This is somewhat solved, I justed wanted to put this here... I guess. But two days ago my Spotify account got hacked. Reason why I think this is because I was trying to listen to my music (at that time) but it kept playing to a different device, the device name was "P9000"... if I remember correctly. I continued pressing my device but it kept going to P9000 (assuming that the person behind that device was also pressing to play through theirs- kinda like a tug of war thing...). So I took action by logging in and "sign out everywhere", I then had a look on my account and all my friends and artists that I follow weren't there, and all my playlists were deleted (assuming they removed them). The person also had the audacity to make their own playlist and follow a bunch of other playlists and artists (modern rappers). To be honest, I completely forgot to take some screenshots HAHAHAHA. I got my playlists back because of the "recover playlists" tab online. But yeah, everything is fine right now, kinda just wanted to leave this here.

Thank you!
