Is it Possible to Delete Your Spotify Listening History?
If you used Spotify’s old desktop app, there was a way to remove songs from the recently played list.

This also means that songs you play in private are also shown on the recently played list.

It’s also possible to start private sessions from this page so that you can do that, too. The music you play in private sessions doesn’t affect what you say about other things.

Questions that people ask most often
Q: Is it possible to use Spotify in a private session so that songs don’t show up in my listening history?
The songs you play in private sessions show up in your listening history despite what people think. When you set up private sessions, Spotify doesn’t show your friends what you’re listening to and doesn’t make song suggestions based on what you’re listening to.
Q: Is there a way for me to see Spotify listening history for other people?
No, Spotify doesn’t show the listening history of other people. However, you can see someone else’s recently played artists if they have chosen to show them. You can also see what your friends who follow you are playing from the right sidebar in the desktop app.
Everyone can see what I listen to on Spotify.
If you have turned on the “Show my recently played artists on my public profile” toggle, other people may be able to see the artists you’ve recently played. But no one can see your listening history, even if you have turned on the toggle.
