Spotify Web App not working, VPN is connected

Spotify Web App not working, VPN is connected

I was working on my App development, and I needed to use VPN access for some API integration once the VPN was connected, the Spotify Web app started giving me a 403 status code error. 


I might be wrong here, but it is just feedback if this can be resolved. Thanks

Hi there,


We've moved your post to the Help Boards, as it's not an Idea for a new feature.


Currently the Spotify service as a whole doesn't suppose the use of VPN. This is because the Spotify library, certain app features and Premium plan prices vary between countries and regions due to local regulations, and we can't support services that can be used to alter your IP address.


Most likely your VPN is blocking access to some networking port required by the web played to sync data with the servers, so we'd suggest looking into that. Note that we can't guarantee that the web player or desktop app would work as expected when using a VPN.


Hope this info helps.
