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?

Wow.  Way to make things more confusing.  Why bother to ask for a username if you are not going to use it.

Idk, but my username is just random, I know for a fact I put my name and not 30 different characters. Idk if I logged in with Facebook, but I can sign in without it, so I don’t think I did. HELP, it’s hard to look for my music when I don’t have my phone
