If you have been using Spotify for a long time, you may need to change your name, because it has bored you or because now you have another user and you want to use it in this application. The vast majority of social networks allow you to modify this part and Spotify also, we will explain how to do it.
If you enter your account you will see that there is no easy way to change it, or at least this option is not easily found. The username is the identity that everyone will know you by on Spotify, so having one that you like is important.
Before you start, you should know that if you signed up for Spotify with your email address, the system will automatically generate a username. On the other hand, if you joined the platform with Facebook, you should have chosen your username or used the one you had on Facebook.
It is for all the above, that many users have a name that they have not chosen and that is why it is important that you know how to change it without having to migrate your lists to a new Spotify account.
Steps to follow to change the name of Spotify
This is the method to do it:
- Open Spotify, go to the Home tab, and go to Settings (top right in the form of a gear).
- Click on the option “View profile” and then on “Edit profile”.
- Now press the name and write the one you want.
- Then click on “Save.”
With the previous steps, you can also change your profile picture if you do not have or want to put another. If you have connected your Facebook account with Spotify, your name of the social network will be displayed.
But if you put a Spotify profile name with the previous steps, the name that will appear will be that and not your Facebook name, so it is in your hands to choose which one you want to see.
