Hi there,


Welcome to the Spotify Community! Let's try and solve this together so you can get back to enjoying your favorite tunes!


A screenshot of the exact error message you're seeing would be greatly appreciated - just make sure any sensitive info (like your email address) is covered up and not visible. Also, could you check if you get the same error in Safe mode with Networking?


It's worth changing the Proxy type during the login screen to see if does the trick:

  1. Launch Spotify and click on Settings at the bottom of the login screen.
  2. Set the Proxy type to No proxy, then restart the app.

If the issue persists, check your firewall's settings and make sure Spotify's access to your network isn't restricted. Something else you can try out is editing your hosts file and removing any entries with Spotify in the address. You'll find a detailed guide on how to do that here.


Hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.
