Username and display name

Your username

Your username is designed to identify you on Spotify, so you can't change it.

You don’t need your username to log in. Instead, use your email address and password or log in with the method you used to sign up e.g. Facebook, Apple, or your phone number.

Your display name

A display name replaces the username where it shows on your profile, app, and playlists.

Note: You can’t use your display name to log in.

Change your display name

  1. Tap Home .
  2. Tap Settings .
  3. Tap View profile.
  5. Tap your display name to change it.
    Tip: You can also add or change your profile photo here. 
  6. Tap Save.
  1. Click  in the top-right corner.
  2. Select Profile.
  3. Click on your profile name and edit the details.
  4. Click SAVE.

Note: You can also connect to Facebook to display your Facebook name. If you add a Spotify display name, that will show instead of your Facebook name.
