What is Spotify Private Session?

Private Session is a feature that allows you to browse and listen anonymously. This acts like an Incognito tab in a web browser. By default, your followers can see what you are listening to in their friends’ activity feed. Also, you can connect Spotify to Facebook, and friends in there can see your listening activities too. A private session can hide your activities from other persons. They can’t see your activities in their friends’ feed anymore when you are in a private session. Songs that you listen to during a private session aren’t included in Spotify algorithms. This means Spotify doesn’t recommend songs or create your daily, weekly mixes based on listening history in a private session. This is a good promise for your privacy.
