Help: How do I block or delete a follower from my Spotify? ie: a psycho Ex?

A guy I dated  is following my music playlists and I can't figure out how to delete or block him. Seems like no big deal but he's a psycho and it creeps me out that he has any connection to me. HELP

Re-create your playlist and make it non-public.

Spotify for music listening, user since April 2009. Netflix for movie watching, user since July 2013. 100M/5M cable modem and 21M/5M mobile network. Pimp your life with streaming everywhere!

I have a similar problem. What about the "star" playlist?

I have the same problem! They can not only follow a specific list, they can also follow the whole profile!? So when I put a new song in one of my "secret" lists he knows because it shows on my profile (Recent Activity) what song and when I added it.

 

Secret playlist does not help and "Private Session"  turns off all the time.... annoying as hell!

My psycho ex is doing the exact same thing. There used to be a way you could block someone from your profile. He is already blocked on facebook and spotify just updated me to the newest version and now i know that he has been following me for months! Its truly creepy and there is no option to block him, please help! I don't want to have to permenantly listen to music in private! :(

This is happening to me too. My ex has begun cyber stalking me every way he can. Recently he e-mailed me using my recently played list as an excuse to contact me. I block him every time it comes up - but this guy has contacted friends of mine via e-mail and it disturbs me that he's keeping tabs on me. I suppose my music listening history is rather begnin information - but I wouldn't be shocked if he found some way to use it in an inappropriate way to contact me.

 

We should have the option to report and/or ban certain followers without completely shutting down sharing.

Hey :) 

 

For anyone having this issue, and would like the ability to block/remove followers, I would suggest you add your kudos and comments to this topic over on the ideas exchange which suggests that functionality be added.

I think it's rather irresponsible of Spotify not to have this functionality.

Same problem - ex girlfriend now has some idea about what im doing and what im listening to at any given moment (she is blocked in facebook) and I have to see her every time I click on "Followers" ... its disturbing, creepy, annoying and completely ruins any good mood i might be in from the misic I listen to.

 

PLEASE GIVE US BLOCKING ABILITY OR JUST USE OUR FACEBOOK BLOCK LIST!!!!

 

PRETTY PLEASE? .... 

 

Thank you
