Shared private playlist visible when friend plays playlist


Shared private playlist visible when friend plays playlist

Casual Listener

I have a private playlist I have shared with a friend (not collaborative playlist). Everything works fine but when they play my playlist, it shows up on their listening activity despite it being a private playlist. Is there a way to make it not show up?

Hi @Jojo197,


Thanks for reaching out in the Community about this.


Pravete playlists are not displayed on your Profile and other users can't edit their content, however if someone has the link to it they can still play content from the playlist and it is still visible in the friend feed.


Currently there is no way to hide it completely.
