[Account] random numbers username since a month :(


[Account] random numbers username since a month :(

Not applicable

Hey Spotify community!

maybe you can help me with this, that I see is a common issue but not worked out yet.

I am a premium user since ages. I registered back then as peyote_giuli.  A month ago a friend of mine wanted to listen to my music and couldn't fine me anymore cause.. apparently I became: spotify:user:1189384694.

my playlists are there and the app works on my devices, that are in sync so.. no big drama but I'd like to go back being peyote_giuli 🙂


I tried everything I found online. 

in case it helps: if I connect through facebook then it shows my FB name and surname. If I go to "change username", and I type in peyote_giuli, it says I can't sign with my current username (ahaaaah so you know I am not a sequence of numbers!!!)- And if I change username, still it shows.. the same numbers!!!


Any idea?

I know it's not a big drama as the app works but I would like to be peyote_giuli again, and my friends to listen to my stuff if they want to.

Hey @user-removed.


Thanks for getting in touch!
