I have seen numerous threads about this issue I am having, but I haven't found a solution that works for me.
I'm a spotify premium member and periodically I encounter the message "Spotify has been paused because your account has been used somewhere else." If I re-start the song in the desktop app on my computer, it will play for a bit (10 seconds to a minute) before it pauses again with the same message. The timing of the pauses seems suspiciously like there is "somebody" somewhere else using my account, as I can play this back and forth game of re-start / pause endlessly. The popular suggested solution on the discussion boards is to change your password, "log out everywhere," and log back in with your new password. This works, BUT, only for a week or two and then the exact problem re-occurs.
I have chnaged my password three times now in the past month and continue to encountered this problem on both my home and work pc. I'm beginning to question the security of my premium account information with Spotify? Is it possible that Spotify is leaking, or has had it user account information hacked? Has anyone else encountered this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
All of these devices do support Spotify Connect. The Web Player doesn't support Spotify Connect so it is worth checking if you aren't accidently using the Web Player in a hidden tab.
I was having this problem, and it was indeed Sonos. I had logged in to a Sonos system at a family member's house 3 hours away, so the solution to log off on Sonos while on that wifi was not an option.
After some digging, I was able to revoke access to Sonos by logging into Spotify > Account > Apps and click "Revoke Access" next to Sonos. Problem solved!
