This isn't a resolution for me. I've deleted my saved Spotify password dozens of times already, uninstalled and reinstalled the program, changed my password on the web to match the one for Google, and changed it independently.
I just tried downloading again and the same thing is still happening. I can enter my password to log in, but it immediately blinks off and never opens. Screenshot of the empty spotify and the latest version I downloaded are attached.
I'm currently using a workaround by downloading playlists to my very old ipod and listening to that on the long commute home. But this is making me feel like I should start paying for Pandora 😞
Check your registered email's inbox, Spotify might have sent a mail telling you that they have reset your password due to suspicious activity. Reset it, go offline and log out of your account in the app > go back online and log in.
I get a Blue Ribbing across the screen which says GoogleSmartLock and my business email, which I don't use with Spotify. Locks the log-on process. Tried everything, Disable smart lock, New download, U name it. But nothing wotks. Much annoying 😞 Brand new S9.
After maybe two and a half months and several phone updates later, I again tried downloading and it finally worked. I still don't know what the problem was but it must have been an incompatibility with my phone software and spotify version.
This worked for me! I don't have a subscription, so I didn't have to unsubscribe. My Smart Lock was causing my app not to log in. So, after removing my password from my saved Smart Lock passwords (you have to do that through your Google acct), I turned on Airplane mode, logged into the Spotify app, then logged into Spotify on my PC and changed my password, then turned Airplane mode off on my phone. It kicked my out of the app, I closed it (just for safe measure), reopened it and put in the new password. Ta-da!! It worked! It didn't ask me to save it to Smart Lock, but I won't have it do that again.. Thanks Lena1212!
My premium Spotify account just suddenly stopped working today WHILE I WAS LISTENING TO MUSIC on a Samsung S10+. The widget on the home screen disappeared first and couldn't get added back in. After I closed the app and reopened it, it wouldn't sign in and the Google Smart Lock Ribbon started flashing and sometimes crashed the app.
