Display name on my account and playlists

Display name on my account and playlists

I have changed my face book account name, I have disconnected my facebook and reconnected several times. 

I can't find where to change the name on my Spotify account.

I do not want to be identified by my playlists, with my full real name.

Please show me where in the app or web player to stop displaying my full name.

This is a violation of my privacy and it has to stop.

All I want is to set the name on my account to a name of my choosing.

I never entered my real name, I do not know why I cannot change it.

Hi there!

After you've disconnected your Facebook account it will take some time for you name and photo to disappear. 

Be patient, just don't reconnect back and forth. 


Hope this helps!

Yes, that is right.


After disconnecting from Facebook it will take 24-48 hours for the name and photo to go away.
