How to hide followers

How to hide followers

Hi!

I have a problem. As you can see in subject, I'm looking how to hide ONLY followers section in my profile. I don't want to do my profile completely prive, I still want to share what I'm listening to right now to my friend, but I don't wanna show them who's I'm following. Here I can show you it is possible to do:

As you can can see "Dejmian" has FOLLOWERS section on his profile

And "Dominik" has only PUBLIC PLAYLIST, and FOLLOWERS section.

Just in case, both guys have their profiles public.

I was looking for answers and a lot of options, and I don't know what to do.

Can someone help me please? 🙂

As of now, there's no way to hide your followers from your profile. You can only choose which of your playlists are visible to others, but not which your followers are, or just hide your followers in general.

Hi @Oldschool_boy,

 

Thanks for posting in the Spotify Community!

 

To add to @Jethro_'s reply, there is currently an idea in the Idea Exchange of the Spotify Community for having the option to set the list of followers/following on one’s Spotify profile to private. While the status of this idea is currently “Closed  - Not Enough Votes,” it can become an active idea again if it gains sufficient votes.

 

I would recommend adding your +VOTE to this idea if it’s something you’re interested in; the more votes an idea gets, the likelier it is that Spotify will implement it, and you can read more about how feedback on ideas reaches Spotify here.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions, and have a good day!
