Last week I was at my neighbors and I made contact with their Spotify Connect speakers.
Everytime I open spotify it wil play the music from their speakers instead of my iPhone (Even when I'm on my own WiFi network or without a WiFi network). Please say there is an option to delete the speakers from my iPhone (and also my iPad now)!
Solved! Go to Solution.
spotfy replyed and first they tried to blame Denon as I'm a HEOS user and don't like that friends can play music from distance to my system.
I can't get some friends Yamaha A/V-receiver out of my account. I have tried "sign out everywhere" but it comes back.
I sent the link to this thread to spotify support, but I don't think they really care.
I got p****d and canceled my Premium subscription today.
John, I have just had the same discussion with support after finding this thread. I expressed to them what a bad idea this was and the security issues but found the exact same response you got, basically "stiff - thats how it works" and if you don't like it post a suggestion on our "ideas board". To clarify my issue was that my friends had connected to my wifi nework and with their own phone and own spotify account then played music to my spotify connect enabled spreakers. They were then able to play to those speakers any time they liked from anywhere they liked, they no longer had to be connected to my wifi network and I had absolutly no control to stop them. Working in the IT industry I cannot believe this is allowed and I have no control over this. Support told me to fix the issue I should factory reset my spotify connect enabled speakers which is absurd!
I have no problem with users being able to play to my speakers but it should only ever be available while they are on my LAN!
I have cancelled my spotify subscription and my IT collegues are doing the same. Probably won't make any difference but like you say, but everyone should be aware of how this works to make their own informed decision.
