Spotify suffers data breach

spotify

spotifySpotify have become the latest victim of data breach, as their own network security team became aware of unauthorised access to their systems. It would seem that only one users account details has been accessed. However to ensure no other users suffer the same fate, all users will be asked to re-enter their credentials the next time they attempt to use the Spotify client.

Spotify users who use the iOS, Windows Phone and desktop apps to enjoy the Spotify service will be prompted to re-enter their credentials. Android users will be prompted to perform an app upgrade, and although the upgrade isn’t forced, it’s highly recommended you download and install before use.

It’s worth mentioning, installing applications on your Android device from sources over than Google Play or the Amazon Appstore is a bad idea. Which one small exception, in this case, you can also download the latest Android app from https://m.spotify.com

Once Android users have finished downloading an installing the latest update, they will then have to download any offline playlists once again.
