My Question or Issue

I think you should be able to make profiles private, and choose who follows you and who doesn't. When your account is changed to private if you choose on a setting, people have to request to follow you to see your music/listening activity. I want to do this as I know that people are stalking what I listen to and listening to it and it feels like an invasion of privacy. I seriously think this should be a setting you can choose, as before I'd have to make new accounts to stop people from following me and it's a lot of effort.

Hey @blissfullithium,


Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community.


If you'd like to present your feedback as an Idea for Spotify and haven't found any related ones in the meantime, make sure to follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Spotify Community
  2. Click on Menu
  3. Click on Ideas > Idea submissions
  4. Scroll all the way to the bottom and click on Let’s go


As a heads-up, it's good to know that the higher the number of votes an Idea gets, the more likely it is for the Idea to be implemented. If you wish to learn more about how your feedback will reach Spotify, feel free to take a look at this article.


Hope you'll find this info useful. Have a nice day!

I have the same problem and still hope for a solution. Users must have the right to complete privacy.
