[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.

Hey folks.

We're changing this status to good idea.

 

We definitely think this is a strong idea, however it isn't in our current road map.
The teams behind our social features are aware that you're bringing your feedback here and we're working closely with them to bring forward all your comments and concerns.

If there are any updates on blocking Spotify followers we will let you know here first.

Thanks everyone!

PLEASE add this option to Spotify.
Most of us users must have unwanted followers - both for the account itself and their playlists. the private session and the secret playlists are great options in general, but not if you want to block some specific users instead of hiding all of your content.
Indeed, the only solution is to add the basic possibility of blocking others, like in any other social media.
thank you.

Yes we should be able to block someone or make our accounts private. There is this one person who is bothering me and I can't even report him. Even though I have the option to report I can't click it.

Considering this is a feature in almost all services with a friend/follower system, it seems like a big oversight that, after all these years, spotify is still without it.

Years later, still a good idea. Let's prioritize and implement this feature to block followers!

It's been years, and I love your devs, but please bring this feature now. ❤️ 

Spotify has social characteristics and it would be cool to either have them including a block feature or no follow options at all.

Have you considered the fact that your not doing this poses a serious safety concern to a lot of your followers? You think stalkers don’t see “gym” playlists and know where people are at that exact moment. I get you’re looking to make a buck, but this seems like a really risky move and at the expense of lots of peoples safety and well-being.

7500 votes and 7 years later, this still isn't a priority?

Deezer does have that function!

It is absolutely irresponsible to not have this feature available to protect users from cyberstalking and intimidation.
