Mac app crashes around 2 minute mark

Mac app crashes around 2 minute mark







MacBook Pro (Mid 2015)

Operating System

macOS High Sierra 10.13.6


My Question or Issue

I have the same issue as this poster on my Mac (running Spotify except that for me the app crashes around the 1 minute 48 second mark. Strangely it used to crash earlier around the 2 minute 15 second mark. The crash time seems to be down to the second. 


I have clean installed the app a few times, added Spotify in the Security & Privacy > Accessibility list and also tried playing around with disabling Bartender 3, which I have installed, as a few people mentioned issues with menu bar managers, but to no avail.


For Spotify to direct users, especially paying, so-called Premium users, to Apple for this seems unacceptable. I hope that this issue is resolved at the earliest given the significant number of users facing it.


Here is a list of apps/services I have running in the background in case it is easier for the engineers to identify if any of them is causing this behavior.


  • Bartender 3
  • Alfred 3
  • Hazel 4
  • Default Folder X
  • Moom
  • Dropbox
  • Backup and Sync from Google 
  • Google Drive File Stream
  • CrashPlan for Small Business
  • 1Password 6
  • Fantastical 2
  • TextExpander 5
  • NTFS for Mac
  • Monosnap
  • ToothFairy
  • Amphetamine
  • Anti-Social
  • CheatSheet
