[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!

It will NEVER be implemented.
Stop the LIES, Spotify! 
Tell the truth.
Your business model DEPENDS upon being able to connect users and seeing how songs are shared via 'Recent Activity'.  To allow customers to opt out would seriously impact your back-end revenue.  
Just another good app ruined by Corporate Greed.

It's too bad they still didn't make it available. Knowing that my stalker might find me and know what I'm listening to is creepy too, it doesn't matter if he doesn't contact me, I just don't want this person to have any informations about me so that he has nothing to cling to. And music that I listen to is a huge thing.

I am also for this option to delete any followers. Please implement this. I support!

This shouldn't be in voting, this already should be a option...

Wow I am quite shocked that this idea was created in 2013 and still nothing happened. I think that blocking followers is a normal right in social media. Every application has it. And still spotify does nothing about it even though it's popular. And I read that this idea should have 50 k likes in order to improve it. How can this happen if not every user is in this spotify community? If spotify make a voting who would want someting like that in application I think everyone would want it. I would really really appriciate if someone do something about it.

  1. Please allow us to remove and block followers. An ex who has stalked me on social for years is still lurking on my playlists. I want to share my music w/ friends and the community, but I want to feel safe too. The idea that he can still moniter me makes me not want to use spotify anymore. Please!
