[Security] 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.

This idea is from 3 years ago and 2-factor is a security standard nowadays. "Not now"? Seriously? The lack of these security meassures plus some missing functionality media players have had for decades already like global hotkeys that kept labeled "not now" makes me wonder, what ARE you guys working on NOW?

This should be implemented as soon as possible imho. Yesterday my account was hacked and I had taken all the precautions mentioned in the article about protecting your account. Still happened. Spotify really needs to step up its game!

It seems that a lot of users, Premium accounts are stolen because of free Google Home. Please add this function ASAP, Spotify!
