Well from my understanding the one issue was regarding a Facebook account,because it’s easy to hack. And the other page didn’t help me a lot. From my understanding it says you can delete your account only I you have a free account,and activate an account again. With Spotify premium you have to cancel first,then delete your account. Why didn’t support say that to me, I just want my usernames to be the same on both my profile and here. Support said I could as I said my email,but I had to change my username. My username is almost the same as before,so that’s okay. But I wanna delete that long strip.... in a easy way

According to Spotify support,which is a nightmare to chat with you can’t do the tips you gave me. You could a few years ago. But according to support you’ll get a new system generated username consisting of a long strip of letters and numbers because of security issues. So I’ll just have to let it e a guess. But the support chat is joke if you ask me. They don’t know what Spotify Connect is,not what API is and so on. Not that  im either am entirely sure what it is. But I do belive it’s a protocol of sort.
