How to make a Spotify playlist private


Spotify allows other users to see the playlists you create. If you want to keep your playlists hidden, you’ll need to make each playlist private in your account settings. We’ll show you how to do it from your desktop and mobile phone.

Later, you can make your playlists public again by choosing an option, if you wish.

Making a private playlist vs. Remove from profile

In 2022, Spotify began giving users the ability to “add” and “remove” playlists from profiles. Please note that deleting a playlist from your profile is different from making the playlist private. If it’s private, only you can access the playlist. Even if someone has liked your playlist in the past, they will no longer be able to find it.

However, removing a playlist from your profile simply makes it no longer visible on your public Spotify profile. Anyone who previously liked or found a link to your playlist will still have access to it, unless you make it private as well.

Make a private playlist on Spotify for desktop

On your desktop, use the Spotify app to completely remove your playlists from other users’ view.

To do so, first launch Spotify on your computer. Sign in to your account if you haven’t already.

In Spotify’s left sidebar, click the playlist you want to make private.

Select a playlist on the left.

On the playlist page, next to the user icon, click the three dots.

Select the three dot menu.

In the three-dot menu, select “Make Private”.

Choose "make it private" on the menu.

And ready. Spotify has hidden the selected playlist in your account, making it inaccessible to other users.

Later, to show the playlist, click the three-dot menu and choose “Make Public”.

Select "Make public" on the menu.

And that is.
