Spotify is currently one of the largest music streaming platforms in the world with over 286 million active users and if you’re one of them and stuck with a gibberish username, which you want to change, then we are here with a step-by-step guide on how to change Spotify username.


How To Change The Username On Spotify

Although Spotify doesn’t let you change the username if you’ve created an account on Spotify itself, you can change the display name by connecting your account to Facebook. Apart from that, you can also sign up on Spotify via Facebook and let the Spotify team know that you want to transfer stuff from your older account to the newer one.

Sign Up With Facebook To Get That Username

If you don’t have an account yet, all you need to do is.

  1. Visit the Spotify website and click on Sign up.

Creating A New Account And Transferring The Data

How can we help you

You will be asked a couple of basic questions and if they verify that you are the owner of the old account, they’ll transfer all the data to your new account. But, before doing this, you need to first close your current Spotify account and if you have a subscription, you’ll need to cancel it before closing the account.
