My Question or Issue

I have an issue where my display name won't show up for my logged in user. It only shows my username which is like a long range of random characters and doesn't really look nice. On all other devices (even web player) it shows correctly. This has been an issue for some months now, only on the desktop app.  It seems it is a bug?

Hey there @fosilla


Help’s here!


If you notice your username is shown instead of your display name make sure you try out all steps listed in this Spotify Answer. This way you can fix the issue by small changes in your account settings. 


In case this persists after trying the steps in the article you can send us some screenshots of how your display name looks when using the different Spotify platforms. You can attach images to your next response to us by using the Insert Photos option in the post editor. This will help us take a closer look and assist you further. 


Looking forward to your reply. Have a nice day!   

that happens every once in a hile. Just log out and back in again and your name should be correctly shown
