[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!

Almost 7 years. Almost an entire decade that this feature has been requested to be implemented. I have someone following me that I absolutely do NOT want to see or have listening or keeping tabs on what I listen to, while I have others that I like to talk about the music we're listening to. There is nothing I can do about it - and it's to the point where I might have to make another account and lose a lot of the algorithm's interest and music collections I've curated. And if gets to that point I'd rather just switch services.

We're still waiting! It's been two years since your last update. This stuff really isn't hard, you just don't want to make PAYING customers happy.

This is in the top 10 feature requests. A good service listens to it's users if it wants to survive long-term.

Please include it so that you can't see people in your followers list. Or you can also keep unwanted people away from you.

 

Make the paying costumers happy!

Had the same problem here too. Go to the top right of the page (to the right of the title) and click the three buttons and find and click unsubscribe.

 

Also WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP

Total**bleep** that I cannot block or remove followers. 
Or even clear my "Recent Activity" from my Homepage. 
This has been a Spotify problem for years.  No resolution or progress, which tells me that there is a strong business reason they do NOT want to provide this feature, their listeners themselves be damned. 
Every other Spotify response like "we're thinking about it" is a LIE.
Their revenue model depends upon being able to connect users and/or see how songs are being shared via recent activity. 
They CAN NOT or WILL NOT provide this privacy feature.
All other reasons given by paid Customer Non-Service employees are greedy, corporate LIES.
