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 😊

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

I tried creating a new account so I could follow the instructions listed above and submit a contact form, but unfortunately my email is the same one my facebook is under, so it won't allow me to. Do I really need to create a new email just to try and get my username to be something other than a bunch of numbers?

Is there a way to totally cancel my account? I have someone who I do not want seeing my activity. I cannot keep them from following me.

 

I will reestablish a premium account but I need to completely remove any trace of my previous account.

 

Hope there is something we can do.

Are you afraid that your mom will see your history full of gangstar rap?

Very funny.

Hello!

 

Right now there is no way to change your username 😕 As described here. You can create a new account with the username you want and then send a contact form request to have your old playlists transferred over 🙂 

Hope this helped 🙂

Hey Josh,

 

thanks for posting that solution.

do you know, if i create a new account and have my playlists transferred over - will my followers come with me along with the artists i've followed and music i've saved?

 

i just recently launched my website and all of my social media handles are pretty much the same except for spotify, so i really want to keep everything cohesive but don't want to start from scratch. thanks to anyone who has the answer if josh is busy 🙂

If I already have a premium account, would I have to cancel the membership to create a new account to have my username changed?

Hey @thebjq,

 

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. 🙂

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?
