Spotify is making some users reset their passwords and the reason is – other websites keep getting hacked. There have been numerous huge data breaches affecting tens of millions of users.
Situation is even worse because of the fact that many people re-use their passwords across many services. So breach of one service where password was re-used compromises other sites and services as login details obtained on one service can be used to gain illicit access to accounts on other services and websites.
Therefore Spotify is forcing users whose details were exposed in some of these previous breaches to change their passwords.
