Thread Name: Spotify is a pile of shite
Subject: RE: Spotify is a pile of shite
When you subscribe to a service that requires you to have a username and password, they usually send you a confirmation email that shows your username and sometimes your password. I have made a practice of saving those emails in a folder called "subscribed."

I've been using Spotify for many months without having to remember my username or password, because I never log out. Then one day recently I found myself logged out, probably due to some update to Spotify that had been downloaded automatically. So I opened that folder, found the email, and was logged on again in seconds.

As it happens, in my case it was the username I had forgotten, not my password. I had assumed my username was my email address, but it wasn't.

On the login screen, there is a link at the bottom that says "Forgot your password?" If you click that link, it will take you to a web page that gives you instructions for resetting your password.
