Random playlist subscriptions appearing in my account??

Hi, so I keep noticing new subscriptions to random playlists each time I log into my account.  I am the only person that uses my account and I do not have it synced across any mobile devices.  I am the only one with access to the interface.  

 

In either case, I delete the subscriptions and then a few hours or sometimes days later a slate of new playlist subscriptions appears.  I obviously am not subscribing to these.  

 

Has anyone had this issue before?  Is it some kind of bug?   I changed my password, etc.. and the same thing still occurs!! What the heck??

EDIT:  THIS WORKED.  NO MORE RANDOM PLAYLISTS

 

 

On the desktop version... I clicked on “APPS” on the left side of the window.

 

I noticed a number of apps that have access to my profile including Facebook, Alexa...... and a very curious app I don’t recal signing up for names “Artist Explorer”

 

the description for for the app says “this app will create playlist with related artists"

 

I just revoked access. Hopefully this will help.

TRY DISCONNECTING FACEBOOK FROM SPOTIFY COMPLETELY.

 

THIS ALSO WORKED.

I haven't approved any apps (as found under the "apps" menu) and I still get these random playlists.  This is really annoying!

Man, where exactly is that 'app' button? I just can't see it (using the desktop version)

Did the solution and 2 weeks later it still added 6 new playlists 😞

I have the same issue and it freaked me out because I thought someone had hacked my account. So I logged out of all devices and changed my password. However, today I open my app and a new playlist popped up “This is: Queen”. I’m getting really irritated that I pay for this service and random playlists show up on my account. Everything below “Ashley’s Reggaeton” is what was added to my list of playlists.

Having the same problem here. Appeared once a few weeks ago, I got subscribed to 4 playlists called "PLEASURE: " and then some genre I don't remember since I immediately removed them, logged off of all my devices and change my password.

Today I check again and I see that I'm subscribed to "PLEASURE: Good Vibes" by dapjs

this is one of the playlists of last time and I can't explain myself how this could have happened.

Any solutions?

i'm getting that too, and they're all full of rap and pop despite the fact that pretty much all i listen to is either metal, classic rock or progressive rock.

 

that said, they keep putting a workout playlist in there called "beast mode", perhaps they're trying to tell me something.

Have the exact same problem with beastmode etc. So annoying. Anyone know how to fix this?

I noticed this happening several months ago and haven't really figured out how to make it stop. I deleted the playlist "wepa" but I still keep getting notifications sent to my email and through Spotify that the person who made the playlist is adding tracks to it. It's incredibly frustrating, because I don't know who this person is and don't share her taste in music.

Random playlists from people I have not friended or followed appear in my left-nav section of playlists...How'd they get there?

mjadams - Just moved your post over to this more relevant thread. Have you seen the playlist recommendation box that David posted

I just started seeing this as well. As far as I Know my account hasn't been compromised. I change my password regularly, and don't log in on public computers.

 

I've been subscribed to:

 

Billboard Hot 100

Hipster Soul

RS Playlist

 

None of these did I subscribe to.

 

Edit: As far I know I didn't click on the playlist reccomendation engine. If I did, then it was accidental and went unnoticed. To my knowledge I've never seen that screen before. When would it normally pop up?

For me every morning I find a lot of new playlists under my "recently played"
I don't know how they got there and it annoys me....
Its:

Nice Morning with Smooth Jazz

Morning Music

Sunday Morning Running Workout Session

Morning Mediation Music

 

And they're mostly the same....
I'm really annoyed by now,

Cause I just want to start my last playlist again, and not search for it for awhile.

 

I have no apps connected, I disconnected facebook, disconnected all devices and changed my password.

This fixed it for 2 days  and now the problem is back.

Billboard top 200 is the only one I can remember.. I erased them as well.. too fast perhaps.

 

Anyhow, I've got the same problem with playlists added to my account, but I haven't seen that window with pre-nicked squares for albums; which seems to be the reason for most of the users experiencing the same problem.
