[Social] Block Followers

I believe there should be a way to block people that are following you on Spotify. When blocked, the user will automatically unfollow you and will not be able to find you, or view your public playlists.

 

Blocking should be possible via both username and email address.

Hey folks.

We're changing this status to good idea.

 

We definitely think this is a strong idea, however it isn't in our current road map.
The teams behind our social features are aware that you're bringing your feedback here and we're working closely with them to bring forward all your comments and concerns.

If there are any updates on blocking Spotify followers we will let you know here first.

Thanks everyone!

ADD THIS FEATURE PLEASE, THIS IS A MAJOR CYBER/SECURITY RISK FOR YOUR CUSTOMERS.

 

YOUR SILENCE WILL ALLOW MUCH HARM TO BE DONE.

 

IT'S 2020...

This is perverted that we can't block this.

How long until we can turn this severe lapse of user privacy into a class-action lawsuit?

No update on this?? How is it possible that this has not been implemented yet? I know for a fact that people with ill intent are using this platform to communicate with underage girls and their parents have no way of blocking these people. This is a safety issue at this point and should be taken more seriously. I love Spotify, but I will never let any of my own children use it for this reason. Do better Spotify.

Three things this service has yet to address. 

1. Blocking Followers

2. Blocking Explicit Pornographic Album art.

3. Two factor authentication Logins
