First, open the app and tap on the Your Library tab at the bottom. Long-press on the playlist you want to erase and choose the Erase Playlist option.
To erase any playlist from Spotify on your desktop, click on the Your Library option on upper-right and click on the playlist you want to erase. When it’s open, click on the three dots under the playlist image and choose delete.
A Few Things to Keep in Mind
If you ever erase a playlist that others follow, it’ll still be available for them. If the reason you’re erasing a playlist is that you’ve shared it with too many users, you can make it private instead of erasing it.
