When i signed up, I chose a display name.

But when i upgraded to premium, my display name became a bunch of random numbers and alp[habets.

How can i restore my original display name?

Hey there @TehWX,

 

Thanks for reaching out! 

 

At the moment it's not possible to change your username or the display name. You can link your account to Facebook if you have one, so that the name of your profile there shows in your Spotify account too.

 

The other option would be to:

  1. Cancel your subscription.
  2. Create a new account.
  3. Transfer your music from your old to your new account.
  4. Close the old account.

 

We hope this helps!

Hi Petya,

 

The thing is, i did key in a display name when i first set up my account.

It is only after upgrading to premium that i face this issue.

So if i create a new account and upgrade to premium, i will face this problem again.

Hey @TehWX,

 

Thanks for confirming!

 

I understand. This could happen if you've created your account on your mobile device. 

 

You could try creating a new account on a Desktop device. If it has the display name you want, you can safely follow the steps above.

 

Let us know what happens!

Hi Petya,

 

If I create a new account, am I able to reuse my existing E-Mail?
