Question About Usernames

Question About Usernames

I'm not fully sure if this it the right forum, though I do hope it is.  This isn't really an issue, but more of a curiosity. 


I understand that the randomly generated usenames are to allow for a "improved performance". What I was wondering is if anyone knows how it improves it? For me personally it seems like a hassle and an eye sore, but I'm wondering if I'm missing the reason for it to be useful.


Thank you all!

Hey @hj-t_s964eh4r, and welcome to the community.

Hope you're doing great!


I understand your concern. As mentioned by Spotify: "As we look to improve the overall Spotify experience, we’re now automatically generating usernames, hence the random numbers and letters", explains that Spotify is always looking to improve and make thing better.


If you need more help with usernames, I'd recommend checking out this support article for more info.


I hope this helps. If you need anything else, just let me know 🙂
