Hi. I've been having the very same problem in the last two days. In particular someone from Turkey have been using my account, adding new playlists I have never seen and changing some settings on my account, so now I keep receiving email notifications written in Turkish every time I access mu account or change the password! I have already followed all the steps suggested by the Spotify assistance guide, including making sure that country is correctly set. However I keep receiving emails in Turkish! What else should I do to fix this mess?
Asked to change password and delete cookies but this didn't stop the alerts. Support implied that I have something on my PC and don't seem to get that I reset my passwords (my email has 2FA) and that I've done it on a completely separate PC (work PC).
Two hours after doing that I got a new notification saying someone accessed it from the US.
I've spoken with support again and I was told to change the email address 😞
I was change email address as well. What precisely does that mean? Can you change the email address linked to an account? And also I have never heard of this before (that’s not to say it has not happened) but isn’t this a Spotify software/ security issue? I am not an IT guru and so I accept my question may be a stupid one
If you find this happening, you could have compromised email on dark web and or malicious actor. Change your email passwords associated with spotify. Then once all passwords done. Look into settings there should be an option, Log me out of all Devices. This will sign out all those that were logged in as you.
This issue has affected thousands of users for years now. Spotify refuses to implement 2 factor authentication or fix the source of these leaked user credentials. Change your password to something unique and make sure you weren't that password with any other services.
