My Question or Issue
Whenever I check my recently played list, there are usually new additions to the list while I have my Spotify closed. Usually they're from artists I've never heard of or they have super cheap album art. I end up deleting them from the list but I should have started a list. Here are some of the artists:
Israel Cipre - Sagaus
Dimension IV - Another Dimension IV
Picar de Rio - Beach Machine
Jolinder - Brain Scanner
Esteban Tetismo - Bida
When you search for any of these rando artists and albums in google, they don't exist at all. When you play any of the songs, it's all just unidentifiable music score.
I've gone to the "Someone has taken over my account" support page and done all the steps twice and still these mysterious artists keep showing up in my list.
I'm wondering if it's related to this article about hackers and access tokens.
Any tips or help would be much appreciated, it's a lil creepy they keep showing up in my recently played list.
Thanks for reaching out about this.
