My Question or Issue

 

Hello, I was on my device, and I got a email that said, login location, and it said the login location was from Russia. I got a bit nervous because it made me wonder who was trying to get into my stuff from Russia. I got a email and it said to change your password, or log out of all accounts, and review your accounts. So, I logged out of all my accounts. I did not change my password. The login was not on my main Spotify account though, it was on another Spotify account that I had that does not have many things on it. 

 

Should I be concerned?

Same issue here except I changed my password when I got the same email yesterday then I got another email today saying they got in again! Lol is Russia out to get me and what does Russia want with my spotify account? Just in case I changed my FB password too bc to get into my spotify i have to log into FB. I told my dad and he thinks maybe the email was fake so I just wanna know if "no-reply@spotify.com" is your company email. I'll keep up to date if it happens again.

Hi @PSG_Anarchy

 

Most likely, there's a Spotify account associated with that email address. 

You can close it if you want with these steps

You can also check if you have any other accounts

 

Enjoy your day!

I don't really see how this helps because the reset password email nor the "your account got hacked" email tells me what account has been hacked or if I'm reseting the password to the ONLY Spotify account I know I have. Really wish I had a number to call because this message stuff is really gonna make me blow. No disrespect, I know you're trying your best but this type of communication isn't the best (personally).
