Spotify members are currently unable to change their usernames — but you can change your password at any time.

Unfortunately, you can’t make this change in the mobile and desktop apps. To freely change your Spotify password, you’ll need to use an internet browser.

You can also always reset your password by clicking “Forgot My Password” when logging in, or by heading to this official password reset page. 

Here’s how to change your Spotify password. 

How to change your Spotify password through the website

2. Once you’ve logged in, click on your profile picture and name in the upper-right corner of the screen.

3. Click “Account.”
