Random Devices Connecting To Account

Random Devices Connecting To Account




United States of America


My Question or Issue

Random phones keep connecting to my Spotify account and kicking me out from the music I am playing, when I look at the devices connected its always a different name (ie. Ivy’s IPhone). In my device management I am unable to forget the device or kick them off. 

I have attempted to sign out of all devices through the website and change my password multiple times to no avail. The most recent time I reset my password, I logged back into Spotify on my phone and within the first 30 seconds of my listening, my music was paused and when I checked I was yet again connected to a random iPhone. 

It has gotten to the point where Spotify is unusable for me and I cannot even get through a song without it connecting to another device.

Hey @blakeland,


Thanks for your reply in this thread.


In this case, we suggest you follow the steps you can find here to protect your account.

Additionally, make sure to log in to your account page, scroll down, and select SIGN OUT EVERYWHERE. This way you’ll sign out from every device in which your account is open.

Note: Keep in mind this can take up to 1 hour to take effect everywhere.

We'll be on the lookout for your replies.

Take care!

i'm done with spotify, enough is enough, I'm not on shared network I'm using mobile data from my phone. during 15 minuts drive to work my music randomly starts playing on 7-8 random devices that i happen to pass by on my way to work and back, it doesn't make any sense can you remove this annoying feature? It's beyond frustrating at this point. I've tried every suggestion from the internet and nothing seem to work. it looks like devs know about this problem for a long time and do nothing to solve it


I’m having this same issue and I’m about yo lose it. I drive 2 hours a day for work and Spotify WAS ny savior but the constant switching to random phones is infuriating! I almost got into a car accident trying to switch back.
