But millions of users have been bypassing the monthly fee of $9.99 to enjoy Spotify Premium service effortlessly by using old-fashioned ad-blocking applications.
As Reuters reports, roughly two million of Spotify's users have been utilising various means in order to access ad-free versions of the service without paying. They use unauthorized apps that make it possible to "disallow" the limits of the free service. In 2017, revenue grew 39 percent year-over-year.
As previously reported, Spotify has cracking down fraudulent users, and is banning individuals who are stealing Premium benefits. As the world's largest music streaming service, there is a lot of buzz surrounding the company's IPO. Spotify said the accounts are still safe but access from those apps would be disabled. The company recognized that this illicit act is a huge loss of potential subscribers due for payments aside from reaching them with the advertisement.
