Especially if you have Premium Spotify, you might be scared to lose all your downloaded music or playlists. But not to worry, there are a bunch of solutions you can try and get it fixed.

Methods To Fix Spotify Automatic Logout

Method # 1: Sign Out Of All Devices

There is a possibility your Spotify account is being used on multiple devices and therefore, you have been logged out! While there are different payment plans that allow a number of people to use the same account, it might not be the plan you are using.

When there are more people logged into one account than the plan purchased, it might lead to one of them being logged out, and it might be you. In order to fix this issue, you will need to log out of all the devices your Spotify might be logged into.

  • Go to Spotify’s official website and log in using your username and password.

  • On the Account Overview page, scroll down to the bottom and find the option to “SIGN OUT EVERYWHERE”.

  • Once you have clicked on the button, you will be able to log out of any computers or phones that your Spotify may be logged in on.
  • Now you can log in to your own device and change your password if needed.

Method #2: Change Your Password

If logging out of all devices still doesn’t work and you keep getting logged out, it is possible someone else might have hacked your Spotify account. The easiest way to solve this is by simply changing your account’s password. If your Spotify account is linked with your Facebook account, you simply need to change your Facebook ID’s password. If, however, you have a Spotify account- you would need to follow the following steps:

  • On your browser, open the Spotify website and navigate the password reset page.

  • Once you open it, you should be able to change your password by entering your old one and setting up a new one.
  • Click on Set Up New Password button. You should have no issues now.

Method #3: Reinstall Spotify

While uninstalling and reinstalling might seem like an old trick, it works a lot of the time! And who knows, if you keep getting logged out of Spotify, it might be because you are using an older version of the app. The quickest way to fix this is by uninstalling the app and reinstalling it so you have the latest version installed.

  • On your PC/Mac, simply uninstall Spotify first. To reinstall, go to Spotify’s website and click on the Download button. This should install Spotify’s latest version.
  • If you are on your iPhone or Android, simply uninstall Spotify’s app. Go to your App Store or Playstore to install Spotify once again.

Method #4: Remove Third Party App Access

It might be possible that your Spotify is linked with third party apps which might be causing an error to occur. Linking to third party apps can make your app bug out if there are some issues in other apps that have access to it. To revoke this access, you will need to go to Spotify’s page.

  • Login and click on your profile’s icon on the top right of the page.

  • Click on the ‘Account’ button.

  • Once you are on the next page, you should find the ‘Apps’ option. After clicking on it, you will be shown a list of apps that are connected with your Spotify account.

  • Click on the “Remove Access” button and you are done. This should remove all third party app access from your Spotify account.

Method #5: Remove Mobile Cleaning Apps

Device cleaning apps clean your device of background app processes and app cache that might be saved into your device. However, one of the worst things you can do is download device cleaning apps. They not only take up unnecessary space but also disrupt a lot of your device’s processes. One of these apps might be the reason why you are being logged out of your Spotify account over and over again.

You can go into your device cleaning app’s settings and turn it off. Or you can simply go into your device’s settings and uninstall it like any other app. This might help your apps from displaying error messages.

Method #6: Clearing Cache

While you might not have any mobile cleaning apps, you can manually clean your applications’ cache easily. Spotify like all apps saves temporary files to make your app work quicker and save bandwidth. However, over time these files and accumulate and create some issues in your applications.

You can simply clear cache by going to your app’s settings and clicking on ‘Clear Cache’. This is quick and easy and might just solve your problem.

 Method #7: Customer Support

Your last option might be to contact Customer Support on Spotify’s website. By explaining your issue they might be able to provide a solution that caters to you and actually fixes your problem. There is a ‘Message Us’ option on Spotify’s website, through which you can contact a member from their Customer Support team and they will guide you especially in order to fix your problem.

You can also in the true new Gen Z fashion tweet at them @SpotifyCares and get a response from them as soon as they see it! This might even help you get a response from other people who might know the solution anyways.

So How Do You Reach Out To Community Help Page?

If you are looking for more solutions from people who might be in similar situations, you would benefit from Spotify’s community help page. This is a great place to ask for help as people work together to provide a solution that just might work for you.

You can even ask for help from professionals that are labeled as Stars and they are the most knowledgeable according to Spotify. You can even tweet at them by tagging @SpotifyStars and this might just be exactly what you need.


It might seem frustrating to have your Spotify account logged out over and over again but one of these solutions is bound to work for you and you will be back to listening music in no time! Until then you can use other streaming services for your music needs. While Spotify is one of the best- it is possible the application has a bug that needs to be fixed. Hopefully, it will not be too long before you are back to regular listening.
