Strange Username when creating spotify account

Strange Username when creating spotify account






My Question or Issue

I just created a new Spotify account and when asked for username i entred alt0134Priest (which is my nickname) but when logging into my account is see that my actual username is : 08yqycg2iohmg8yr24wqh3meg (picture 1)


Strangely, when going anywhere else on the spotify website, the username I typed is displayed instead of the "profil" button (picture 2)


When connecting to my account I am forced to use my email address since the username doesn't work.


 Is there anyway i could get my actual username tu work ?

Hey @alt0134Priest, and welcome to the community.

Hope you're doing great! 


Thanks for the screenshots. What you're seeing is normal, and right now, it isn't possible to change it. If you don't like that username, there are some alternative steps which you can learn more about here.


I hope that helps. If you need help with anything else, just let me know 🙂
