Can't log in: "A Firewall may be blocking Spotify"

Casual Listener

I can't seem to log in to Spotify Desktop app anymore, I keep getting the message "A firewall may be blocking Spotify". What I've tried to solve it:

 

1. Reinstall Spotify

2. Check firewall settings 

3. Restart PC

4. Checked country settings

5. Disabled VPN completely

 

However, nothing has resolved the problem. Are there any other options to resolve this?
