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 got a username, but spotify has chosen to make my real name visable (probably due to the facebook connection)... Is there any way that I could remove my name at least and use my username instead?

The only way to do that is by removing your Facebook connection in the Desktop app (Preferences > Disconnect from Facebook).

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.

No way to change preference if you used fb as you log in details...

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.

Hey @aftertherevolt,

 

You should fill out the contact form, and someone from Spotify will be happy to help you within 24 hrs. Don't forget to check your spam folder for responses as they may end up there.

 

If you get an automated email directing you to the community or help pages, you need to reply directly to support@spotify.com and one of the customer services agents will get back to you.

You guys should work on letting us change it. Because that would be so helpful to so many people.
