People who access Spotify using hacked apps that remove some of the restrictions placed on free accounts are receiving warning emails from the company. Noting that "abnormal activity" has been observed from the user's software, Spotify warns that future breaches could result in suspension or even termination of a user's account.

How many people use these hacked versions of Spotify isn’t clear and up to now, it’s been somewhat of a mystery as to why Spotify itself hasn’t done something about them. During the past few days, however, there have been signs that a crackdown could be on the way.

The writing is on the wall it seems for this particular method of obtaining aural enjoyment.

I've found using the web player with uBlock installed works just as well as the subscription plan.  You can even hide the tab and use the desktop client to control the playback too.

I'm guilty of doing this :P
