Hey there folks,

 

Thanks for posting about this here in the Community!

 

If you've disconnected your Facebook profile from your Spotify account but still see your Facebook name and profile picture, we'd first recommend logging out of your account and back in to shake things up.

 

Keep in mind that you can follow the steps here to update your Spotify account's profile picture anytime, and here to change your display name in the app.

 

If you're having troubles or have any questions, don't hesitate to give us a shout in the relevant Help Board - we'll be happy to lend a hand!

 

Hope this is info helpful 🙂

By the way, it's not possible to change the username. I suggest, contact Spotify support so they can free up your email address and create a new account. They can also transfer your playlists, followers, and Your Music

I mean, how to change my display name. I know username can't be changed. I want to change the name on my profile from using my facebook name to what it used to (my username). Do you know how to change it?

Hey @ajasminea

 

Once you disconnect Facebook from your Spotify account, it can take 1-2 days before your profile picture reverts back and your display name changes back to your username.
