What a load of bs. I just connected my FB-Account to Spotify and all the sudden, Spotify took over my Name and Profil picture without any warning. After disconnecting FB, i still have cant change back to my former Profile name. Do i really have to open a new account to get my old name back?
I want to change my username because I created the account before everyone started sharing their playlists. If you want to keep your Spotify account on that email your original account was on, it is impossible! And creating a new email for the new account is also difficult because now cell phone numbers are required for email accounts. To the Spotify Team, I recommend creating a feature that allows you to change your username just once per account. Quizlet allows this, as an example. What would be awesome -- especially if it takes time to program this feature -- is if you could create a simple feature to export playlists into a list of songs (Microsoft Word Document) so that in case one's account gets messed up, one would have a backup. Thank you for hearing me out, and I hope this all goes through.
In my case I found my email was previously used to create an acount, Now I changed pasword and linked it to my facebook but the actual UserName, that was not selected or created by me stayes the same. I assume this happend way in the past to try and get some free months of premium.
It doesn´t ruin my life to use a random user name but it makes me a little insecure that my acount was not created by me.
