Hey all,

 

Thanks a lot for adding screenshots and describing the issue in such a detailed way! We appreciate your effort.

 

Here are some measures you can take to secure your Spotify account.

 

If you have tried the steps to reset your Spotify account's, Facebook's and email (associated with Spotify)'s password but none of these helped, feel free to reach out to support.

 

As for the songs that you keep getting in your Recently Played, you can report any fraudulent songs that cannot be found on Google here. Meanwhile, you can rest assured that we take these reports very seriously and all fraudulent content will be taken down eventually.

 

Keep us posted!

What are we supposed to report the songs/artists as?  The reason choices are:

Offensive, Violent or Inappropriate Content
Copyright
Trademark
Personal Image or Identity

 

none of those really meet the reason we are reporting these songs.

I have the same issue.

Like some folks said before, this is not our end problem. We fixed our possibly breached data like email, passwords, usernames... and things still happening.

 

Here's my proof also.

From "Billy Eilish" to "TAKOncierto". I won't pay a Premium subscription with this issue around. I'm not risking my money with this.

I've been having this exact same problem for a few days now. Originally the songs that were showing up appeared to be fake, but today amongst the fake albums in my recently played was "Beastie Boys - License to III"...so I'm also getting real music as well. It doesn't seem to happen while I'm in the app, but I open the app and there's random music there. I have changed my password, logged out of all devices. If this persists I think I will cancel my premium subscription because I don't want my information to be compromised and reading through this thread, it doesn't sound like spotify has a solution to this issue that dates back at least 8 months...

 

Asking me to open a new account is quite excessive. If there is any solution to this problem, please let me know as it's a huge annoyance to have random things showing up in my music! 

 

I've never had my music change while I was listening to it, I've had times where my spotify will just randomly turn off and I don't know why.

I have the same problem for several months now trying to clean it up.  Including "**bleep** music" playlist showing up next to my "Classical Essentials" - funny until my 5 year old clicks on it.  The security in Spotify is very poor - I am going to cancel as I have brought this up several times and they have NOT been helpful at all.  I also am in IT and use 2 factor and complex passwords everywhere.  Shows there is a serious security issue in the software.  Very unimpressed.

We recently dealt with this type of situation on my wife's phone... Random Russian songs would appear in her "Recently Played".  Additionally, when she would be playing a song, it would just change back to another Russian track.  After hours of searching for answers we just started toggling the settings... the one that did the trick for her was disabling the Facebook Ads.  After disabling Facebook Ads, the problem has not occurred since...  Almost looks like the Ads were exploited/hacked.

Hi @DrkIris,

 

Thanks for sharing your experience!

 

We're glad to hear that after the changes you've made, the issue hasn't occurred again.

 

This could happen because of a breach on another service. If you use the same password for multiple services, they all have the potential to be compromised if one has a security breach. With that in mind, it's always advisable to use a strong and different password for each service you use.

 

Let us know if you have more questions or need help with anything else Spotify - related 🙂

Hi, i recently also facing this issue too, its kinda shocking even when you are using spotify premium, i just curious that does spotify really got bug or got hacked? even i just want to listen to one song it turns out so hard, i have to unliked 100+ songs each time i listen. 

another issue is when i was playing the song in my playlist, it will randomly skip to any random song that i never ever listened or liked before. 

Seriously hope spotify would fixed this issue as soon as possible.
