[Social] Block Followers

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.

  • Followers and following - Turn this on to allow Spotify listeners to see what other listeners you follow and which listeners follow you. Default: on (for those 18 or older), default: off (for those younger than 18)


Great idea! what would also be a great idea was if spotify brought back the playlist radio feature which they removed just recently.

Bring playlist radio back, vote here:


Looks like were going to need some more privacy setting controls:


Why were these weird accounts following a bunch of people on Spotify? - The Verge


I want to be able to remove bots from my followers list. I have not seen yet such a feature on the desktop app.


there is someone on spotify who i want to block, however they blocked me first. they have access to viewing my profile, as spotify allows you to view blocked users. i really just need to block them so they can stop stalking me.
