Accidental sharing of a track

I was going to send a track to a Spotify friend, instead it got shared on my Spotify feed and Facebook. The Facebook part I could remove from the website, but the track along with my message is for everyone who follows me to see now! And it can't be removed from my Spotify profile or feed! That's incredibly stupid. If something gets shared by mistake, there should be a way to remove it. So annoyed right now. Is there any way of fixing this?

Hey! Welcome to the community :)

You could try asking the Spotify team directly using the online contact form and see if they can remove it for you, althought I am not sure it is possible!

Re: Accidental sharing of a track

The same thing just happened to me.

 

Why can't it be removed?

 

It seems that there's no way to edit a profile any more (other than just age, name, etc). There used to be a button on the profile page that let the user add or remove playlists and things like that. Where has it gone?!

 

This is not a good thing.

You can change the privacy of all of your playlists from your profile. The privacy setting is below each cover image ;)

I don't know, that is something you would need to ask Spotify since there is no way to do it in the current client. If you would like to suggest it as a future feature, I would suggest you head over to the Ideas Exchange and suggest it! 

 

Some people have reported that if you untick the "SHare my activity.... with my followers on Spotify" option in the Edit > Preferences menu and then restart your client and then re-enable it again that data will dissappear from your friends feed, but I have never tested it myself.

That actually worked, but I haven't tried to reactivate sharing and then seeing if it comes back up.
