Currently, anyone can follow anyone's account. There is no way to prevent someone from following you. If someone has a follower they do not want to see what music they are listening to, they have to go on private and prevent all their other followers from viewing their listening data. This issue would be minimized if there were private accounts, you could block someone, or create a "special friends list" where only certain people can view your streaming data.

I think this is a really good idea. I don't want some stranger to see which artist I follow or what music I like to listen to. Or even who my friends are. Only the people I accepted to follow me should be allowd to see my followers, the artist I follow and what I'm listening too.

The account may be private and ours playlists not available to all the followers . 
its so uncomfortable we dont be able to stay private and with no followes. I dont want to share my musics.

when someone blocks you, they can still see your profile. and if you block someone, they can still log into like a burner account. so, having a private account feature would fix this issue so nobody is uncomfortable of potential viewers on their account 🙂

I have the same issue where I want to only share my music with my followers and nobody else but unfortunately they can make a second account to see my music anyways
