Have you ever noticed unknown devices accessing your Spotify account? Or you’re simply looking to declutter and manage which devices hold access to your favorite tunes. Whatever the case may be, this guide is here to help you regain control.
This guide offers valuable information and step-by-step instructions, catering to both Spotify-free users and premium subscribers, to ensure that only trusted and desired devices are linked to your account.
To ensure control and remove unwanted devices using your Spotify account, follow the instructions below.
Log out on the device
By logging out, you will instantly disconnect all devices associated with your Spotify account. This helps you maintain control over your account and ensures that only the devices you want to use are connected.
Implementing this quick and straightforward process will help you easily remove any unauthorized devices from your Spotify account.
Use Spotify’s Remove Access feature
Another scenario is when you need to prevent particular apps from accessing your Spotify account. For instance, if you connected your Spotify to someone’s Discord account and now wish to remove it, you can do so by navigating to your Spotify account page. From there, go to the Privacy settings and choose the option to Manage Apps.
In the Manage Apps section, you will find a list of all the apps that have access to your Spotify account. Simply click on the “Remove Access” button next to the app you no longer need.

Remove the connected device from Spotify
As previously stated, you have the ability to remove access to unwanted devices remotely. To do this on a desktop, open the Spotify client and click on the icon in the bottom-right corner that says “Connect to a device.”
To view the list of devices connected to your Spotify account, click on the three-dot icon next to the device and select the option to forget it.
Sign out everywhere
If you have been using Spotify for an extended period, it may be more convenient to sign out from all devices instead of removing each unwanted device individually.
To sign out of Spotify, follow these steps: First, go to the Spotify website and log in to your account. Next, click on your profile and select Account. Then, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and click on the option that says Sign out everywhere.
After logging out of your Spotify account on all devices, you will need to use your credentials to sign back in. It is also recommended to change your Spotify password as a precaution against unauthorized access.
It can be a source of frustration when someone else has access to your Spotify account, as it can disrupt your music listening experience and playlist organization. There will also be times that you will get music recommendations that don’t suit your taste.
If you typically share your account with family members, it may be beneficial to consider upgrading to Spotify Premium Family instead. This way, all your music is organized and doesn’t mix up with other users, so you get a better overall listening experience.
