Spotify and VPN
When I attempt to connect to my Spotify account after establishing a VPN connection, it complains that my IP address doesn’t match my country of origin listed on my Spotify account. This is incredibly irritating. I shouldn’t have to choose between covering my ass and listening to music. The solution is easy, though. Still slightly irritating, but completely functional.
- Ensure VPN is off and you’re connecting from your home IP.
- Sign in to Spotify.
- Establish your VPN connection.
Pretty simple. When I took those steps it didn’t even interrupt playback, but I started getting Swedish advertisements. Handy trick. As far as I can tell, the established connection retains all original functionality.
