Possible account hack

Hello. Playlists and songs keep appearing in my Spotify premium account that I haven't selected and wouldn't normally listen to. For instance, I was listening to Clutch on my phone, paused the album, then when I came back to my phone it'd switched to a playlist and song I didn't recognise. (A playlist by DJ Hamida in this case).

 

This isn't the first instance of this happening, even though I still have full access to my account. There are at least 3 playlists right now in my playlist section that I don't recognise.

 

Has my account been hacked??

Hey @Jon79! Welcome to the Spotify Community!

It sounds like someone is using your account. Could you change your passwords and sign out everywhere here? Let me know if it happens after that.

Take care! :)

Thanks much for this post. I do not have premium but I've been experiencing my spotify showing me devices IE listening on Xbox One (I do not own one at all ) ... and my playlist changes. (No one has my info and this has been a recent problem). 

Thank you again to the original poster and for the forum reply. Cheers

Have an awesome day!
