Please fully implement "Sign-in with Apple", add ability to disable Spotify credentials.

It's nice to see that Spotify has taken steps to add the feature to create a new account or link an existing account to use Apple login credentials.

 

The problem here is however, the Spotify team has not taken the full measure to implement this for its security purposes. It's neglecting its user base that has been using their service and has music curation tastes built up over the years.

 

When you create a new account with your Apple account, there are no additional Spotify credentials tied to the account. When you link your Apple account

to an existing account, the Spotify credentials remain active.

 

This means that if someone ever gets ahold of my Spotify login credentials they can still login without the need to enter the 2FA method tied to my Apple account. This entirely defeats the security purpose of linking an external OAuth account.

 

Please add the ability to disable the Spotify login credentials once linking an Apple/Google/Microsoft account to an existing account.

I've updated the title since you've completely skipped the main point I was trying to make.

 

It doesn't matter what external login providers are available if the Spotify credentials remain active.
