This is a serious security hole I've found on my Spotify Connect. If you have connected your Spotify to other devices, and now I'm able to control and connect that device even though I'm on an another network and on a far distance from the device.
The below image shows that I'm able to connect to device below the one I'm currently listening at. The other device belongs to a relative on a complete other location and network. Also confirmed that I could start the other device, that was on standby mode.
Running Spotify 18.104.22.1683.g34a58dea
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
- So you are telling me that this is as designed, even though I'm currently on a complete different location and network from the device?
Yes, that is correct. Spotify Connect is designed to work on either local wifi or across the Internet.
Since you were indeed connected on that device through WiFi earlier and you don’t have access to it, you can ask the owner of the device to make sure you are logged out.
Once you have been logged out you can't connect to the device again unless you connect to the same wifi network.
I hope this makes things more clear.
If you still have some questions I will be happy to answer.
