[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 everyone,

We know there has been a lot of demand for this capability and we're changing the status to "under consideration."

While we consider how to best integrate an in-app solution, users can reach out to our 
Customer Support team to permanently remove an account from their followers list.

Seriously this is so bothersome, I would have deleted my account and started a new one if I had not already spent 4 years personalizing my algorithm. Please do this, every single worthy social media has a block feature. Even a pre-historic one like facebook has it jfc.

This feature is a must. I have Spotify followers whom I don't even know.

I don't want them on my account, they are mostly inactive and just spam.

I want to keep my followers minimum, I know I'm not the only one who want this feature so please add this feature. Thanks.

PLEASE make this a feature!! I have been a loyal Spotify user for nearly 6 years and do not want to have to delete my account - I now have over 100 bot accounts following me (randomized letter names, no profile pic, following 2000+ people, etc) and there is no way to remove them.

 

not to mention having exes/strangers follow you. it is very creepy and this has nearly made me want to switch to Apple Music.

It allows ex's to stalk you and see your state-of-mind by what kinda music listening to.
It allows them to see if you are online if actively listening to music (since you can't make Private Mode permanent), so if they are sending you texts at the same time they know you are actively avoiding them, further angering them.

I don't have these issues (as a man, we don't really worry about such things), but I would think women would be interested in this especially.

Spotify please fix; protect your users!
