My Question or Issue

 Yesterday I wanted to disconnect my spotify account from my facebook. So I deleted the acces with facebook from the account settings. However when I logged back in this morning my name was changed to: 1170240794. I found out that my facebook cant be disconnected from spotify when its made with facebook so I kind of want my normal name back. How can I fix this?

 

Thank you in advance

Hey @HansRijksen!

 

Unfortunately at this time it is not possible to change an account’s username. The closest you can get is to link your Spotify account to your Facebook profile again so that your Facebook display name is the one shown on your account.

If you are really desperate to change your username, it is possible to create a new account!

 

Hope this helps and have a nice day :)

Reconnecting with facebook fixed it, it had a processing time of a day or so though. Thanks for the answer
