Spotify Premium [Login from China] Spotify Systems Compromised

I have recently received the second email of this type:


Location/City/Country: China
Time: 2020 Aug 2 16:52:42 BST


It's clear Spotify has been compromised.   What is worrying me is that after signing out of all devices and changing passwords, the account was again compromised.  This means there is a clear open backdoor with Spotify. 

Why has this not received more media coverage?


Spotify is yet to implement two-factor support despite repeated hacks.


Looking online I can see this has been going on for months.  Spotify, why do you not hire security experts, implement 2FA and stop this?


I will be cancelling and moving back to Deezer.  I suggest everyone else on Premium does the same.
