[All Platforms] Security notification when someone else logs in

Status: Implemented

I had the idea, seeing as a lot of people have issues with strangers taking over their account, that whenever a new device signs into someones spotify via app or website, that the owner should be notified and given a choice if the person signing in can proceed or not. I love how spotify makes all devices sign out when the password is reset, helping immensly when a stranger signs in, but I feel like this could further help ensure great security on spotify accounts.

Hey @Leahfirefly,

 

We're happy to report that this has now been implemented!

 

You should now receive an email notification when we detect a new log-in, whether it's a new device or a new location.

 

Take care!
