Hey @user-removed,

 

Thanks for asking about this here! 

 

The username of an existing Spotify account cannot be changed. If you decide to create a new account, a username combining numbers and letters will be created automatically. It will be visible only to you. This is happening due to security reasons.

 

You will also get a display name. This is what all users will see when they come across your account. You can choose a display name in the 'What should we call you?' field during sign up

 

As to your music - you won't lose it. If you wish to have a different username, you must create a new account and you can transfer all of your music to it. You can read more about it here.

 

Last but not least - it's very important that you cancel your subscription on your previous account and subscribe to Premium on the new account. If you have subscribed to Spotify through a partner of ours, you must reach out to them so they can fix this for you. 

 

We hope this info helps. 

 

Keep us posted!

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to


You would cry too if it happened to you

 

 

Actually I wouldn't cry over not being able to change my username.

As probably some wise ancient Chinese person said: There is a work-around for everything.
