Although you can't directly remove a follower on Spotify, you can block people following you. Blocking someone removes them from your followers' list, and they won't be able to follow you again. You can block your followers on the Spotify desktop app so they can't follow you or see your activity.

  1. In the top-right corner on Spotify, click on your account name and select Profile.

Besides blocking followers, you can block anyone else with a Spotify profile. You can do this similarly to blocking people you follow.

If you want to block someone who may not follow you but has a Spotify profile, you can do this as well. The process is similar to blocking a follower.

  2. Under their picture and username on the user profile, select the ellipses icon.

  3. Select the Block option. If you don't see it, you may have already blocked them, or you're on an artist profile, which doesn't support blocking.

  4. Choose Block again in the confirmation window to block the user.

  5. If you wish to unblock the user, you can go back to their profile, select the ellipses again, and choose Unblock.

Spotify won't notify the user of you blocking them, and they won't be able to see your profile or any of your activity.
