You guys have GOT to be kicking me.. you have to provide your costumers with SAFETY. i dont care if spotify is a social networking site or not.. if your online and have people you dont want following you, you ABSOLUTELY should have a right to block that person. For me, I have a creepy 15 year old girl following me who listens to freakin jonas brothers and she snoops through my music and listens to it.. it really borthers me. I have to agree with everyone else on here, if you guys dont fix this soon, you will have a REALLY big problem on your hands. no one wants to use a 'app' that they dont feel safe on. sorry.. if you dont fix it.. you'll lose me as a customer too.
Someone please help me out! I have had a stalker for about a year, and it is getting potentially dangerous as he has started making threats. The only thing that I cannot remove him from is Spotify. I use this app to share music with my friends. He is clearly not a friend. Because I cannot block him, he is abusing the app by sending messages. I also feel that since my music activity shows up in his newsfeed as he is a "follower," it is feeding his obsessive behavior.
I do not want to have to use this app in private mode at all times because of this crazy person. As I stated, I use this app frequently to keep up with friends.
PLEASE make it possible to block dangerous people!
I'm tired of waiting for this basic feature so I cancelled my Spotify subscription. I advice everyone in this forum to do the same. Once you cancel, they ask you why. I've clearly explained them why (see text below). If we all cancel and explain them why we cancel, they will have to change this privacy setting! It's our right!!
Why are you unsubscribing?
The ability to block and/or remove Followers! It's all about privacy which should be standard. Many online forums are asking/begging for this feature. We're tired of waiting. So I cancel my subscription until till this feature is implemented. I know many will follow me as it's not up to Spotify to take decisions about our privacy. The longer it takes to get this feature active, the more will change to a different music app!
WHY is this even still an issue, Spotify? This goes beyond a feature set- this is more of a basic safety and privacy concern here. From the looks of this board, many others (myself included) would like to have the ability to remove anyone we deem fit to remove from our followers lists. This is unacceptable and very, very worrisome that this feature hasn't yet been implemented.
Help me keep the crazy out of my life I've worked so hard to remove, and allow me to block unwanted followers. I absolutely detest that this person has knowledge and visbility into what I'm doing, especially when it's something as personal as my music, and that there's literally nothing I can do.
This is so basic. Every single other social platform has this function implemented at MVP, so what's your excuse? Consider this yet another request for feature from a subscriber- this issue will drive me and many others out of your app.
I agree... It shouldn't be a huge coding issue to delete/block someone who is following you... It appears that Spotify encourages & accepts people to spy/stalk on you. I like to listen to the bands & create playlists prior to going to a show/concert. With that in mind, it gives an unwelcome follower the opportunity to know when and where you will be... That's disturbing!
