The device connect feature could be compermizing your machine

About 2 days ago I was forced to reset my Spotify password. My login just quite working. After doing this my music would stop playing from time to time. It was then that I noticed a devie on my device list which was not mine (iPad De Roman). The player would switch to playing from that device instead of my computer. 

 

This is where the posible hack comes in. My machine is somehow connectioned via Spotify software to a another machine even after I changed my account password. This connection is using my WiFi to access HTTP trafic. 

 

This is all I know at this point. But I think it would be better if Spotify would allow you to disable this feature for the more secuirty minded people out there. Forcing you to accept a connection feature like this is just bad.

 

My reward for reporting this has been to loose my account until support can figure it out. I wonder if they will keep billing me. Silly question of curse they will!
