How to change the username in Spotify?
You do not need to remember your username to log in to your Spotify account, which can be done from the Facebook account, email or the phone number you specified while creating the account.
Spotify generates a random series of numbers and letters if your account was set up via email or phone number. However, if you have used the Facebook account to register on Spotify, your Facebook name will be shown on Spotify account.
In case you still want to create an account with a custom Spotify username, you have the following options.
