You don't need a Facebook account to sign up anymore so you can make a new account with a new custom username. Don't sign up with Facebook, that makes your username some random numbers.

Hi Sam,
for obvious reasons I'd like to change my username. It doesn't sit well with me knowing that people might misunderstand.

is it still impossible to change the name?

It is still impossible, yes. To change your username, you'd need to create a new account.

Hi Spotify

Just opened an account to download S Premium. I realised my Username is a 10 digit number and can´t be changed. How on earth can someone offer a web based service with  login name like that. This can´t be true. Is this representative for the rest of this product then i´m worried. Also i can´t get rid of the Facebook login. I am thinking of replacing iTunes with Spotify.  But if log in is thid complicated i´m not sure..........

Can anyone advice me on a simple way to fix this.

Thanks

Hi,

 

I beleive if you have an email associated with your account, you can log in with that; or if you have a facebook account associated with your account, you can just login using facebook automatically. There should be no need to login using the number.

Except for those of us who don't use Facebook anymore. I deleted my Facebook and cannot log in unless I use my ridiculous 10 digit code. Give me a break.

You shouldn't be able to log in using that either because Facebook accounts can't be disconnected. You have to make a new account without going through Facebook to get a username to log in without FB.

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

There is no way to change your Spotify username, due to the way playlists are mapped to accounts on the Spotify network. 

 

If you want to move to a new account, just make a new one using your email address on the signup page and then either use steps 3 and 4 in this tutorial to move the playlists to your new account, or get in touch with customer services using the online contact form and they will be able to do it for you.
