What happens when you delete a Spotify playlist
There are a couple of things you need to know about deleting Spotify playlists. First, the playlist will completely disappear from your library. However, if you delete a playlist followed by other users, it will still be available to them.
It is important to understand this because it means that Spotify will only delete a shared playlist for you. This is because Spotify stores the shared playlists on its servers.
If you want to remove the playlist from everyone permanently, you need to delete all the tracks, title and cover. An alternative way to prevent them from accessing the playlist is to first make it private. To do this, go to the playlist page, tap the three-dot menu icon and select Make it private .
Finally, Spotify has another feature called Remove from profile . This doesn't delete your playlist, it removes it from viewing on your profile. Note that Spotify only displays public playlists on your profile. The private ones are always hidden.
