My Question or Issue

 When I signed up and registered my account I created the username EluminizaKarin. This username appears on certain things like if I want to logout it says "Log out of EluminizaKarin," but all my playlists say created by "1yu28olnit5lzbr0c9a4kmgx4" Is there really no way to change this? I think it is a little frustrating that I picked out a username but still can't seem to get it to show up.

Hi @1yu28olnit5lzbr!

Thanks for posting in the Spotify Community! 

Spotify recently removed the option for custom usernames in order to improve the user expierence. A way around this would be to connect your Spotify account to Facebook so that would use your name instead of random numbers and letters. There is some more information here over on the Spotify Support pages which gives some more information about the username change and also how to make it a little bit more custom using Facebook.


If you have any questions, let me know!


Take Care!
