[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.

Hey guys, this is basic security that should be added

It’s Under Consideration yet… as HiFi🤣🤣🤣

Only if it's entirely optional. If I'm forced to use it to log in I'm gonna stop using Spotify.

Of course, this is always and should be always optional.

Six years later, and evidently an industry standard security is too difficult to implement, all the while unimportant changes like changing icons from hearts to pluses and moving the queue from its own view to a cramped side panel are prioritized. This is disappointing.

It's actually 11 years at this point, because there was an older issue from 2013 that was closed in favour of this one.

 

11 YEARS!?!

log in to spotify desktop or apple tv or android tv apps with a QR code capture in ios/android mobile phone using a logged in spotify mobile app.

 

logging in an unknown new device may trigger an auto password reset and logging out of all devices. using a known device to authenticate a new log in would be useful. when using apple tv 4k spotify app, one is prompted to log in in a browser in the "spotify.com/pair" page. if the user could scan a QR code that would link to the spotify app in the mobile phone, if the user is already logged in the mobile phone, then the user could easily authenticate the pairing (logging in) from the phone. this would ensure quick and easy and smooth user experience of logging in to apple tv and similar products.

Hello, I want to reiterate the idea that the platform provides two-step security verification for greater security of our accounts, since without this option we are more vulnerable to attacks and our accounts are hacked, it is active for artists but it should also be. . active for us users because many of us pay for it and in the blink of an eye our information can be stolen, I hope you take this idea into account

You're one of the biggest music providers in the world, yet can't provide the most basic functionality.
