Yeah ,it happens coz spotifi doesn t have an autentificatio bypass.And that s why spotifi sucks so much dix coz of that.Even if u have premium u are still gonna get hacked. Too bad I didn tinvest nothing in this piece**bleep** platform but also it sad coz I got al my favorite songs and playlist there.
I had the same issue. about two days ago after I turned on my desktop which automatically logs into Spotify, I started playing a playlist and my tracks kept skipping to songs I would never listen to (rap music I had never heard of before). I would hit a new playlist to see if it would stop and it wouldn't. This kept happening for about an hour until I just gave up and decided it was better to not listen at all. I minimized Spotify with nothing playing. Accounted it to being glitch what happens sometimes. When I came back to computer today to listen I had worse issues with skipping and devices to listen from, mainly my Sonos speakers. I was not able to keep on speaker on for more than a minute. Then out of the blue I was logged out of my account. Tried to log back in and my password was not working. After two attempts I got a redirect to retrieve email to log back in and change my password. When I went to my email I noticed an email Spotify had been sent to change my password(it was a legit email) that had been sent about the same time I spotted my first issue the day before. Then after searching my emails I noticed 7 more emails from Spotify notifying me of logins from all over the world. After I was able to change my password and get logged back in to my Spotify account I noticed that about a dozen new playlist of rap music had been added to my account. THIS IS NOT COOL AT ALL! My account was hacked as was everyone else posting in this thread. What the **bleep** Spotify?!!! To top it off not admittance from leadership at Spotify that this has occurred? I am attaching the playlist that were added to my account while it was hacked.
Every time I try to click on the links in the solution post, I keep getting the error "upstream request timeout".
I cannot tell if the email saying someone from Germany (I'm in USA) logged in to my account is spam or real. I logged in, signed out of everywhere. My wife signed in and did the same. We have a family account and both our accounts are linked to our facebook accounts, so we don't have a password to change. What do we do? How do I know if the email is real?
Keep in mind that Spotify accounts created via Facebook take on the email registered with Facebook, meaning you can still reset your password. We also recommend changing the passwords of your Facebook and email accounts as well.
If you keep getting timeout errors we suggest trying an incognito browser. Sometimes the cache and cookies stored in your browser can cause such issues and this is an easy way to avoid them. You can also try with another device, if that's an option.
As for the emails, you can get in touch with our customer support team here. They'll be happy to take a look at them and determine whether they are from us.
Hope this helps. Keep us posted how you get on.
Have a great day.

If u think it a waste of time and money ...well u are right coz even with premium u still gonna get hacked.In my opinion until they don t put a 2nd autentification metod there is no point in investing money in it.Yeah u have unlimited skips and u can listen in offline mode but that doesn t mean nithing if u get your account hacked.So a piece of advice , do not buy premium if your financial status is low and definetly do not sign in with a email that shows your name also even with facebook.
