You should ditch Spotify until it ditches its latest policy

As of September 5 (in the U.S.), in order to keep your Spotify Premium family account, you need to allow the app to track your location, or check-in “from time to time” once again via Google Maps. Spotify says this is required to make sure you’re following silly rule number one outlined above. It also means Spotify wants to check in on you because it assumes you’re being dishonest. That’s not how this should work. That’s not how anything should work. Spotify knows this because it had already tested this “feature” and customer backlash forced it to stop.
