Hi,

When my name is googled, my Spotify playlists etc show up in search results. How can I prevent this from happening?

My account is not linked to facebook.

Thanks!

Thanks for letting me know.

 

Unfortunately, there is no way to make the profile private or prevent it from showing up on Google, but you could set up a new account with a different username that doesn't contain your full name.
