How to troubleshoot if Spotify logs you out?

1. Is Spotify Down?

Spotify is a giant in the world of music streaming, but that doesn't mean it's immune to system errors. Because of the variety of services it offers, there's plenty of room for errors and technical problems. And when that happens, Spotify becomes inaccessible to users until they fix all the problems. So, when your Spotify doesn't work, you might want to check if their system is down.

To check if Spotify is down, you can take a look at their official Twitter account dedicated to updating the status of their service. You can also visit Services Down, a site that collates crash reports from known service providers to report which sites aren't working.

2. Check your internet connection

Make sure your device is connected to a strong Wi-Fi connection. By default, Spotify prevents you from downloading songs over cellular data networks, so if you have an cellular connection instead of a Wi-Fi connection, the songs will wait until the next time you are connected to Wi-Fi to download.
If you want to enable cellular downloading, tap the Settings gear in the mobile app, tap "Music Quality," and switch on "Download Using Cellular."

3. Check Spotify premium status

Log onto your email and see if Spotify has recently contacted you. The person responsible for your payments may have cancelled your premium. If you do not have premium, go onto the computer on spotify web player and see if you can log onto your account on a different device. 

4. Free Up Your Device Storage

Spotify uses a lot of memory to store all the podcasts and songs you've recently listened to in a cache. By doing so, the app can access this information quickly so that you don't have a delay in loading them the next time. Downloading songs for offline access also expands the storage space occupied by Spotify. While these features definitely bring more convenience to users, their drawback is that they depend on having enough storage space. As a result, running out of device memory can lead to problems, such as Spotify logging you out. Fortunately, there is a simple solution to these problems. Freeing up your device storage allows Spotify to have more space to load properly. The easiest way to do this is to clear Spotify's cache. To do this, simply follow these steps.

  1. Launch Spotify, then click on the Settings icon at the upper right-hand side.
  2. Scroll down to the Storage section. 
  3. Select Clear cache, then confirm by pressing OK if prompted.
