While it is possible to change your username and password on other online social platforms, Spotify doesn’t let you change your username, especially if you already have an account.
If you sign up with your email address, Spotify automatically generates a username in the form of random numbers and letters, which is what most users don’t like because they want to be able to choose their own usernames.
