How can i change my my spotify username?

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)

Hey everybody,

 

We've made some changes backstage and right now if you don’t like your display name you can change it by following the steps here

 

You could also connect to Facebook to display your Facebook name. But if you decide to add a Spotify display name, it will show instead of your Facebook one.

 

Last but not least, you can take a look at this Spotify Answer, if you want to read more about how you can customize your Spotify profile.

 

Give us a shout, in case there's anything else you need help with!

 

Take care 😊

Hello all!

 

Thanks for paying a visit to the Community.

 

You can’t change your username, but you can enter a preferred name during sign up to display on your profile. 

 

To display a different name on an existing account:

 

  • You can create a new account to enter a preferred name during sign up.  
    Note: Be sure to cancel any subscriptions on the existing account. Your new account won’t have access to any playlists, followers, or anything saved in Your Library on the existing account. 
  • Or, you can connect to Facebook to display your Facebook name.

Note: It’s not possible to log in with the name displayed on your profile.

 

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have further questions.

 

Have a nice day!

lol I had the same problem

Hi, I also have the problem of needing to change my username as I somehow have ended up with a username with about 26 random letters and a couple of numbers thrown in, don’t know how I managed that but I am not going to use it every time I sign in. 

I see the best answer by Mary was to create a new account but that didn’t work for me, it says my email is already in use and won’t let me proceed.

any other ideas?

Hey @omuapuxeigjfc9w

 

That string of characters is your actual Spotify username, which may have been assigned automatically to you when you created your account through Facebook.

 

Fortunately, they aren't something you need to remember, since you can simply sign in with your email address.

 

Sometimes it's displayed like that in the app, but normally it should update itself after a little while with your name.

 

Hope it helps. 🙂

You can delete your current account to free up your email and then make another account with your same email address

  1. Can't get my songs on Apple Watch
  2. Can't change my username

Two simple features that even ME could implement to their system if I was working for them.

 

I'm living. Hello Apple Music.

You need to delete everything or cancel your subscription. Then, choose your username or e-mail and register by not clicking or logging in on Facebook. Don't worry about the playlist or saved songs. Just remember songs/artist or depends on your vibe what you like/love listening to.

I can't believe that you can't change your username on Spotify, the creators need to have an update so you can change it!!! I'm mad!!!!

I just created a Spotify account. It never asked me for a username and now my account has a long username. One that I'll never be able to remember. How can I change it?

Hey @snenriquez,

 

Don't worry. That the string of characters isn't something you should need to remember. You can simply sign in with your email address, and you should be fine.

There is are 2 options!

 

1. Make a new account(i know nobody wants that, I don't even want it too

2. VOTE for this! https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/Change-username/idc-p/1677353#M116342

 

I hope a lot of people will vote because it's stupid that it isn't in Spotify
