It’s normal to change your online username at some time in your life. Your Spotify credential can be changed as well if you use the platform. It’s simple, and I’ll teach you exactly how to accomplish it.
Spotify allows you to change your “display name,” to be specific. You’ll see this in your user profile and on your playlists. You can’t actually change your “username,” but you can modify your display name to reflect your new identity.
Changing Your Display Name
As a reminder, your Spotify username isn’t the same as your display name, so let’s get that out of the way first: As soon as you log into Spotify on a computer, tablet or smartphone, your display name will appear.
Changing your Spotify display name is a piece of cake compared to changing your username. In addition, the display name can only be changed on a mobile device or tablet by using the Spotify app on that device. To put it another way, this is how you go about it.
1. Open the Spotify app on your mobile device/tablet.
2. Tap “Your Library.”
3. Click the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the screen.
4. Select your profile (“View Profile”).
5. Tap “Edit Profile.”
6. Tap your current display name.
7. Change it to whatever you want.
8. Tap “Save.”
Your display name is how you’ll appear to other people on Spotify. However, changing the Spotify username is a completely different story.
So, Can You Change Your Spotify Username?
Unfortunately, Spotify does not allow users to change their usernames. Although each account’s username is unique, it cannot be customized. It is assigned by Spotify and is made up of a random string of numbers and letters, making it difficult to remember.
As a result, a username cannot be changed – it is permanently associated with that account. If, on the other hand, you desire a more meaningful and memorable Spotify username, you can establish a new account with a semi-customized username by signingup with your Facebook/Apple/Google account.
