Update your privacy settings on the desktop version of Spotify

For many users, the social experience is part of why they choose to stream music on Spotify. Others want to lock down their privacy settings and use parental controls to limit their children’s exposure to explicit lyrics. From the Spotify desktop app, navigate to the Account menu by clicking the downward-facing arrow next to your name and user icon. You can control whether your playlists, listening activity and recently played artists are public, as well as disabling content with explicit lyrics.
