We all have two or three playlists on Spotify we would prefer our listening habits of be left private. With the recent changes to Facebook and the new integration with the various music services, hiding your guilty pleasures has become somewhat of a hassle.
Up until now, the only available solution to prevent your music selection from being displayed on Facebook is somewhat permanent. Thankfully, Spotify has rolled out a Private Listening feature to its desktop clients, allowing users to temporarily stop their music selection from being broadcast all over the Internet.
To enable Private Listening in Spotify on a Mac, go to your Menu Bar, click on Spotify, and select Private Listening.
If you are using Windows you can go to File > Private Browsing.
How easy is that? Now you can listen to '80s power ballads, Yo Gabba Gabba, or Justin Bieber until you can't stand it--all with the comfort of knowing that your secret is safe with Spotify.
To disable Private Listening, you only need to repeat the same steps above. You can follow the instructions in this post to completely stop Spotify from sharing with your Facebook account.
