Unwanted Web Player

Hello, I've never had a problem with Spotify until I got premium (I listen on my iPhone). I purchased Premium to listen in college, and then while i was listening to music, it started to randmomly cut out, and start playing random music, when I unlock my phone it says I am listening on Spotify Web Player and gives me the option to continue or listen on this iphone (both choices do the same thing-- essentially nothing), everytime it does this it also follows a bunch of random bot generated playlists of unwanted music. At first I thought this was because of crappy connection on the Quad, but even at home with a stable wifi connection it still happens. And I mean it happens about 3-5 times every hour without fail, and it is infuriating. This has been happening for 2 months now and I dont know why I've waited this long to find help but at this point I'm ready to switch to Apple Music because I simply cannot find a solution and I am not going to pay to have a worse experience than when it was free. I've attempted to log out, reinstall the app, and I've searched all over the application for any way to disable this but I simply can't find anything. Any knowledge or solutions on the subject would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Thanks for the input, I got in touch with a spotify customer service agent and we resolved the issue, both my account and password have been reset so my account should be secure now.
