Display name change

cherry7

Hello, 

I imagine this gets asked a lot but I couldn't find an answer so I'll ask myself. I have been using a free Spotify free plan for a while now and I really want to change my display name. However, when i go into my account to do it, the option "Edit Profile" isn't available to me. Is there any way i could fix this or perhaps another way I could change my display name?

Thanks

Hi there @cherry7,

 

It's only possible to change your Display name on Mobile at the moment.

 

Go to Home> Settings >Tap View profile > Tap EDIT PROFILE > Tap your display name to change it > Tap Save.

 

If you don't see this option try running a clean reinstall of the app. Follow exactly the steps from this Spotify Guide to assure everything is set up properly. If you still can't see the option after that send us some screenshots of how your View profile looks in the Mobile app.

 

Let us know how it goes 🙂

Hi!
Thanks you for the quick response
I am using an Android phone, but I'm facing the same problem on my Windows laptop as well. My account is email based, I've never linked it to Facebook.
