My Question or Issue

Hi,

I've now deleted my Facebook account, and now my display on spotify is displaying as a bunch of numbers instead of my Facebook name.

 

I've never had the chance to choose my display name... is there a way to change it?

Hey @11123886016! Welcome to the Spotify Community. ^^

 

Unfortunately, at this time it is not possible to change an account’s username. The closest you can get is to link your Spotify account to your Facebook profile again so that your Facebook display name is the one shown on your account.

If you are really desperate to change your username, it is possible to create a new account!

 

Let me know if that helps, thanks! ^^

Peace

This is not a solution. I know for fact that the ability to change your display name has been requested for YEARS. 

 

if the cause of this issue not getting fixed is similar to your 10,000 song cap issue (because whoever designed your backend code did not think about expansion) then yall have some SERIOUS re-engineering to do.
