Find Spotify Username
Many Spotify Music users have asked us how to find their own Spotify Username so they can share playlists with friends or join custom ones. It’s simple to find your Spotify name but you need to know where to look for it. Below are the steps required to find out what your username is.
First of all, if you do not have a Spotify account, you will need to create one. By doing so, you can access your profile and obtain your unique username as well as upload playlists from any computer with an Internet connection.
how to search spotify users
Once you have an account, the next step is to sign into Spotify. Then go to www.spotify.com and look at the top right section of the screen. There should be a small image which resembles your current listening mood or a mosaic of album artwork from artists you follow or similar music-related imagery. If you hover your mouse cursor over this image, you should see a small grey tooltip popup appear which tells you your current Spotify Username.
This is also what will show up if visitors to your profile hover their mouse cursor over the “Following” button on your profile’s main page. They can’t actually search for your username, but they could always check the image at the top right of the page.
How to find your Spotify username fast
The best way to find your username is to create a playlist on Spotify so you can easily access it at any time. This will also allow you to view the number of times each song has been played, as well as skip and delete songs from it using the Spotify program itself.
On the right-hand side of every playlist page is an “Edit” button. Clicking this will give you the option to change the playlist’s name or delete it altogether, but most importantly for this article, you can also view its unique Spotify Username by clicking on the grey “View Playlist Profile” button below it.
What to do if you can’t remember your Spotify username
If you’ve forgotten your username, don’t worry. You can recover it by following the steps outlined above but clicking on the “View Playlist Profile” button next to one of your playlists instead. If you have multiple playlists, this will allow you to view them all until you find the correct one.
If for some reason that doesn’t work, you can always go to http://www.spotify.com/usernames where you can find out what your username is by entering any email address associated with the account into the box provided.
How to change your Spotify username
Changing your username is very easy. You can do so by clicking on the “Edit” button next to one of your playlists, then clicking again on the grey “Change Username” link located directly beneath it. There are rules in place which prevent certain characters from being used as a username, but if you follow these guidelines then you should be able to change it without any problems.
You can also update your username in the event of it becoming invalid, for example if you already have another playlist with that name or it contains prohibited symbols or words. You might also want to do this if you no longer want people to see the old one.
Tips for creating a strong and unique Spotify username
The best way to create a strong and unique Spotify username is simply to use your own name. If you’re not already using your real name, this is probably the easiest option available. However, if your name doesn’t fit the usual naming convention for usernames or contains prohibited symbols or words then you’ll need to make some changes.
