[Social] Block Followers

Status: Implemented

I believe there should be a way to block people that are following you on Spotify. When blocked, the user will automatically unfollow you and will not be able to find you, or view your public playlists.


Blocking should be possible via both username and email address.

Hi everyone,


Thanks for coming to the Ideas Exchange, and sharing your votes and comments.


We’re pleased to confirm that all users now have the option to block another user on Spotify. With this update, you can actively block another user across desktop and mobile devices, preventing them from being able to see listening activity, public playlists, or view profile pages.


Here’s how it works:

  • When visiting another user’s profile, click on the   (...) button.
  • Select “Block” (or “Block User” on mobile) to block the user whose profile you are viewing.
  • This user will now be blocked and cannot access your page, public playlists or view your listening activity.
  • To unblock a user, click the Unblock option in the same menu.

We're always working hard to provide the best possible Spotify experience in a safe environment.

Please see here for more information.


Spotify will listen when it will be loosing profit.. It's sad

It should be implemented. I was suprised to find out that there's no such option...


I just want this feature to exist like on every other app with a social aspect, please Spotify devs just dedicate some time and resources to add this feature.


I have had issues with stalkers on other social media platforms and I shudder thinking about what if the same ones are the Spotify followers I have that I didn't ask for. I am on Chromebook and I'm glad it doesn't have the ability to see someone's listening history like the desktop or on Mac. Blocking in other social media is so helpful for mental health and peace of mind and someone's listening history and habits should be private for more than 6 hrs and be able to protect against unwanted followers as well.


Please, Spotify, add a feature for us to block and remove unwanted followers! I hate having to go into private sessions just because of 1 creepy person following me, yet I want to share my listening activity with other friends. It really limits me, having to hide from everyone just because of one person and it would be so constructive to be able to block and report unwanted followers. Thanks!


user should be in control, it is ridicoulous someone can follow you and you are not able to remove them. I have a follower and no idea who that is. it is a very basis privacy issue that an user should be able to remove a specific follower


there should be a blocking button, i need that , i have some followers (i don't know how they find my acc) with bad profiles.


If you have to post link into other sections of the forum, that should tell you Spotify doesn’t GAF about us or anything we want…. #wakeup #endcorporategreed


So obviously you're going to implement this soon but can we get any ETA? Because "Under consideration" aka coming soon has been the status for a few months now.
