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.
Alright, I can create a new account and really helpful to put my old playlist to my new one. But My old Spotify account has a nice link including my username and my new account has a really ugly randomly created (letters, numbers) username. I hate it.
How to get the new account link including my username as my old account?
I don't want to use a link with randomly created letters and numbers.
On account creation people are asked only about Display Name, which also will be impossible to change. Username is a generated sequence of digits and charactes, which is impossible to remember, email address is used for logging in.
Not sure that still many people consider that it's good idea to use Facebook account for authentication on other services, or even to have Facebook account at all.
As many people are using email addresses on free services it means that if their email address will be blocked they will be not able to use Spotify with username/password and change email address. The only posibility will be to contact support service and prove somehow that they are their accounts owners.
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 cancreate a new accountto 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.
