How to Change Your Spotify Username

While your username can be changed on other online social platforms, Spotify doesn’t let you change it, especially if you’ve already created an account. But, you have other options.

Spotify lets you use your email address or Facebook account during the sign-up stage. When you sign up with your email address, Spotify creates a username automatically in the form of random numbers and letters that many people don’t like.

However, if you opt to sign up using your Facebook account, Spotify will display your name on Facebook.

Create a New Account

Spotify’s system maps to account playlists, which makes it difficult to change your username. But, with a new username, you can create a new account, then contact the customer support team at Spotify so they can transfer everything to your new account, including your playlists. To do so, you need to close your current Spotify account first. If you have a subscription, you will have to cancel it before the account is closed.

Once that’s done, create a new account with your new username. Please note that you cannot use a username twice, even if you closed the old account.

Change Your Display Name

While you can’t change your Spotify username, you can create a custom display name that replaces the username where it shows on your profile, app, playlists, and Friend Activity.
