I'm sorry to hear this! An error may have occured when you created your account, and autofill may have switched your name and password. If this is the case, you probably can reset your password here. If not, you may want to change your password here (for when you are already logged in). Unfortunately, you cannot reset your username in Spotify at the moment, but you can always log in with your email.


Hope this helped!

Thanks for getting in touch!


As @oburger04 mentioned, it's true that it's not possible to change your username. So if you need a new username, we recommend closing your account and creating a new one.


No worries, if you make sure your music collection is stored in public playlists, you can visit your old account with your new account and grab all your songs from there. You’ll be able to visit your old account by putting the following string in the search bar:  spotify:user:username


Don't forget to replace username with your own username. Oh and by the way, If you want to use the same email address for your new account, you'll have to close your old account. You'll have 7 days to visit your old account and find your music there. You’ll also need to cancel your subscription on your old account, in case you have a Premium account.


Should do the trick. Let us know if you have further questions.


Have a nice day.
