[All Platforms][Other] 2-Factor Authentication

Spotify should, as a matter of good practice and safety, implement 2-step authentication.

 

Previously, Spotify enabled the option to log out other sessions other than the current session.

 

This would prevent hackers from stealing accounts, which would additionaly lead to less account hacks and less work for Spotify employees to assist in these cases.

Hi everyone, thanks for bringing us your feedback in the Spotify Idea Exchange. We’re ready to mark this idea as ‘Under Consideration’. 

 

We are currently investigating various solutions for account security for our users, e.g. 2-factor authentication. Any news regarding user-facing security updates will be posted to this thread as a status change.

The spotify teams seriously needs to work on getting a 2FA or some type of extra security authentication. Its too easy for hackers to get into peoples accounts and take advantage. This has been going on too long and its time Spotify created a solution. If not I will have to swtich platforms and I really wouldn't like to sift through and transfer thousands of songs

I feel I should note that the lack of 2FA is why I stopped using Spotify in favor of Youtube Music, and I encourage you all to do the same, as Spotify clearly does not care about account security.

In the last 3 months I have been asked to reset my password at least 7 times.  This is very frustrating.  I have always kept my Spotify password separate from any other passwords.  I inquired with support and they confirmed that there had been no suspicious activity on any of my devices, but could not provide an explanation for the repeated password reset notifications.

 

I then suggested what about secondary authentification software and whether Spotify had any plans to add this feature to the app.  Many companies that require passwords for signins are moving to this feature to avoid password issues.

 

I think it is a great idea.  Sure it takes a bit longer to sign in, but it certainly would cut down on the need to reset and then remember the lastest password.

 

Thoughts anyone?

it's been a while since I did an update but I thought I'd share what the last year has been like in my inbox. note that some of these have multiples (up to 5) in a day, so these are pretty much constant, and none of them are from me.

this has to stop.
