My Question or Issue

I deleted my Facebook account, and the Spotify nickname changed to an alphanumerical number, but it's confusing for my friends and others who want to find me. Is there any way you could set up a new one?

Hey @Matik7, thanks for reaching out to the Community!

 

It's not possible to change your username since it's used to identify you on Spotify. You can always add or change your display name, that replaces the username where it shows on your profile, and Friend Activity. More information and steps can be found here.

 

Hope this helps!

Hey @Matik7,

 

Can you send me a screenshot of what happens when you try to add a display name? Also, let me know what device you're trying to add it on.

 

Keep me posted!
