Can't hide "Recently played artists"

I unchecked the "show the top artists I've been listening to" option because they're not even close to accurate, but I can still see them in my profile. I checked it from my roommates account and he can see it too.

Hello @blackone45!

 

Have you tried going here and making sure the "Show the top artists i've been listening to" is not a green check?

It looks like this when it is disabled:

Hope this helped :)

Can't find that checking box, searched all over. I have safari and mac, does that make a difference?

I tried this and it did not work for me :(
Can someone help me out? I contacted spotify about it and I haven't heard back.

That option is not listed under my preferences on my windows pc, iphone or ipad! Has Spotify eliminated this option completely?

I would just be happy if my "recently played artists" actually updated once in a while. I digress.. like you, I also searched for this option on my windows desktop version and also found no such option. Spotify removed it from that version I'm assuming?

Yeah, the check mark for this option is only in the web player but has vanished from everything else. I guess Spotify doesn't want user to hide this. Don't know why. It sucks for me because I'd like for my public profile to represent one specific gerene but I listen to a bunch of other stuff that results in conflicting themes on my profile because of the recently played artist thing that doesn't appear to update.

I just came across this thread as I noticed my profile displays recently played artists - although I've tried my hardest to make my profile private. I've also unchecked  that box saying "show top artists I've been listening to" on my web browser but it doesn't seem to do anything (I cannot find a similar option on my iPhone or Mac app. I really am not into sharing what I'm listening to at all.  Can you please advise how I can get to my profile to stop showing this (by the way random) list asap? If this basic feature is not an option, I willl have to cancel my premium account.
