My Question or Issue

My main concern is my music keeps skipping to a new song infinitely and instantly, so I can't even play a playlist without it constantly skipping to a new song, only for the process to repeat indefinitely. Also, when I try to play a song from my Liked Songs it comes up with a message at the top of my application saying, "Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it."

My first assumption was my account was hijacked, so I had gone into my

%appdata% > Roaming > Spotify > Users > "my username"

and deleted local-files.bnk. Tried restarting Spotify, and my music still keeps skipping songs instantly and infinitely. I know there is no person who could be manually skipping my songs unless they had access to my account EVEN AFTER I reset my password and logged out of all accounts. One thing I forgot to mention was I also removed all third party connections to my Spotify Google account as well as my Spotify account itself, excluding Google of course. 


Asking for some assistance on this one. Thanks.

Hello @SwishLife

Thank you for reaching out here in the Community!

Just to make sure nobody has access to your account, check out this Support article. Some additional steps on how to protect your account can be found here


I'd also recommend performing clean reinstall of your Spotify app. It's different than regular reinstallation.
Just find your device in this article and follow the steps provided there. 

It should help with the songs skipping issue. 

I hope it helps!
