How To Disconnect A Device From Spotify

Whether you’re worried you left your Spotify account connected to a friend’s Xbox, to a smart Soundsystem as a recent party, or on an old phone you forgot to wipe before you sold it we’re here to show you how to disconnect a device from Spotify.

Unfortunately, there’s no simple way to disconnect just one device at a time from your Spotify Premium account. Instead, you’ll have to disconnect all devices and then log back in on only the devices you want to be connected to your account.

A little bit roundabout, sure, but worth the time. To learn how, simply follow our tutorial below. For all other information or questions, check out our FAQ section at the end of the article.

Note: It is only possible to disconnect devices from Spotify on the website, or through the desktop app.

How to disconnect a device from Spotify (desktop app only)

  1. Open up the Spotify app on your desktop device and sign into your account
  2. Click your username/profile badge in the top-right of the homepage, and from the drop-down menu select ‘Account’
  3. You will be redirected to the Spotify website on your default browser
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the first page until you see the option to ‘Sign out everywhere’ – click this button!
  5. You have successfully disconnected all connected devices from your Spotify account (though, note that it may take up to one hour to take full effect).
  6. Finally, open the Spotify app on all of the devices you do want to be connected to your account, and sign back into said account using the correct credentials for it. 

Congratulations! You have successfully disconnected all devices from Spotify except those ones you wish to keep connected.For any more information or if you have further questions, see our FAQs below.


What devices are connected to Spotify?

If you have a Spotify Premium account of any kind, chances are that you have multiple devices ‘connected’ to that account. You can have as many devices connected to a Spotify Premium account as you like, and can then listen to all of your saved and favorite playlists, albums, and podcast shows through those devices, whenever you like.

However, if you’ve had your account for a while, and feel like you’ve accessed it on a whole range of devices (some public, some private), then you may be wondering What devices are connected to my Spotify account? Well, there’s actually no easy way to find out.

It used to be that you could see exactly what devices were connected to your account all in the one place, but this just isn’t true anymore. In fact, if you haven’t personally kept tabs on which devices you’ve connected to your Spotify, then there’s no way of knowing which ones still are.

Why would I want to disconnect a device from Spotify?

Since, as we’ve just explained above, you cannot tell exactly how many devices are connected to your Spotify account (nor which devices these maybe), you’re probably looking to disconnect devices from Spotify just to be safe and sure that only you have access to your music.

Perhaps you’re worried you left your friend’s TV connected to your Spotify account, or that random iPad at a party once, or an old phone you forgot to wipe before you sold it. Whatever your reason for wanting to disconnect a device from Spotify, we’re here to help. Just check out our tutorial above!

Can I reconnect a device to Spotify once I’ve disconnected it?

Sure! The only thing you need to do to connect a device to your Spotify account is open up the Spotify app or website on the device in question, log out of any account you’re currently logged into, and then log back into your chosen account. Doing so will ‘connect’ the device to the Spotify account, and it should stay connected until the next time you log out of said account on that device.

How many devices can I have connected to my Spotify account at once?

Technically, there is no limit to the number of devices you can have connected to your Spotify account at once, though there is a limit (to 1 device) on how many devices you can listen through at once. Whenever you log into your Spotify (Premium) account on a device, the account becomes connected to the device until it’s next logged out there.
