Error Code 30 - Spotify not working on Mac

Error Code 30 - Spotify not working on Mac







Macbook Pro early 2016

Operating System

Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6


I am unable to log into Spotify or use it on my desktop due to Error Code 30. This is what it says when I try to log in.

When I try to play the web player, this is what I get:

First I noticed the friend feed wasn't updating, and then I wasn't able to play any songs. However, I am still able to use it from my phone.


Here are all of the troubleshooting steps I've already tried:

Completed a clean uninstall and reinstall of the app

Restarted computer

Updated computer

Updated Spotify

Checked text in host files, following other posts' directions

Checked firewall settings on Mac (it's not on)


I feel stuck and would really appreciate some help. Thank you!
