Private listening

Anyone who follows you on Spotify can see what you’re listening to in real time, unless you turn on a Private Session.

Pick a device below to learn how to draw the curtains.

Note: Anything you play privately may still factor into some of the personalized mixes we make for you (but not Discover Weekly).

  1. Click  in the top right corner of the app.
  2. Select Private Session. Your picture changes to show the private session is active.

The Private Session ends when you restart Spotify, or after a long period of inactivity.

  1. Tap Home 
    Got Premium? Tap Your Library .
  2. Tap Settings .
  3. Under Social, switch Private Session on.

The Private Session ends when you restart Spotify, or after a long period of inactivity.
