My Question or Issue

Hello!

I just recently saw this happen, and it started yesterday. For some reason, spotify is adding unknown playlists to my library. I have never heard of the playlists and after looking through the songs I wouldn't listen to them either.

 

The way it happens is that I will go to boot up spotify from the taskbar, and after a few seconds of waiting a new playlist will happen to be followed. I have not been able to recreate it actively yet (I have tried to induce this problem to provide further info) but it seems to only work once a day.

 

The playlist name that happened to be followed today is called "Road Trip Songs to Sing" by Emma Jackson. This profile also created the playlist from yesterday (when I first encountered this) which was "Ultimate Driving Songs". I have also included a screenshot of the said playlist and profile in question (for personal reasons my profile, profile of friends and other info that I don't want shared has been covered).

 

I can see this problem becoming annoying quickly if I don't find a fix for it so any help is appreciated.

Thanks for the quick response!

 

I will see if this helps, and I will probably update tomorrow or as soon as I see the problem reoccuring. Should I close the question in the meantime and open a new one if it happens again or just leave this thread open?

It's always best to stay in the same thread. 🙂
