On the blogs post Oskar Stal, Spotify's CTO, said it has identified "unauthorized access to our systems and internal company data." According to Spotify, the breach affected just one user. "This did not include any password, financial or payment information. We have contacted this one individual," Stål wrote. "Based on our findings, we are not aware of any increased risk to users as a result of this incident."
Spotify have mentioned that in coming days, Spotify Android app will prompt users to re-enter their username and password to log back in. Users running outdated versions of the app will be guided through the update process to ensure they’re running the latest version.
