify account, you will lose access to your library on the device until you sign back in. This means any Spotify playlist that you’ve followed or created will be inaccessible on the device.
- There is a “Sign Out Everywhere” option if you are signed into your account at spotify.com. Simply click your account icon at the top right of the screen, then choose the Account option from the dropdown menu. Choose the Account Overview tab at the left side of the screen, then scroll down and click the Sign Out Everywhere button near the bottom of the Account Overview page. This will log you out of any device where you are currently signed in, such as an iPad, Mac, or Web browsers.
