Spotify takes flak for location-tracking family-plan move
Posted on: 13 septembre 2019, by : Stuart Dredge

Spotify knows where you live… but it would like to check that you’re still living there, every so often, if that’s okay? This is part of the new terms and conditions for the company’s much-discussed Premium Family plan.
An August update to the t’s and c’s included this clause: “We may from time to time ask for re-verification of your home address in order to confirm that you are still meeting the eligibility criteria.” 
CNET spotted the clause, and found a privacy expert to criticise it. “The changes to the policy allow Spotify to arbitrarily use the location of an individual to ascertain if they continue to reside at the same address when using a family account, and it’s unclear how often Spotify will query users’ devices for this information,” said Christopher Weatherhead of Privacy International, suggesting that this has “worrying privacy implications”.
