Why Spotify Logged Me Out Of My Account? [Explained]

Spotify may sign you out if you try using the same account on different devices at the same time. Here are ways to bypass this error and continue enjoying music!

Recently, some Spotify users have encountered difficulties when attempting to log in to their accounts. This has been the cause of a lot of frustration, as Spotify itself has not posted a specific fix to the problem. Here, I’ll be talking about bypassing the issue to log back into your account and once more enjoy the sweet taste of your playlists.

Key Takeaways

  • If Spotify has logged you out of your account, it may be because you are using it on multiple devices, you did not update the Spotify app, or you recently changed the password for your account.
  • Restart the Spotify app, change the password, clear the app’s cache, update the app, etc., to fix the problem.
  • Fortunately, Spotify has various support platforms, like Spotify Cares, The Spotify Community, and Spotify Support, where you can get help.

Why Did Spotify Log You Out Of Your Account?

Spotify doesn’t log you out for no reason, as if the error was common, the app wouldn’t be nearly as popular as it is. There are some specific causes that may prompt a log out response from Spotify, these causes are:

  • The Spotify servers are down.
  • You’re attempting to play music on the same account on different devices at the same time.
  • The password might have been changed.
  • Spotify is unavailable in your country.
  • Not paying your due bills for premium.
  • Some third-party apps may be interfering.

What To Do When You Cannot Log Into Your Spotify Account?

We will discuss all the solutions for the issue in detail so you can understand every step and get done with the process quickly. To log back in, follow these fixes:

  • Check your internet
  • Restart your router.
  • Check Spotify server status.
  • Update Spotify to the latest version
  • Clear app cache
  • Re-login to your Spotify Account
  • Change your password
  • Reinstall the Spotify App
  • Remove third-party apps such as storage cleaners. 

Restart Spotify

It is the most basic fix you can perform for many problems on Spotify and other applications. So, close the app and relaunch it after a few minutes to see if you can log in now. On the other hand, if you are using Spotify on the web, close the Spotify tab and reopen it from the browser.

Do A Power Cycle On Your Internet Device

An unstable internet strength may be why you cannot log in to your Spotify account. Power cycling the router will eliminate bugs and glitches, which may slow down the connection strength. Let’s read the steps to the process.

  1. Go to your router.
  2. Locate the “Power” button. It is usually on the back side of the device.
  3. Press it to shut down the router.
  4. Disconnect the power cord attaching your router to the power socket.
  5. Wait for 1 to 2 minutes.
  6. Reconnect the power cord.
  7. Press the “Power” button on the device to switch it on.
  8. Restore the internet connection on your phone or PC, and try logging in to your Spotify account.

Check Spotify Servers

You will undoubtedly face trouble accessing Spotify when its servers are down. If that’s the case, you can only wait until the servers are live to stream your favorite music on the app.

Inspect the Spotify Servers like so.

  1. Open your browser and type “Spotify Servers.”
  2. Press “Enter” to start the search process.
  3. Now, go to the link that says, “Spotify Down?

  4. If the message says, “User Reports Indicate Possible Problems At Spotify,” there are confirmed server issues.

Also, you can go to the “Spotify Status” Twitter account and see if any recent tweets are addressing the problem. Wait for the issue to be resolved by the team.

Update The App

Look for any new Spotify updates on your phone and install them to ensure the smooth functioning of the app. Let’s dive into the steps to use to update apps on our phones.


  1. Go to “Play Store” from the “Homescreen.”

Clear Spotify Cache

So, how do you clear your Spotify cache? Read the steps below.


  1. From the “Settings” menu, find and select “Apps.

iPhone does not offer a clear cache option to its users. You need to restart your phone to clear all the processes for the Spotify app.

Sign Out On All Other Devices

You would require a laptop or a PC for this method since you need to access Spotify’s web version to sign out of other devices in one click.

Let’s dive into the step-by-step method for this fix.

  1. Open your computer’s default browser.
  2. Type “Spotify Web” in the search bar and hit the “Enter” button.
  3. Go to “Spotify  – Web Player.”

Delete Cleaning Apps On Your Device

Cleaning apps may also affect Spotify’s smooth running on your device. They are designed to save your phone’s battery by terminating the ongoing processes of the installed apps. Try uninstalling the cleaning software on your device and check if you can log into your Spotify account.

Change Spotify Password

You might face problems logging in the first time after a password change, especially if you mistakenly enter the old password after the reset. Hence, resetting your account’s password can send away the issue. Again, this method requires a laptop or PC because you cannot change passwords on Spotify’s mobile or desktop app.

Use the process below to change Spotify’s password.

  1. Open Spotify Web on your computer by searching it on the browser.

Disable Third-Party Apps

Sometimes, the third-party apps connected to your account may hinder Spotify’s proper functioning. Thus, you need to see which apps have full access to Spotify. Disable the permissions and then try to log in to Spotify.

In addition, if you are using Spotify on your web, use the following steps to disable third-party apps.

  1. Open “Spotify Web.”
  2. Select your “Profile Name.” It should be in the top-right corner.

Check The Country’s Availability On Spotify

You can match your country with the official Spotify availability list. If you do not find the concerned country or region in the list, you may not be able to use your Spotify account.

Contact Spotify Support

Lastly, contact Spotify Support if you are still stuck with the problem. Ask them to check if there is an issue with your Spotify account. Moreover, a dedicated Twitter account, Spotify Cares, can help resolve your queries or send you to a specific thread on The Spotify Community that contains the answer to your problem.

Why Am I Logged Out Of Spotify Premium?

Spotify Premium will log you out if you fail to make the month’s payment by the due date. In addition, if someone else has access to your Premium account, they may have canceled the subscription without informing you. However, if you are sure that none of these reasons caused this issue, contact Spotify’s support team to know more.

Final Words

Spotify is a very convenient app for streaming music on the go, but it can sometimes log you out and stop you from logging back in. To fix this, check your internet, update Spotify to the latest version, clear app cache, re-login to your Spotify Account, sign out of other devices, and change your password. If these do not fix the issue, you can also try reinstalling the Spotify App and removing third-party apps such as storage cleaners. In case the issue persists, contact Spotify Support.
