Hi. 

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.

 

Thank you.

I've asked to the assistance center and I couldn't solve my problem... Fortunately there is SOUNDIIZ... Otherwise I would have to remake my playlists again

Hi,

The proposed solution is not working anymore.

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.

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!

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 😊
