Security idea. (If you get hacked)

Hello.

My account was recently hacked (i think, password was changed and also my e-mail) and it anoyed the hell out of me, however I have a simple idea that will help people get their accounts back/notice if they got hacked.

 

The thing is, when your account get hacked the hacker changes the e-mail to one of his own, so if you try to reset your password he recieves the e-mail, not you.

 

An easy way to avoid this is when the hacker/or if you want to change your e-mail account, spotify sends out a confirmation mail to the original e-mail where you have to accept or decline that the new e-mail gets connected with your spotify account.

This way you can always get your account back by resetting your password and change it without needing to wait for spotify support etc.
