Rumors 03 Dec
While the popular music streaming service Spotify continues to expand into different parts of the world, the app is also consistently updating its terms of service to keep up with new challenges that come forward. In an attempt to curb the use of ad-blockers that harm the content creators and as well as the advertisers, Spotify has announced that it would begin cracking down on accounts that would be found using Ad-blockers.
This is mentioned in the user guidelines section which states, “circumventing or blocking advertisements in the Spotify Service, or creating or distributing tools designed to block advertisements”. So in case any user tries to play around to block the ads and is caught up doing so, would risk their account getting terminated.

The company also rolled out an email to its users sharing information about the newly updated terms and that user who continue to use the service after 1st March would be considered as accepting the new terms. Currently its not use whether Spotify would give a prior warning to users who would be found guilty of using ad-blockers or whether it would take the extreme action right away without any prior notification. The company is yet to comment on that.
