How to fix the Spotify issue?
Here are six fixes you can try out if Spotify logged you out.
Log out of everywhere
A somewhat familiar fix that has worked for many people is simply going over to the Spotify website and logging out of all devices. After that, you can log back in and start playing without interruptions.
Step 1: Head over to the Account Review page on Spotify and log into your account.
Step 2: Scroll down and click on Log out option.
Now log in again to your Spotify app, and the ‘Spotify logged me out’ error should be fixed.
Reset your password
Another relatively common fix for the problem and one that Spotify recommends is that you reset your password. Being logged out automatically can hint that your account has been compromised, so change your password to ensure that isn’t the case.
Whether you’re on Windows, macOS, Android or iPhone, if Spotify is experiencing some issues, a fix is already in the works and will be pushed soon. Check if you have any updates available for the app and if you do, install them right away.

Clear the cache
Clearing the Spotify app’s cache can also help freshen things up and potentially fix the issue.
- Open your phone’s settings and head over to Apps.
- Tap Show all apps.
- Find Spotify in the list. Tap it to proceed.
- Tap Storage and cache.
- Tap the Clear storage and Clear cache buttons.
Now reopen the Spotify app and try logging in again.
Remove any cleanup apps
Aggressive third-party cleanup apps can often force close apps in the background, which can, in turn, cause them to behave weirdly, including but not limited to logging you out automatically.
In such cases, remove any cleanup apps that you might have on your phone and check to see if you’re still getting logged out automatically.
