[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.


If you'd like further information about protecting your account please visit our Support Site here.


Hmm they want to have free account ? isn't it easier to register new one ? 😄 Interesting


my email is very likely not the primary reason my account is subject to so many attempts to "hack" it. most likely it's because, since I opened my account so early in spotify's existence, my username is short and is also an actual name. so "nell" is apparently an account name people really want.


In fact there was an older request for 2FA, posted on 2013-06-20.


So we're past the 9th anniversary of this mess. 

Also, no offence meant but @MalikP_EU your contributions to this thread add a lot of unnecessary noise. 


This feature have been suggested since 2015, and with the state of software security and people accounts getting leaked/hacked, this should be on the very top of the priority list. I know Spotify isn't like the place of most private stuff, but every service that respects its users and their account safety, should have this feature.

You can literally put your address in Spotify, and your credit card info
that hackers can potentially see, soooo...

Upvoted. The login system is abysmal and way out of date. The Facebook method doesn't work for me and I never feel secure when logging in normally. Spotify desperately needs 2FA because it's supremely easy for anyone to get in.


I cannot believe this still has not been implemented. Just shows how customers' privacy is not a priority for Spotify.


This has been around since 2015. It is now common practice and after losing my account this week, it should be a top priority to protect user accounts in the current environment. When is Spotify going to take protecting their user's information seriously!


Here to put some noise to get 2FA implemented onto Spotify. I hate having to change my password every other month just because someone managed to log on to it from somewhere in the world. 

For context, my password 3 months ago was some thing like #$/fee/][0(((11+A~.



Not everyone uses Facebook, please add 2fa so we can use Authy / google authenticator or simular compatible
