How To Change Your Spotify Username

Your Spotify username is unique and, therefore, cannot be changed. You can only change your display name which is what will be shown on your profile and playlists. The only way to ‘change’ your username is to cancel your account and create a new one.

Spotify does not allow the option to change your username, only your display name. Your display name is the name that appears on your profile and playlists. Despite all this, the process to change your display name is a very straightforward one and can be done within a minute.

How to change your Display Name on your Desktop App or Web Player

First, I’ll show you how to change your display name via the desktop app or web player.

Step 1: Open the app

Open the Spotify app on your desktop or through the web player. Log into your account if you haven’t already done so.

Step 2: Go to your profile

Click on the arrow next to your username and a drop-down menu will appear. Then, select ‘Profile’ from the menu shown.

Step 3: Change your display name

All that’s left is to ‘click’ on your username. A menu will appear where you can type in your new display name. After doing so, just click ‘Save’.

How to change your Display Name on your Mobile, iPad, or Tablet Device

This process is easy to do, follow the necessary steps above, whether you’re on your mobile or PC, and change it to your desired name.
