I did the usual Google search after experiencing the same issues with the same artist and after reading through some of the answers I find myself asking why is the same generic answer delivered every time an issue is posted seriously this issue is actually quite frustrating I have private playlists or as Spotify tag them secret and yet the same artist is able to repeatedly able to add songs to them, not once but we have a count of seven different occasions my account has not been taken over, I am not tech fresh here geez guys how hard is it to work out every single issue is identical the artist is the problem remove them and your issue disappears oh and before I get the generic here's the link answer already did that only have three people on my family account and no Facebook attached no third party apps either so let's see if we can fix it properly this time and work out how one artist is hacking your system to provide themselves with a popular status never followed don't even listen to the tracks I just delete them when they repeatedly show up and only in my personal playlists
Hi everyone! I see there's a lot of you with the same problem. Seems like my account was hacked...i've experienced everything you've all said. I tried blocking, eliminating the artist and nothing. I chabged my password on spotify, facebook, gmail, a lot of places i could think my accounts were link (also, i eliminated the FB-SF link and permissions) andit all stopped!
So it seems i was genuinely hacked ...
The think is, this 'artist' might had something to do with it. Also, i find it very strange the way it could play it's songs on a random play over and over again. This does not happen with other artists
Anyways, change your passwords ASAP!! Your credit cards are on the app and it could
A bunch of songs in a row from an artist called A.K keeps being added to my (only) playlist. I know for a fact I didn't add them and I've never listened to this artist before, and no one else has access to my account. It's on my desktop and my phone. If this is some kind of feature, why? I pay for premium. I hope it's a glitch.
I am in the same situation. This same artist (different Album) has been added to many of my playlists. I have had no verifications that my account has been accessed incorrectly and I've changed my password and the songs have been re-added. I believe this may be something on Spotify's end as I can't explain it.
Same here!! A.K with albums Testing en Playful has been added to most of my playlists and i's driving me crazy! I've deleted them many times, everytime I open one of my playlists the songs are back.
I'm hoping that Spotify will be able the fix this, it really takes away from easy listening to your favorite songs when you're forced to listen to music you don't want to hear and keep having to remove.
So, this has happened to me, with multiple playlists, both private and public, for some time now. Biggest problem one was one that I use as overnight music for my kids, starts playing this techno style electronic music, which is not soothing at all and is keeping them awake instead of helping them sleep. I removed the entries MANY times, and they continue to reappear. I went through my other playlists and found similar entries there as well, and removed them. Now, I have blocked the artist all together. Not that I mind his style of music, as, in the right venue and time, it would be just fine by me. It is more about the fact that it is being forceably added to my playlists, which I cannot allow or tolerate. Also, as the OP indicated, I was apparently following the artist, though I have never heard of this artist and have never chosen to follow them.
Before you say it, yes I have gone through all of the secure my account procedures and yes, it still persisted after that. I am not sure what kind of bug or exploit is being used to accomplish this, but it needs to be addressed and fixed immediately.
I still think is not a glitch and someone is hacking into spotify. It is such a rare artist and the fact that every day I keep seeing people with the same problem over and over again is very strange.
I was able to fix it, i'm not sure if it's due to the fact that I change passwords from EEEVERYWHERE (facebook, mail, spotify, eveything I could think of) or if spotify did actually block the artist for me ( I actually blocked it myself but I still appeared )
Today I received an email from spotify warning that someone from Russia gained access to my account. After all the password changing and etc, I realized that several songs from this A.K. were added to my playlists. And there isn't a easy way to report directly from A.K. page to Spotify, the options given don't include fake accounts...
