Spotify connected to an unknown device

Spotify connected to an unknown device

Hi, a few days ago my Spotify account began connecting to someone else's phone. For about 20 minutes we were essentially in a tug of war over the account. Now I have about 30 new songs added to my collection. Problem though is that the phone it connected to was not a device I've seen before or since and is nothing I've authorized before on my device (at the time, my laptop). It's most likely a colleague of mine, so I don't suspect anything malicious. They were probably also confused as to what was going on. So, other than deleting the songs and changing passwords, is there anything I should do?

Hey there @tcford007!


You'd want to go to your account page by going to and then clicking the "Sign Out Everywhere" button to ensure a clean start, but you could also click the "offline devices" button on the left of the page to remove that device if any music has been downloaded.
