Login to the Desktop app and go to your profile. Right click on your name and 'copy HTTP link'.

 

Paste that link somewhere and you'll see your spotify username, which is a large, random number.

If your Facebook logs you into the same account with your playlists, you can view your original username on your online overview.

Enter your email address on the password reset page, the reset email contains your username and a link to reset the password if needed.

I have the same problem as the initial user where I do not know my spotify username. I am connected via facebook but when i click login with facebook the message "It looks like you already have a Spotify account with the email (my email). Please login below." But when I put my email into the login area a popup appears that says "Forbidden character in username: @." 

Because I do not know my username I cannot login in via spotify, and when I try to log in with facebook it tells me that since I already have a spotify account I should log in below. Why is it not just logging me in when I try to log in with facebook?

Also, when I go to password reset it tells me "It looks like you are using your Facebook credentials to log in to Spotify. To change your Facebook password go to your settings page at facebook.com." I changed my facebook password and this has done nothing to help the issue, and I cannot get a reset email so I cant get my username

I know my password, but I can't log in because I don't have my username. This happened after my phone did the automatic updates.
