Hi there,

 

At the moment there isn't a way to turn on the "Private Session" mode automatically after log in. 

 

However, you can also control how your listening habits are shared by going to Edit > Preferences (in Windows) or Spotify > Preferences (in Mac) and editing your 'Activity Sharing'. These preferences will be saved on your account until you decide to change them again.

I am using Windows, but can you be a bit more accurate of the edit > preferences? is it in spotify(the program), the web, or in the computer files?

Yes this is in the Spotify application on your desktop. Just open the Spotify app, log in and the "Edit" tab will at the top next to "File".

Hi Thawi - If you'd like to always be in a 'Private Mode' just follow the instructions below:

 

Anyone who follows you on Spotify can see what you’re listening to in real time, unless you turn on a Private Session.

Pick a device below to learn how to draw the curtains.

 

Note: Anything you play privately may still factor into some of the personalized mixes we make for you (but not Discover Weekly).

 

  1. Click  in the top right corner of the app.
  2. Select Private Session. Your picture changes to show the private session is active.

The Private Session ends when you restart Spotify, or after a long period of inactivity.

 

  1. Tap Home 
    Got Premium? Tap Your Library .
  2. Tap Settings .
  3. Under Social, switch Private Session on.

The Private Session ends when you restart Spotify, or after a long period of inactivity.

Hi guys,

so if I have all my activity hiden there is no way people can reach my music? What about all my FB friends? Should I turn on Private Mode... every time??

 

Thanks for your support

Hi raulserrano - If you've changed all your 'Activity Sharing' and 'Profile' settings nothing will be shared.

 

These can both be accessed from your Preferences Page: Edit > Preferences (in Windows) or Spotify > Preferences (in Mac)

@Meredith: You say "nothing will be shared" - Does this include the Spotify ticker at right hans site of the app? I mean what's the point of the "private session" button if you can just turn it all off in the preference settings?

 

I'm seriously considering making a fake FB profile to avoid the sharing stuff - I'm clicking the pricvate session EVERYTIME anyway.
