Yes, it’s possible. Here’s how.
But first a little rant…
Spotify is by far the best music streaming service out there right now. If you haven’t tried it, you should.
But, I’m sure you can agree, it’s getting a little annoying all the Facebook integration. Sure it’s easy to see why they are doing it, but *should* they be doing it?
Just give us choices. That is all we ask, Spotify. We love you, but pu-lease.
Now back to the helpful portion of this blog post…
Here is a step by step on how to register on Spotify WITHOUT using you Facebook account. And NO, the answer is not make a fake Facebook account. That’s lame and dumb. My solution is far more sinister and pretty cool.
So apparently Germans don’t like and therefore don’t use Facebook all that much. That tends to be a real bummer for Spotify. So Spotify decided to offer their German users a straight registration process without the need for Facebook.
So this is exactly what YOU can do to. Here is how. BTW, You only need to go thru this process once.
Step 1. Go to a German Proxy service. Don’t know what that is? No biggie, it just means you are running your internet connection thru a German server. You will need to do this before to go to Spotify to trick them into believing you are from German. Tehe. BTW, this is not illegal in any way. So click here. https://www.german-proxy.de/
Step 2. Next copy and paste this German Spotify URL into the field as shown: https://www.spotify.com/de/signup/open/
Step 3. Now Click the link under the Facebook button that says, “Account mit meiner Email Adresse erstellen.” NOTE: If you do NOT use a German proxy this link will not appear. I tried it.
Step 4. Once you are at the German Spotify registration site, which is in German, you can go ahead and complete the registration process. See how I showed you exactly what to put in each blank? That’s for those that don’t read German.
That’s it! Now you can download the app to your computer, iPhone, iPad, etc. and log in with your new non-Facebook username and password!
