Spotify and Facebook are pretty close these days, with Facebook log in seemingly the preferred method of setting up an account. But, some of us don't have a Facebook account, or just plain don't want to use anything that makes us log into it in this way. Fear not though, because with Spotify there is another way. You just have to look beyond the iOS app to find it.
Opening up Spotify on your iPhone or iPad brings up the welcome screen we see up top. Login with Facebook, or login with your Spotify details. Absolutely zero options for signing up to a Spotify account here other than Facebook. To get around this, set down your iOS device, and head on over to the Spotify homepage in your desktop web browser.
Here, when you hit the log in option at the top, you'll be presented with a box that asks you for your Facebook details, or your Spotify details, and in this case, offers you a "Sign Up" option should you not have an account. Go ahead and click here.
As if by magic, it gives you the option to sign up to a Spotify account in the good, old-fashioned way; with your Email address. Enter your details, hit sign up, and you should be good to go. Once you've completed any necessary verifications, head back to your iOS device, enter your credentials, and you're away. Totally Facebook free!
