My Question or Issue

Dear Spotify team,

I am writing to express my concern over my Spotify account being repeatedly blocked for alleged "unauthorized use" of the service. As far as I know, I have not engaged in any activity that violates the Spotify Terms of Service, and I have not made any unauthorized copies of Spotify content that can be played outside of the app.

I have tried to investigate the matter and found no evidence of suspicious activity or any unauthorized access to my account but found nothing suspicious. But the blocking continues.

I depend on Spotify for my daily music streaming, and the repeated blocking of my account is causing me significant inconvenience and frustration. I kindly request that you review my account and lift any unjustified blocks or restrictions on my account. I also ask that you provide me with a clear explanation of the specific actions or behaviors that have led to these blocks, so that I may avoid any such behavior in the future.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. I look forward to hearing back from you soon.

Sorry to hear this. Something similar happened to me and they disabled my account. I've been emailing them for 3 months and they don't respond to any questions. They won't even respond to my requests for a copy of my data. Idk how a business can operate like this with zero customer service.

It seems Spotify's Windows app is quite aggressively looking for any type of "recording-like" activity going on in the computer while Spotify playback is active. Not sure how clever this system is though - could it mistake a Teams/Zoom meeting for "ongoing recording"? What about multi-channel / multiple sound devices?
