[Security] Show recent Account Activity (IP, Time, etc.)

Spotify has now a great feature of showing all the devices that have offline lists.

Next step is to keep track and show the account owner the recent account activity. This would be a list all the last sessions, devices and IP addresses that have been using my Shopify account. Activity tracking is a normal security feature that other streaming services use. For example, Netflix has this feature and I find it great for my account security. I can see all the timestamps, devices, IP addresses and countries my account has been used in. No need to guess if there is someone else using your account somewhere.

 

Here is an example how Netflix shows this information:

I tried to see is someone else suggested this earlier, but I was not able to find anything and I'm quite surprised that Spotify doesn't have this feature yet. I'm certain that Spotify already has all this information, so it is more about just showing it to the account owner.

 

Information that recent account activity should have:

-Timestamp when the account was used

-IP address of the device using the account

-Country where the device was when using the account (based on the IP address I assume)

-Type of device that used the account (iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Desktop, Smart TV, Web Player, etc)

Great Idea. I could do with this right now as someone else is accessed my account and upgraded my subscription to family.

Thank you Marco! Your changes definitely made sense :)

 

Sorry to hear about that matt63 :(

I had the same situation half a year ago. Someone was using my Spotify and there was no way to tell who he/she was.
