How can I change my username?

How can I change my username?

Yeah, I know that I can't change my username on Spotify, but I really want to know if anyone can help me. So, I am trans, but you just need to know that I changed my name and I hate my old name (like, I can't look at it without felling terrible). When I created my account on Spotify, I wasn't out as trans yet so my username is my old name, and I really need to change it. I can't create another account either, because my family has a premium plan and I can't put my new account there. I've already talked to other trans people about this problem and they related a lot. I don't know if it will happen, but it would be nice if Spotify let us change our usernames.

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


It’s not possible to change your username on Spotify, since it’s needed to identify you. You’re able to add or change a display name, where it shows on your profile, Friend Activity, etc. More information and steps on how to do this can be found here.


Hope this helps!
