My username is a bunch of random numbers!

Hi. So, I've been a spotify member for six months now and have had no problems until now. I just took a look at my profile and noticed that spotify displays not my name, but 1214123792 as my "username", which I do not like. When I signed up for spotify I connected to my facebook account and continued signing in with my email, just like I would for facebook. This caused my full name to represent my profile; which I'm okay with. Here's the thing that might have caused the problem: I just recently lost interest in facebook and temporarily deactivated my account, but I could still log in to spotify using my facebook information (email and password). I  checked my account settings and what not on the spotify website and saw that I was still connected to facebook. I get that spotify is for listening to music and it shouldn't matter how your profile appears, but it still bugs me. Solution?

Hello

My username suddenly changed to 214luzhoqrmn3kk2fzzflhu7q (spotify player, etc..) + black profile pic - Even though I can still see my correct name on my artist's page as Miguel d'Oliveira and pics are still there.

I never revoqued fb access. I think this nonsense happended when I chose a pasword (was logging in using fb only before)

Am I m stuck with that random string now?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Miguel

Hello Spotify Team

I would just like to ask why my username says it's 95l37ztt5gl5ap60f6f94zin3 when i go the website for account overview but when I go to the downloaded app version of spotify its has the name I chose "Lil_Veza" and the chosen profile picture is there anyway that you can fix this

All looks ok from here. Could just be a temporary blip with your client retrieving the data from Facebook.

I had two linked facebooks, one that was my normal account and one that was just a page. I deactivated the page but not my normal account. Since this has happened my username on my moblie device has changed to number however on my computer it still says my name. My friends have also not been able to find my profile when searching my name. the ID number for me is 12145163232

Hi Peter,

 

I just created a new spotify account and, during its creation, I have chosen an user name. However, when it was finished, my user name appeared as j3glgl9medcj9ugynk26ed3d2 and I cannot find a way to change it. I have no facebook account and I do not intend to use it. How can I have my name in the user name, please? 
Thank you
