Hi! This is probably been asked a lot before, but I could not find exactly what I was looking for.
I got my spotify account some years ago, and I made my account through facebook. My problem is that I really want to connect spotify to other devises etc.. So I found a place where I could make a username to my spotify.. My problem is that I never got the change to make my own username, it was already a username there.. It is many numbers and really hard to remember...
It is a way to change that? I had never been there before so I think its weird that it was made by itself(since other people I know could make their own..)
Thanks for answers(sorry, I know it is some incorrect grammar)
Solved! Go to Solution.
LOL, Spotify support offered to delete my Facebook account and migrate to a new user... Anyways, the solution that worked for me is to ignore the (Moderators Only) part of this page and change it yourself: https://community.spotify.com/t5/user/myprofilepage/tab/personal-profile
hello i disconnect from facebook but it won t work and my real name is still on it with my profile picture
i also disconnect spotify from facebook...
can someone tell me how to do it ?
If you already unlinked Facebook from within the app (Preferences > Disconnect from Facebook), give it a little while to update.
In a day or two, your name will eventually revert back to your Spotify username.
I've waited over 2 weeks now after deleting my facebook connection. It's still not fixed.
My facebook real name and picture is:
- on my online profile page
- on my app profile, and any where username shows up
My original username (the one I want)
- is used when logged into settings through a web browser
- my profile URL
Not acceptable of course. How do I force this change to happen?
Clearly not changing after a day or 2.

thanks. Got tired of looking for the contact form and kept getting directed here 😉
That's your community profile, not your Spotify account.
My son signed up with his full name and now doesn't want his full name showing up on playlists, which is understandable. There really needs to be a way to change username. What year is it?
This doesn't seem to really change it though? I cannot log into the account with the username I "changed" into, I still need to use the old one.
How long before it reflected on your account? It does on this page but not when I access my account from other pages/locations.
That will only change your username for the Spotify Community, it won't affect your main account you use to log in.
I can't believe there's still no way to do this and the solution provided is to delete the account and create a new one.
If I already have a premium account, would I have to cancel the membership to create a new account to have my username changed?
No, create your new account with a different email address from the one you use for Facebook, and choose your new Spotify username of your choice.
Once you have this new account, fill out the contact form, and someone from Spotify will be happy to help you migrate your Premium privileges, library, playlists, friends, etc. to this new account.
Hope it helps. 🙂
You do realize the OP wanted to change his Spotify username? Not his Spotify community username, right? There's a big difference.
I tried the link. It says it got changed but it's still the old one up on my profile in the app
