How to change your Spotify username


(Pocket-lint) — If you’re looking to change your Spotify username, then there are some steps you can take to do it without a brand new account. It’s not immediately obvious how you do it though, so we’re here to help guide you through the steps to change your username. 

It is worth noting though that your username and display names are different things. If you’re having trouble logging in, then using your email is the best way to access your account.

Your display name meanwhile, is what appears on your profile and what people can see from your public playlists when you share them. So if you’re looking to update that then follow these steps.
