random letters and numbers show up as my username?

I recently sent a link to a friend of one of my playlists so she can listen to it and she mentioned that my account username is a bunch of random letters and numbers which is displayed once the link opened up the playlist. Is there a way to make this problem disappear and have my actual username show instead?

Hey @ashcolette-,


As Spotify looks to improve the overall experience, they’re now automatically generating usernames, hence the random numbers and letters.


You don’t need to remember this to log in. You can log in with just your password and the email address associated with your account.


During sign up, you were able to personalize your account by creating a profile name that’s displayed in the app. There are no limitations to a profile name, so you were able to choose any you like 🙂
